Several states have established visionary goals to reduce their climate footprints, with many striving to achieve carbon neutrality within the next 30 years—including California, Colorado, New York, Oregon, and Massachusetts. The achievement of these ambitious goals will be challenging.
Watch the recording of this 1-hour webinar, which took place June 17, to hear key findings from the recently published Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) report, “Getting to Neutral." Learn about strategies that can enable states to accelerate their efforts to fight climate change.
One of the report’s lead authors shared an analysis on how California could achieve carbon-neutrality by complementing the state's ongoing mitigation efforts with negative emissions technologies that remove CO2 from the atmosphere, making use of the state's natural biomass and geologic advantages. The first-of-its kind study—which documents how carbon neutrality can be achieved at a very modest cost, and using available technology—was the topic of extensive discussion within California state government, and spawned the introduction of multiple bills in the legislature.
