Report to the Board on Impacts of Climate Change on California: Scenarios Assessment Findings
Staff will provide an overview of the findings of the 2006 and 2008 Climate Action Team scenarios analysis report on the impacts of future climate change on various sectors of the California economy. This is the second biennial report to the Governor pursuant to Executive Order S-3-05. The analysis is based on several climate change scenarios that have different assumptions for greenhouse gas emissions, population growth and changes in demographics, and the nature of the economy. Topics to be covered include estimates of future temperature change and possible impacts on public health, air quality, water resources, sea level, agriculture, and forests.
Public Meeting to Consider the Assembly Bill 32 (AB 32) Scoping Plan to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions in California
In 2006, Governor Schwarzenegger signed the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB 32). AB 32 directs the Air Resources Board to adopt a Scoping Plan on or before January 1, 2009, for achieving the maximum technologically feasible and cost-effective reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. At the Board meeting, staff will present the Proposed Scoping Plan for Board discussion. The Board intends that this public meeting will be the main forum for hearing oral testimony on the Plan. The Board will not take action on the Proposed Scoping Plan until its December 11-12 public meeting.
OPPORTUNITY FOR MEMBERS OF THE BOARD TO COMMENT ON MATTERS OF INTEREST
Board members may identify matters they would like to have noticed for consideration at future meetings and comment on topics of interest; no formal action on these topics will be taken without further notice.
