Event description

Description

While the Trump administration dials back progress in the fight against climate change, California has an opportunity: as the climate leaders on the global stage, we can pave the road to a zero-emissions future.

Earthjustice's new
Right to Zero campaign invites you to join California's brightest minds in transportation and clean energy policy for a panel discussion exploring Sacramento’s role in speeding up our transition to zero emissions.

Our panelists include:

  • Paul Cort, staff attorney at Earthjustice (moderator)
  • Assembly member Laura Friedman, 43rd Assembly District
  • Jimmy O'Dea, senior vehicles analyst in the Clean Vehicles program at the Union of Concerned Scientists
  • Ericka Flores, community organizer with Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice
  • Hannah Goldsmith, program manager at the California Electric Transportation Coalition

Our progress for zero emissions is about more than standing up to Trump: it’s about our clean air and climate future. California communities, businesses and public agencies are implementing cutting-edge energy and transportation technologies that are bringing us zero emissions, today.

For example, transit agencies from Los Angeles Metro to Alameda-Contra Costa Transit have committed to becoming 100 percent zero-emissions electric bus fleets by 2030. The Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach have also committed to becoming zero emissions by 2030. At the same time, the drumbeat for battery storage and renewable energy is growing, as natural gas power plants and pipelines are found unnecessary and unwise. And in 2018, Sacramento will have the opportunity to make the biggest move yet toward a zero-emissions California by establishing a 100 percent clean energy grid.

Please join us for an engaging panel discussion with renewable energy, electric vehicle and climate policy experts, to answer the question: what does a zero-emissions California look like and how can Sacramento lead the way there?

  • Doors open at 2:30; refreshments will be served!
  • Panel starts promptly at 3PM
  • Q&A will follow the panel discussion, ending at 4PM

RSVP today - An Eventbrite registration is required and space is limited.
