On January 4, 2018, California Governor Jerry Brown joined Oregon Governor Kate Brown and Washington Governor Jay Inslee in condemning President Donald Trump's plan to expand oil and gas drilling in federal waters as “reckless” and “short-sighted.” Ironically, as the three Governors condemned Trump’s offshore drilling proposal it turns out that California regulators under Jerry Brown have overseen a massive expansion of new offshore drilling in state waters in recent years — while a new map website, www.BrownvTrumpOilMap.com, reveals that Governor Jerry Brown controls four times as many offshore wells in state waters than Trump controls in federal waters.

One of the big news stories neglected by the media is the capture of California politics and the regulatory apparatus by Big Oil and other corporate interests in recent years - and the massive expansion of offshore drilling that has occurred in state waters under the helm of Governor Jerry Brown as a consequence of this regulatory capture. The enormous power that Big Oil exerts over California regulators was inadvertently revealed in a March 10, 2012 article in the Santa Barbara Independentthat discussed a so-called “marine protected area” created under the privately funded Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) Initiative that went ...
