Jerry Brown: Climate Champion or Big Oil Ally?

California Gov. Jerry Brown poses as an anti-Trump climate-change savior, but his policies support Big Oil's agenda, says Adam Scow, California director at Food & Water Watch

Adam Scow is the California Director at Food & Water Watch. Adam oversees the California organizing program, which tackles some of California's greatest challenges to the long-term health of its water, energy and food.

SNIPPET from video interview:

DIMITRI LASCARIS:   Adam, I had the privilege of being in California earlier this year and I actually passed through some beautiful vineyards in the central valley area. To my astonishment, I saw oil pumps nestled among certain of the vineyards. These pumps were sucking oil out of the ground in the heart of one of the world's great wine producing regions. It struck me that such images simply don't fit with the mainstream media's narrative, where California is typically depicted as an environment leader. When it comes to support for the fossil fuels industry in particular, and fracking especially, how much do the policies of Jerry Brown's government actually differ from those of the Trump administration?

ADAM SCOW:   Well, it's a great question. The unfortunate fact is that they're not all that much better. California is a major oil-producing state. It's the third largest oil producing state in the country. In particular, Kern County is about 10% of the nation's crude. Indeed there are toxic oil operations, fracking, coexisting near agricultural fields, and creating a lot of pollution to our water and to our air. For the most part, the Brown administration here has supported big oil and their agenda. We've seen it in his refusal to ban fracking. In his current support of cap and trade, which allows big oil just to pay for its pollution, instead of making them reduce it, which is what we should be doing.

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
