Statement from Sarah Rose, CEO, California League of Conservation Voters:

“This is what climate leadership looks like. Today California Governor Jerry Brown issued an executive order to establish a greenhouse gas reduction target for California of 40 percent below 1990 levels by the year 2030. Governor Brown has set a bold target in order to curb dangerous carbon pollution over the next 15 years – a target that keeps us on the path we set for our state in 2006 with the passage of the nation’s first landmark climate and clean energy law, AB 32. It’s up to all of us who care about our families, our communities, our wild places and the future of this beautiful, special place we call the Golden State to make this goal a reality.”

We believe that radical change is necessary and only by transforming our political system will we create the opportunity to take bold action on climate change. We elect and cultivate environmental champions, turn election victories into policy wins, hold our lawmakers accountable, and build political power for change. We inspire hope and action and fight for equity and justice for all Californians. We are in the business of changing what’s possible.
