Newsom’s Energy Regulations Have Oil Tankers Emitting More Than Twice What All of California’s Vehicle Fleet Do
California Governor Newsom seems fixated on the fact that he “only breaths California air”, as his justification for increasing GHG emissions from “the maritime fleet” outside of the State.

Newsom’s energy regulations have oil tankers emitting more than twice what all of California’s vehicle fleet do.
Newsom, by continually decreasing in-state oil production, has the state dependent on the maritime sector for importing foreign oil that adds, every year, more than twice the annual GHG emissions than the entire Californian transportation sector!
Summary: Utilizing excessive maritime emissions to justify reductions of in-state oil production may not be in the best interest of the world’s environment.
