DC should be a little more like CA!
California has big plans for the future. Last week, the Golden State made not one, but two, big announcements about how they will respond to the climate crisis. On Monday of last week, Governor Jerry Brown was praised for his proposal to get half of all California's energy from renewable sources by 2030.
And, only one day later, that state broke ground on our nation's first-ever bullet train project, which is expected to reduce the massive carbon footprint of California's transportation sector. Considering that state has about 32 million registered vehicles on the road, a high-speed rail system will be a great step towards reaching that 50% renewable goal.
As the environmental group Earthjustice said, “We applaud Governor Brown for working to secure a cleaner, brighter future for California and paving the way for the rest of the country and the world to follow.”
