Most Difficult of Gov. Jerry Brown’s Climate Plan Goals to Reach:

Michael Killen, who has published over 400 major business studies says, “CA’s Climate Plan ‘Goal #2- Reduce 50% of the Use Petroleum in Vehicle, 2030’  may be the most challenging of the ‘Six Governor Brown’s Climate Goals,’ to reach. That is because we cannot count on sales of 5 Million electric vehicles by 2030. Without those sales, it may be impossible to reduce gas and diesel use in cars significantly.
