SB 834 would block the expansion offshore drilling in California waters by prohibiting the State Lands Commission from approving any new leases for pipelines, piers, wharves, or other infrastructure needed to support new federal oil and gas development in the three-mile area off the coast that is controlled by the state.

After passing the California Senate Natural Resources Committee on a 6 to 2 vote on April 16, legislation authored by Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) to block the Trump Administration from expanding federal offshore oil drilling in new…

Trump is more interested in wars in outer space than using space science to provide measurements to help us survive on the only planet we know capable of supporting intelligent life. Too bad there’s not a bunch more intelligence down here and a lot less numbskullery.

Wise leaders facing a crisis want to suss out every bit of solid information they can about the parameters of that crisis and its potential impacts. But America today is led not by the wise but rather a brigade of numbskulls. And when it comes to the…

MotherJones is raising funds for a new special project to devote sustained attention to the weaponization of disinformation, responding to multiple calls for new journalistic endeavors to offset the negative effects of fake news.

Two new projects have come to our attention, both aimed at fighting disinformation and defanging fake news. One is a concerted new effort by Mother Jones to treat disinformation as a beat (whatever happened to CNN’s fake news reporter?). The other is a…

So either Entergy hired Hawthorn without doing any sort of due diligence about the company’s illicit history of mobilizing supposedly grassroots support for pro-industry energy policy, or that’s exactly why it hired Hawthorn. 

Last week, the New Orleans Lens reported that a group of pro-pipeline advocates who attended a public hearing last October were, in fact, paid actors. The hearing, to solicit public opinion on a proposed power plant, was stacked with a dozen or so actors…

Just like Trump’s claims to be an environmentalist, the Examiner’s claim that he’s greener than we think turns an ugly, dirty brown after even the briefest examination.

The Washington Examiner is a DC-focused outlet owned by a conservative billionaire(who also happens to own the influential conservative opinion magazine Weekly Standard–which, judging by a recent editorial, seems to be as sick of Pruitt as we are). The…

Politico gave Lesser space to bash EVs without any disclosure of his energy industry clients or the Manhattan Institute’s fossil fuel funding. Instead, Lesser’s consultancy is described as “an economic and regulatory consulting firm” in his Politico byline. This sounds a lot more innocent than the blurb on his LinkedIn profile, which discloses that he provides “services to clients in he [sic] energy industry.”

There seems to be no shortage of deceptive attacks on electric vehicles, whether from the GOP’s opposition research arm or the Koch brothers themselves. The latest attempt to malign EVs is a report released Monday, which claims increased adoption of EVs…

 “The only time you get anything done with water is when a Brown is governor. And there are no more Brown’s coming along so you better get it done,” Brown quipped.

Governor Jerry Brown’s plan to build the Delta Tunnels has accelerated at an alarming rate in the wake of the Metropolitan Water District’s vote on April 10 and the Santa Clara Valley Water District’s vote on May 8 to fully support the California Water…
