NEWS KQED-​​Radio: Stronger Climate Regulations Make Their Way to State Assembly

KQED Radio (FM 88.5) — Cal­i­for­nia and the 50/​50/​50 Cli­mate Plan

As Pres­i­dent Obama sells his cli­mate agenda to the nation, state leg­is­la­tors in Cal­i­for­nia are set to vote on a pack­age of bills that aim to reduce green­house gas emis­sions and cut petro­leum use in half. Gov. Jerry Brown and many high-​​profile state Democ­rats say Cal­i­for­nia needs to take the lead on mit­i­gat­ing cli­mate change. Oppo­nents of the new reg­u­la­tions, includ­ing indus­try groups and state Repub­li­cans, say the strict reg­u­la­tions go beyond lead­ing and put Cal­i­for­nia at risk.
