When you think of California, what images pop first into mind? Ocean &́#x80;Œ beaches &́#x80;Œ mountains &́#x80;Œ healthy living &́#x80;Œ Hollywood &́#x80;Œ beautiful people...All of which are true. ..But so is the fact that California is the third largest oil producing state in the nation, with a long history of all of the downsides that come with fossil fuel extraction: Dirty air, polluted land, contaminated water, ill health...Even as California&́#x80;™s Green economy has grown in the past ten years, 300 new oil and gas wells are drilled each month, under the not-so-watchful eye of Governor Jerry Brown...Nicknamed "Moonbeam Brown"during his first tenure as governor in the 1970s, the governor is more known today as "Big Oil Brown,"with the industry booming from urban drill sites in Los Angeles to the Central Valley, also home to America&́#x80;™s bread basket...Today while Governor Brown is an outspoken champion of reducing emissions that contribute to global warming he is simultaneously a big promoter of California&́#x80;™s oil and gas industry. Our new film asks, Can you really be for both?
