We recommend that the state take the following actions:
-Cease issuing permits for new oil and gas extraction wells;
-Implement a 2,500-foot health buffer zone around homes,
schools, and hospitals where production must phase out;
-Develop a plan for the managed decline of California’s entire
fossil fuel sector to maximize the effectiveness of the state’s
climate policies; and
-Develop a transition plan that protects people whose livelihoods
are affected by the economic shift, including raising dedicated
funds via a Just Transition Fee on oil production.
