California is once again leading the way.

Seeking to cement California’s reputation as a global leader in combatting climate change, Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday signed two measures designed to push the state to 100 percent renewable electricity and so-called carbon neutrality by 2045.

Senate Bill 100 raises the state’s already ambitious goals for producing electricity from wind, solar and other green sources. The aim is to ensure greenhouse gas emissions are low enough that they can be absorbed by forests, oceans, soil and other natural systems.

Brown, who signed the bill amid a huddle of environmental and legislative leaders, also issued an executive order pushing the state to reduce its net output of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere — including from the single largest source, cars and trucks — to zero by the same 2045 deadline. Meeting the 100 percent carbon-neutral goal in just 27 years gives California the most ambitious such target of any government in the world, the governor’s office said.

“There’s no understating the importance of this measure,” Brown said, moments before signing the two actions. “SB 100 is sending a message to California and to the world that we’re going to meet the Paris [climate] agreement. And we’re going to continue … to transition our economy to zero carbon emissions and to have the resiliency and the sustainability that science tells us we must achieve.”

Thanks to Donald Trump America is the only country to have pulled out of the Paris climate agreement.

However, California continues to ignore Trump and is going to embarrass the rest of the country by reaching the goals all on their own as a way to show everybody that it is not only possible but profitable as well.

    Pipe dreams, Brown.

    This is fictional ornamental legislation. It misses the biggest problem – unbridled consumerism. The economy is one of nature, and has to do with economizing it.

    Nature can only support so much shopping and fucking.

    Brown needs to go home. His ideas do not solve – even remotely – the problem.

    What he should do is limit vehicle usage, not with fees, but repossession and jail time for violation. And put in trains. My Christ, the politics of transportation in CA are so fucking insane. MANDATORY PUBLIC EMMISIONLESS TRANSPORTATION FOR ALL. The train from LA to SF is one of epic distortion, Google that, it will make your head spin how ungodly and political it is.
    CA car ownership is essentially symbolic of the ‘american dream’, so a sea change is kind of needed NATIONALLY.
    Europe does fantastically with trains, something to consider.

    California supports this.

    As we approach 2045 don’t come to California. We don’t want you grasshoppers.

    Read some Aesop. California will not be as compasionate as the ants.
