We're endorsing Governor Newsom in the September 2021 recall election because Newsom listens to climate hawks like us. Here are just some of the nation-leading steps he is taking: setting an end date for internal combustion engine car sales in California, moving California's carbon neutrality deadline up from 2045 to 2035, ending fracking by 2024, cleaning up abandoned oil wells, and investing big to fight climate impacts like wildfire, drought, and sea level rise.
There's no real alternative – every Republican running for governor in the recall election would reverse all of the critical progress California has made. According to the most recent UN IPCC climate report, we have run out of time for half measures and compromises – we need climate hawks like Governor Newsome at all levels of government. Californians must vote "No" on Question One on the recall ballot.
