The Climate Center advocates for accelerated, equitable climate policies. California, as the world’s fourth-largest economy, must step up its climate leadership to catalyze action by other states, nations, and the world to ensure a climate-safe future for all. Below are this year’s letters of support or opposition we have sent to policymakers, along with our partners, to enact the policies we need to reduce climate pollution and build resilient communities by 2030.
