Back to the future

California is already mobilizing against the Trump cartel's fever dream of oil drilling on the California coast.

From CNBC:

California has released its battle plan in a brewing war between the White House and coastal states opposed to the Trump administration's expansive offshore drilling ambitions.

The state's powerful land commission said on Wednesday it will refuse to issue permits for infrastructure that drillers need to bring oil and gas from offshore fields to land. Meanwhile, the California Coastal Commission, which has authority to review oil and gas activity off the state's shores, also formally opposed Trump's plan to allow new drilling in Pacific waters.

The hope is this strategy can become a template for use by the governors and congressional delegations of the other coastal states that think new drilling is a terrible idea.
