Linda Rudolph MD, MPH

“From drought to wildfires, the past ten years have shown us that California can’t waste a moment on plans and policies that will leave any of us behind. Climate-Safe California exemplifies the aggressive and bold initiative we need to secure the future for all Californians, and is setting an example for the nation and the rest of the world to follow.”

“How do we move out of overshoot and start living again within the means of our one planet, at the necessary speed and scale? Just study and implement the pathways laid out in the Climate-Safe California campaign. That’s what’s needed. Like with COVID-19 it protects ourselves here in California, and by protecting us in California, we also protect our precious planet and all fellow human beings. I want a resilient and bright future, and Climate-Safe California shows us the way.”

Mathis Wackernagel, PhD.

“The Climate Center’s suite of decarbonization policies are all required to stay below 2°C (3.6°F) warming and avoid dangerous climate chaos. We need aggressive, equitable policies in place now so society can transition to a fossil-fuel-free economy as quickly and safely as possible.”

Carl Mears, PhD.

“The COVID-19 crisis shows how inadequate our social safety net is. A Climate-Safe California will continue to heal our environment, relocalize our economy and food systems, and decentralize our energy systems.”

Melanie Bagby

Councilmember, Cloverdale City Council

“California must lead the world by achieving the goals of Climate-Safe California. Drawing down the carbon we’ve already put into the atmosphere is central to the State achieving carbon neutrality and net-negative emissions. It is time to ensure carbon sequestration on California’s natural and working lands, at scale, as a centerpiece of our pathway toward a livable and climate resilient future. Meeting this goal will have cascading beneficial impacts on CA’s communities and vital ecosystems.

Jeff Creque, PhD, and Torri Estrada
