Spurred by a worsening drought, extreme heat, and wildfires raging on the West Coast, California Governor, Gavin Newsom, established new goals to accelerate the state’s timeline of reaching its 2030 and 2045 carbon neutral targets. In a letter to Laine Randolph, the Chair of the California Air Resources Board (CARB), Governor Newsom called for additional objectives be added to the 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan. These additions would include offshore wind, climate friendly homes, energy transitions, methane leaks, and carbon removal. CARB will meet later this year to discuss adapting a final version of the 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan.

To help Californians track the state’s progress towards these goals and to understand the actions being taken, the California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA) has launched a new climate dashboard.
