City Visions: Course Correcting Climate Change, Part 1

Sep 10, 2018

September 10, 2018: What will it take to course correct climate change? Nothing short of a worldwide commitment, which is why California Governor Jerry Brown co-chaired the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco. The Summit highlighted achievements from around the world as policymakers, businesses leaders and grassroots organizations shared the ways they’re working together to achieve the goals of the 2015 Paris climate agreement.

Our host, Ethan Elkind, is joined by California State Senator Kevin de León, whose milestone bill requiring the state run on 100% clean electricity by 2045 was signed today by Governor Brown. Learn about the Summit and California’s groundbreaking clean energy policies in Part 1 of our three-part series on climate change.
