California Battles Against Climate Change

Calif. Faces Big Hurdles to Meet Lofty Carbon-Neutral Goal
– Law360

Manatt’s Craig Moyer, chair of the firm’s land, environment and natural resources practice, was quoted by Law360 in an article on California’s newly implemented clean energy laws.

SB 100, which Governor Jerry Brown signed on Sept. 10, 2018, calls for 100% zero-carbon electricity by 2045. The publication noted that Brown also penned an executive order calling for statewide carbon neutrality by that same year.

“That commitment is the most aggressive commitment in the world,” said Moyer.
