Is California On Track to Attain Its Energy & Greenhouse Gas Emission Goal? Interview w. Jane C.S. Long

Five years ago the California Council On Science & Technology (CCST) published a study that recommended that the state embrace a wide range of technologies to assure that its plan could meet the growing energy needs of the state, as well as its commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Five years have passed and critical strategies lag significant progress in solar and wind power. Decision makers are revisiting recommendations made in that study and exploring new ones.

The study that made the recommendation is California Energy Future: View to 2050, June 2011. Jane C.S. Long is the co-chair of the study. Burton Richter, Nobel Prize Winner was among the many distinguished scientists and economists who helped prepare the study.

Michael Killen asked Jane C.S. Long to help us understand the present situation.

Michael Killen is an Internet/TV Talk Show Host, the Artist who made the Dire Consequences of Greenhouse Gases: Send in the Clowns Series of Paintings and Events, and he published over 300 studies.  He adds, “It is clearly time for the CCST, or other organization, to commission a study that will help policymakers determine what to do now, to help the state meet its energy and emissions requirements.
