I recently testified before a California Senate Select Committee on the state’s climate policies about California’s interactions in the development of policy across the country and internationally. I highlighted the four main points below in my remarks, and you can read the full testimony here.
- California is not alone. It is joined by many other jurisdictions in reducing climate pollution.
- But California is the leader in designing climate policy.
- California’s leadership is accelerating the erosion of climate gridlock at the international level.
- The value of leadership accrues to Californians, through innovation, economic growth, and environmental quality.
