California Gubernatorial Candidates on Climate One

For fifteen years, California Governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jerry Brown charted a steady bi-partisan course as climate leaders. Their combined legacies include reduced carbon emissions, a clean energy economy and forward-thinking electric transportation. During that time, the effects of climate disruption -- rising seas, shrinking aquifers, wildfires and drought - have become increasingly clear. Greg Dalton sits down with three of the leading gubernatorial candidates to ask them how they plan to take on California’s biggest environmental challenge. Guests: Travis Allen, California State Assemblyman (R-Huntington Beach) Gavin Newsom, California Lt. Governor; former mayor, San Francisco (D) Antonio Villaraigosa, former mayor, Los Angeles (D) Felicia Marcus, Chair, California State Water Resources Control Board Portions of this program were recorded live at The Commonwealth Club in San Francisco in 2018.
