Julia Brownley on Energy & Oil

 

 


Move away from dirty fossil fuels and foreign oil

I have been a staunch advocate for moving America away from our dependence on dirty fossil fuels and foreign oil, and have supported efforts to cut our greenhouse gas emissions. We must become energy independent and make strategic investments in clean, renewable, and sustainable energy right here at home. I will continue to fight for the protection of our coastlines and open spaces, as well as a healthy environment for our community and our country. I have been and will continue to be deeply involved in cleaning up chemical and radioactive contamination at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory, and the clean up of the former Halaco metal smelting operation to better protect the health and safety of our community.
