Wade Crowfoot – California Climate Leadership

In 2007, California took the landmark step of putting into law the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020. Now poised to easily meet this goal, join Wade Crowfoot, Deputy Cabinet Secretary and Senior Advisor to California Governor Jerry Brown, for the inside track on how the state intends to significantly ramp up efforts to achieve 80% reductions in emissions by 2050. Presently advising policy including transportation, infrastructure and drought, Wade Crowfoot’s previous positions include: West Coast Regional Director for the Environmental Defense Fund, and Environmental Advisor and Director of Governmental Affairs for San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.

This speech was part of the 2014 California Climate Leadership Intensive hosted by Bioneers as a supplement to the Bioneers 2014 Annual Conference.
