Jerry Brown Orders Greenhouse Gas Emissions Cuts

Hosted by

Today, Governor Jerry Brown issued an executive order to drastically cut greenhouse gas emissions over the next 15 years. By 2030, the governor says, emissions must be 40% below where they were all the way back in 1990. Ironically, this comes the same day the American Lung Association ranked Southern California as having the country’s worst air pollution. So how significant is Brown’s order, and what will it mean for California’s businesses and residents?
