The Climate Center’s Climate-Safe California is a powerful solution to the climate crisis. Climate experts have called this a unique, bold, urgently needed, and comprehensive campaign that will catalyze similar efforts in other states, the nation, and the world. The Climate Center is working with dozens of partners to seize this moment and enact by 2025 the bold policies required by science that will put California on track for a climate-safe future by 2030. We define Climate-Safe California as having reached net-negative emissions (sequestration greater than emissions or becoming a net carbon sink), achieving initial stages of drawdown. The overarching goal is for California to commit to 80% below 1990 levels of GHG emissions and net-negative emissions by 2030, accelerating timelines for existing state policies.
