This paper extends the goals of Part 1’s (and California’s) SB 100 to our entire country and explains how this can really happen via a new powerful coalition. It also delves into the methods behind our first major goal for the U.S. (50% greenhouse gas reductions by 2030). The above content is from two highly-respected sources.

If there's one issue that can push through the unnecessary gridlock and division, I hope it's this one and taking care of our one planet!

Hi Matt, thanks for the comment.

In spite of everything we are still a capitalistic country, and even the largest publicly-traded corporations in the world listen to the largest investors in the world. Also there are many of the latter, and I'm guessing that CalPERS isn't the largest.

Really great idea to spend trillions and trillions of dollars on a claimed problem in the distant future. Yep, impoverish folks today in response to what is essentially a religious belief that cannot be proved.
