FRIDAY, JULY 23 AT 10:00AM (PACIFIC). California has made important progress meeting the challenge of climate change —and can continue to show the world a way forward.

100% clean and renewable power by 2045. We are already halfway there.

California’s goal of 5 million zero-emission vehicles on our roads by 2030 and 100% of new cars and light-duty trucks zero-emission by 2035 is doable. Significant progress has been made in both product development and sales.

Below are our biggest remaining emission reduction challenges
for clean air and a healthy climate:

How do we quickly and dramatically reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants—aka Super Pollutants? These gases are more powerful climate-forcers than CO2 and therefore should be the very highest priority.

How do we fully and finally clean up heavy-duty, diesel-powered, mostly goods movement sector - long-haul trucks, trains, ships, planes, port and construction equipment?

And what could we do if California voters approved $70B+ over the next two decades to fight for clean air and abate climate change? Perhaps all of the above.

Our panelists will be:
Chanell Fletcher, Deputy Executive Director of Environmental Justice, California Air Resources Board
Cliff Gladstein, President, Gladstein, Neandross & Associates (GNA)
Brian Goldstein, Executive Director, Energy Independence Now
Eric Hoffman, President, Utility Workers Union of America, Local 132
Madadh MacLaine, Founder and Secretary General of Zero Emissions Maritime Technology Association
Assemblymember Bill Quirk, California State Assembly, former climate change scientist at NASA
Dr. Sunita Satyapal, Director, Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office, U.S. Department of Energy
Michelle Sim, Director of Sustainability, Southern California Gas
