California approves far-reaching strategy for tackling climate change. So what’s next? – CalMatters
California’s air board last week unanimously approved a sweeping state plan to battle climate change, creating a blueprint for the next five years to cut carbon emissions, reduce reliance on fossil fuels, and speed up the transition to renewable energy. Called a scoping plan, the 297-page strategy could serve as a roadmap for other states and countries to follow, including a long list of proposed measures that, once adopted, would slash California’s greenhouse gases and clean up air pollution in the smoggiest state in the nation.
