GOVERNOR’S GHG REDUCTION GOALS

On GHG Reduction Governor Brown offered the following:

“In fact, we are well on our way to meeting our AB 32 goal of reducing carbon pollution and limiting the emissions of heat-trapping gases to 431 million tons by 2020. But now, it is time to establish our next set of objectives for 2030 and beyond.

“Toward that end, I propose three ambitious goals to be accomplished within the next 15 years:

1. Increase from one-third to 50 percent our electricity derived from renewable sources;

2. Reduce today’s petroleum use in cars and trucks by up to 50 percent;

3. Double the efficiency of existing buildings and make heating fuels cleaner.”
