California’s Climate Crisis: A National Disaster

Climate change is rapidly accelerating in California, state report says

The report, entitled “California’s Climate Crisis: A National Disaster,” by the Pew Center on Global Climate Change, was released Wednesday. The center was established by the U.S. government and released its report Friday. The report is part of Pew’s ongoing series of reports on climate change and state of the nation issues.

“Today, we are releasing a comprehensive climate change report on California,” Gov. Brown said. “This is not an environmental crisis; it is our economic crisis.”

“The report was developed through a series of research workshops in California and across the nation to examine a range of potential futures with climate change,” said Pew’s executive director Steve Killelea. “It explores the vulnerabilities and challenges that face communities across the state, examines what we know today about climate change and its impacts on California, and evaluates policy changes to mitigate these risks in the next few years.”
