Report: At Current Pace, California Will Hit Climate Targets More Than 100 Years Too Late
According to a report released this week, California could be more than 100 years late in meeting its 2050 climate targets if the current pace of emissions reductions holds.
The 11th annual California Green Innovation Index, released by the nonprofit Next 10 and prepared by Beacon Economics, finds that the state will need major policy and technology breakthroughs to meet its 2030 and 2050 emissions reductions goals.
Noel Perry is the founder of Next 10.
Perry: “The research in our latest report shows that although California hit our 2020 climate goals early, we could be decades behind in hitting our 2030 and 2050 goals if, and that's an important if, if we don't have new ambitious sets of innovative policy goals. So the report is sobering, but there is in fact hope. But we need to get going.”
