Description

John Hofmeister, former president of Shell Oil
Bob Holycross, Global Director of Sustainability & Vehicle Environmental Matters, Ford Motor Company
Mary Nichols, Chair, California Air Resources Board
Greg Dalton, Founder and Host, Climate One

Just ten years ago, an entire state running on 100 percent renewable electricity was considered fanciful. But this dreamy vision became reality when, with the backing of big utilities, Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 100 into law, committing California to 100 percent use of zero-carbon electricity by 2045. Then Brown took it one giant step further, catching even insiders by surprise, by signing an executive order committing California to economy-wide carbon neutrality by 2045. What will it take for California to achieve such a feat? What are the obstacles?

Join us for a discussion on Governor Brown’s surprise gambit to take the world’s fifth largest economy to net zero with John Hofmeister, former president of Shell Oil, Bob Holycross, Global Director of Sustainability & Vehicle Environmental Matters at Ford Motor Company, and Mary Nichols, Chair of the California Air Resources Board.
