Today, after several actions related to California’s water crisis, Gov. Jerry Brown issued an Executive Order enacting the strictest climate change targets of any North America territory. The new goals are to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030. California is on target to reach the existing goal of matching 1990 emissions levels by 2020, and may well exceed that target before 2020.
The overarching goal is to reduce emissions to 80% of 1990 levels by 2050. The consensus among scientists is that this will mitigate the risk of catastrophic climate change.
