California, USA.- California has passed a series of bills designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and accelerate the phase-out of fossil fuels, its most aggressive effort yet to tackle climate change.
Lawmakers greenlit a record $54 billion in climate spending and endorsed sweeping new restrictions on oil and gas drilling, as well as a mandate for the state to stop emitting carbon dioxide emissions by 2045.
The bills, passed last night at the end of a frenetic two-year legislative session in Sacramento, marked a victory for Governor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat who has sought to cast himself as a climate leader by raising his national profile and began to generate speculation about a possible candidacy for the White House.
As heat waves, droughts and wildfires have broken records in California, Newsom has faced mounting pressure from climate activists to do more.
As lawmakers voted in Sacramento, the National Weather Service warned that a “very dangerous” heat wave would hit the state over Labor Day weekend.
