This paper examines California’s GHG reductions between 2007 (when
the landmark Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32) took effect), to 2017, when
the California Air Resources Board adopted the most recent “Scoping Plan”
prescribing existing and proposed new GHG reduction mandates (Scoping Plan)
that CARB deems required to achieve the state’s legislated mandate of reducing
GHG 40% below the state’s 1990 GHG emission inventory by 2030, and the
unlegislated Executive Orders issued by the current and prior governor directing
the state to achieve an 80% reduction in GHG by 2050.
