A Proposal in California creates a climate-safe economy
Global warming is an emergency with the highest possible stakes: the future of life on Earth. There are dozens of scalable solutions available now to reverse the climate crisis. The time is right for more aggressive climate action in California, serving as an example to inspire and move the world.
The Climate-Safe California campaign can seize the opportunity to enact by 2025 the bold science-based policies to put California, and the world, on the path to net-negative emissions by 2030 while not leaving behind workers and communities dependent on the fossil fuel industries of today. Read how they propose to achieve rapid decarbonization goals and ignite an economic boom.
In 2021, the Climate Center’s Climate-Safe California webinar series took a dive into the science, economics, policy, and technical aspects of their Climate-Safe California platform. In this series of webinars the Climate Center brought experts from across California to discuss the latest climate science, targets for emissions reductions based on that science, and the policies that will transition us away from fossil fuels, lead to sustainable mobility, decarbonizing buildings, and natural carbon sequestration.
In August 2021, a policy summit brought together scientists and policy makers to examine opportunities for climate action in the face of impacts like drought and extreme heat. The Summit covered proposed legislation in the areas of sustainable transportation, community energy resilience, nature-based carbon sequestration, and more.
