In July Governor Jerry Brown and representatives of the oil industry crafted a bill to renew California’s greenhouse gas cap and trade program. The governor then rammed the bill through the legislature in less than two weeks. In this forum, oil industry experts and activists in the climate and environmental justice movement will explain what cap and trade has (not) accomplished, what the new law will do, and how it passed so quickly. And we’ll talk about future strategies for stopping the fossil fuel industry from poisoning communities, increasing climate catastrophe, and corrupting our politics.

Speakers:
-Roger Lin, Center for Race, Poverty, and the Environment
-Danny Cullenward, Stanford School of Earth, Energy, Environmental Sciences
-Amy Vanderwarker, California Environmental Justice Alliance
-RL Miller, California Democratic Party Environmental Caucus
-Janet Stromberg, 350 Bay Area
-Representatives from the Asian Pacific Environmental Network and the California Nurses Association
