California Greening: Leading Americans to a Carbon Neutral World -

Baden-Württemberg and California Leading the Under2 Coalition

Talk and debate

In the era of Trump, California has become a place and a symbol for green leadership. California's leaders and citizens at large have rejected climate change deniers in Washington, and they remain committed as the world's 6th-largest economy to reducing carbon emissions to net zero. David Biggs explores three stories of California Greening in more detail, focusing on emissions, water and energy.

The Under2 Coalition can be seen as a perfect example: an agreement to collaborate more intensely in order to fight climate change which originated from a bilateral partnership between California and Baden-Württemberg.
