California's new greenhouse gas target: Jerry Brown's clean economy takes shape

Report summary

On April 29th, California Governor Jerry Brown issued Executive Order B-30-15 mandating a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. The move was first telegraphed in Brown's January inaugural address where he discussed climate change at length and proposed three new 2030 goals: a 50 percent renewable portfolio standard; a 50 percent reduction in petroleum use in cars and trucks “from today’s levels”; and a doubling of energy efficiency in existing buildings.
