Our colleagues at NAEP are hosting a webinar that that should be of interest to many of us. This event presents a review of greenhouse gas emissions in California and offers some very practical take-aways.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions Thresholds: A Cautionary Tale from California
Presented by Michael Hendrix, Jennifer Reed, & Walter Rich
Thursday, October 8, 2020, 1:00 – 2:30 pm

Environmental review of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in California has evolved since 2010, when GHG emissions analysis was first incorporated into the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Court cases and improved threshold methodologies have shaped the current landscape, yet the absence of consistent guidance from agencies and the threat of legal challenges test Lead Agencies’ ability to meet increasingly aggressive statewide goals and local/regional climate action plans. The California Association of Environmental Professionals (AEP) Climate Change Committee has developed proposed solutions in a forthcoming white paper. This panel will discuss the evolution of GHG emissions analysis in CEQA and provide solutions.
