Decarbonizing California: 2020–2050 - How the Golden State can lead the world in becoming cleaner, greener and more prosperous 

California is leading in the fight against climate change.

The Known Problem: Despite our efforts, California is warming. In the past century, our wildfire season has expanded by an extra 38 days. The Sierra snowpack is shrinking. Climate scientists anticipate 3-5°F temperature increase in Los Angeles by midcentury.
The Action We're Taking: California’s landmark climate law, AB32, was designed to reduce our state’s contributions to climate change. And it’s working. Our first target will be reached: we will stabilize greenhouse gas emissions at 1990 levels by 2020. However, the law’s second target—reduce emissions to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050—will require determination and innovation. Fortunately, Californians possess both attributes in abundance.
The Next Steps: The Decarbonizing California conference will demonstrate how our state can meet our 2050 targets while simultaneously improving our lives and growing the economy.

Your Invitation: Supported by important organizations, Decarbonizing California is your opportunity to hear from the front line. Speakers to be announced soon!
