A sustainable world can start in California

Combating Climate Change

  • As a major hub for trans-pacific trade, we must design a visionary goods movement strategy that modernizes our ports, improves efficiency, electrifies our transit system, bolsters economic productivity — and cleans our air.
  • At the same time Trump is rolling back federal fuel efficiency standards, Mary Barra, the CEO of General Motors, believes the future is “all-electric”. California has already set a goal of 4 million zero-emission vehicles by 2030, a far cry from the 315,000 currently on the road. I want to put us on the fast track starting with a goal of zero diesel pollution by 2030. Diesel is a hat trick pollutant. It needs to go. But instead of driving jobs out of the state, we need to replace diesel with zero pollution clean technology like hydrogen fuel cells and Electric Vehicles.
