Oil ‘is killing us.’ Activists call on Jerry Brown to halt California drilling

Consumer and health care groups launched a campaign Wednesday, “Brown’s Last Chance,” calling on Governor Brown to freeze all new oil and gas drilling in California, and phase out current production.

“We’re here to tell the governor that climate leadership means … standing with us and stopping oil drilling,” said Jamie Court, president of Consumer Watchdog, which is leading the campaign with a broader coalition that includes the California Nurses Association and the California-based Courage Campaign.
