Due to the close proximity of the dairies and pipelines to the communities of Shafter, Buttonwillow, and Rio Bravo Greely, an analysis of impacts of exposure to sensitive receptors must be conducted.
The consequences of climate change do not impact all Californians equally, and here in the San Joaquin Valley, community members and agricultural workers are on the frontlines of the air pollution, water scarcity and increased heat that are inextricably tied to climate change.
Our health, well-being and future prosperity depend on enacting meaningful solutions to accelerate the transition off of polluting fuels.
That’s why it’s so disheartening when the lawmakers we’ve elected to represent us push false climate solutions rather than championing the bold action we so desperately need. California legislators have pushed a misleading picture of the climate benefits of so-called “renewable natural gas” while ignoring the air quality and water impacts that will further burden San Joaquin Valley communities.
