SubjectRein in California’s use of Amazon crude oil

I was shocked to learn that California consumes nearly 50% of all oil exports from the Amazon globally (nearly 1 in 9 gallons pumped in-state on average). I call on the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to not be complicit in driving new oil drilling in the Amazon. It’s essential that you regulate refineries’ crude sources and volumes. I ask that CARB require California refineries to ensure that they are not sourcing crude oil from regions where there are human rights violations and to require refineries to ensure that they will not source crude from areas of new drilling in the Amazon. Finally, commit California to new fuel efficiency standards and expanded electrification of fleets that consume the most Amazon oil. Thank you for your consideration.
