Group says Gov Brown not so green after all

Santa Monica—As Governor Jerry Brown’s regulators race to reopen Aliso Canyon without knowing what caused the biggest methane leak in U.S. history, a dozen advocacy and public interest law groups concur that Brown is falling short on environmental regulation in six out of seven key categories.


The comprehensive review of Governor Jerry Brown’s environmental record published by Consumer Watchdog concludes that, despite Brown’s national profile for fighting climate change, and even as he serves as a foil to Trump’s anti-environmental policies, Brown is not as green as he could be. His record is “Murky” at best on a scale of “Clean” to “Dirty.” 

The following public interest groups concur in the report’s analysis, assessments, and recommendations: Food & Water Watch, Physicians for Social Responsibility-Los Angeles, Restore The Delta, Rootskeeper, Powers Engineering, Basin and Range Watch, Aguirre & Severson LLP, Public Watchdogs, Southern California Watershed Alliance, The Desal Response Group, Committee to Bridge the Gap, and Consumer Watchdog.
