Governor Newsom Bans Fracking In California

Governor Newsom has issued an executive order to fracking California starting in 2024.

He is also calling on regulators to phase out all oil production in California by 2045. Newsom has instructed regulators to draft new regulations in the next four years. A similar proposal to ban fracking was recently defeated in the legislature.

With the order, California would be the largest oil-producing state to ban fracking. Environmentalists reportedly praise Newsom for his efforts, but feel that the decision to ban fracking has come too late due to the constant harm placed on our climate from oil extraction.
