Net Negative Emissions in California by 2030: Can We Do It?

Thursday, January 21 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Our only hope for a vibrant, healthy, and equitable future for all is to enact bold climate policies now, not decades from now. The solutions exist in every sector- from energy and transportation to natural and working lands management. Yet we still lack the political will. Ms. Cohen will highlight recent climate science findings followed by an overview of The Climate Center’s Climate-Safe California initiative and recent successes. She will inspire citizen action to ensure that California, the world’s 5th largest economy, steps up its climate leadership by enacting the bold policies required by science soon. She will conclude with a hopeful view of our future to protect the planet for future generations.
