Sacramento is making progress in combating climate change with a range of measures. It also includes the controversial decision to allow the country’s last nuclear power plant to run longer than planned.
For decades, California has seen itself as a spearhead in the fight against climate change. How did you drive the Golden State? Already in the seventies, long before other states and the federal government, introduced emissions standards to combat polluted air around Los Angeles and other major cities. Today, unlike many other states, Sacramento taxes packaging and straws, and there is also a commitment to climate protection in the international arena, for example As host of global climate conferences like 2018 in San Francisco. And what happens on the West Coast certainly has repercussions in relation to the rest of the country, with California ultimately being the most populous state with a population of 40 million, which is itself the fifth largest economy in the world.
