100 percent clean. Only 3% of what is needed. The Solar cells are made on the moon to cut down on pollution. The Batteries are buried in the Sun.

Please try to buy hybrids and EV's, thanks.

Something tells me it's all too late far too late, the Developing World is not going to go green at least not to the level required. Unless the developed World is going to do free Technology transfers ie become a grown-up, which is not going to happen. The Trump administration has disclosed their projection, if correct it all too late no matter what's done, hence their lack of interest in trying to stop the inevitable. It looks like we're going to have to learn Terraforming a lot sooner than we needed to do, and Earth is going to be our first and possible last experiment, in getting this right. Here's hoping...

ANY government that MANDATES these measures is in FACT
a tyrannical and corrupt government.
.......
And what the low IQ liberals don't understand is Solar only works well in the WEST!!!
.......
Due to solar exposure levels in the rest of the nation, solar panels produce MUCH less power.
......
So you must spend 2-3 times moreto generate the same amount of power as in southern California.
.....
Another FACT is that without government welfare, solar companies wouldhave gone bankrupt DECADES ago because like recycling, it is in FACT a money LOSER

So is california going to cut the lines entering the state too or just pretend to be 100% clean energy? Solor panels are good for 20 years or so. After that the panels are crap and also hazardous to dispose of. Its just a short time fix and not long term. Same with all the batteries, what about all those when they go bad too?... also, at 3:38, thats a coal plant scrubber system, thats steam, not pollution. Media pushing more bullshit.

So who and where are you idiots gonna get the lead for all those green cars your forcing on the public and what is your plan for recycling all of that TOXIC LED?
watcher someone awake
Climate Hoax brought to you by California's Extreme Leftist-Socialist Progressives based on junk science. And accepted by all the gullible little sheep as they happily go off to slaughter...

They will make other states pay for it! Fix your damn state without help !

We already have 5.2c of warming locked into the system. Thanks to the effects of global dimming we don't get to experience this. Clean energy will rocket us hothouse. This is the paradox of quantum meteorology. Dirty energy buys us more time and more pain while clean energy puts an end to the human experiment in applied consciousness very quickly.

This is an extraordinary step, and I commend California for this, but no one is going to convince me that Calfornia is an environmental "leader" or whatever shit until they fix up some of their other problems that are just as bad for the environment.

Better hope the Sun and wind return to the square miles of solar panels, and wind turbines.Before the vast battery banks  running hospitals, dinking water and sewerage pumping stations, etc go dead.
Bruce Lee
You know it sounds even better than clean energy.... Free energy

i got solar panels three years ago here +18553395376 and now i can feel like saving money cos my bills are pretty small

California is leading the way. I just did a video a few days ago about tesla and how the laws are in favor of electric vehicles and California is going to be an all electric car state by 2040. The program is called the zero emissions vehicle program. There are 8 other states who are trying to follow their footsteps but are taking way too long. The rest of the country needs to catch up and make this happen sooner! Look what Elon Musk did in Australia, call him and this will be done by 2030!!!!!

Trump: "Make America Venus Again!"...and the rest of the planet, too.

Our continuing series called What's Working looks at innovations that are paying off in America, from education to infrastructure and more. Labor Department figures show solar panel and wind turbine technicians are the two fastest-growing careers in the country. Texas is where you'll find the most of those wind industry jobs. The traditionally conservative state is leading the way for renewable energy across the nation. Steve Inskeep reports.
