FOR NUCLEAR ARMS MISSILE. IT COULD ONE DAY REACH U.S. MAINLAND. CALIFORNIA IS TAKING ANY STEP TO FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE.

JEFF: DAVE BRYAN JOINS US WITH A LOOK AT THE NEW LAW AND ITS POSSIBLE IMPACT. REPORTER: GOVERNOR BROWN SAID THIS IS BIG AND I THINK EVERYONE WOULD AGREE. GET READY FOR BIG CHANGES IN CALIFORNIA FROM THE CARS WE DRIVE IN THE FUEL THAT RUNS THEM TO MATERIAL USED TO BUILD HOMES AND OFFICES TO THE WAY WE MAKE ELECTRICITY ANTI-JOBS. THE NEW JOBS THAT MAY BE CREATED IN OTHER JOBS THAT COULD BE LEAVING. THE CLIMATE CHANGE LAW SIGNED BY GOVERNOR BROWN COULD AFFECT NEARLY EVERY ONE OF US VERY SOON. THERE WAS A — APPLAUSE AND ECHO PARKER AND GOVERNOR BROWN HELD UP ONE OF TWO HISTORIC CLIMATE CHANGE BILLS HE SIGNED ON THURSDAY. THOSE OPPOSED CALIFORNIA AT THE TOP OF THE PACK WORLDWIDE WHEN IT COMES TO TOUGH NEW LAWS TO COUNTER CLIMATE CHANGE. THIS SENDS A MESSAGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY. REPORT OF THE NEW LAWS THAT MANDATE THE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS ARE REDUCED TO AT LEAST 40% BELOW THE 1990 EMISSIONS LEVEL AND NO LATER THAN 2030 JUST 14 YEARS AND NOW. SUPPORTERS SAY THE NEW RESTRICTIONS WILL SLOW THE MARCH TOWARDS GLOBAL WARMING CREATE THOUSANDS PERHAPS ULTIMATELY EVEN MILLIONS OF CLEAN ENERGY JOBS AND DIRECTLY CLEAN THE AIR AND IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF THE MOST VULNERABLE CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS. CHILDREN MANY OF WHOM ARE GETTING ASTHMA, OLDER PEOPLE WITH RESPIRATORY DISEASE ARE THE VICTIMS AND IF WE DON’T STOP CLIMATE CHANGE ITS NOT GOING TO BE 110 COMICS GOING TO BE 130. NOT IN A FEW DAYS AND WEEKS THAT FOR MONTHS ON END. REPORT THE CRITICS LIKE STATE SENATOR JEFF STONE FROM RIVERSIDE COUNTY SAY THE TECHNOLOGY TO ACHIEVE THE GERMANIC REDUCTION TO GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS SIMPLY DOESN’T EXIST RIGHT NOW AND DISNEY THAN CLOSE. WE ARE ROLLING THE DICE TO HOPE THAT THESE PROVISIONS IN THESE TECHNOLOGIES WILL BE DONE IN TIME SO THAT WE CAN PRESERVE BUSINESS IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA. THIS IS ONE MORE NAIL INTO THE COMMERCE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA THAT IS STRUGGLING WITH BUSINESSES FLEEING THE STATE. REPORT THE CRITICS CHARGE THE LAW WILL FORCE CHANGES IN ALL OF OUR LIVES WITH THE STATE BEING ABLE TO DICTATE WHAT KIND OF CARS WE CAN DRIVE HIM A HOT NEW HOMES ARE BUILT INCLUDING DEMANDING THEY CREATE THEIR OWN RENEWABLE ENERGY SOMETHING CALLED NETZERO. A ZERO NET ENERGY REQUIREMENT FOR BUILDING NEW STRUCTURES, THAT IS AGAIN GOING TO ADD $40,000 TO THE AVERAGE PRICE OF A MIDDLE-CLASS HOME IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA. REPORTER: HALF OF OUR ENERGY WILL HAVE TO COME FROM RENEWABLE SOURCES WITHIN 14 YEARS MUCH LESS COAL AND GAS AND MUCH LESS SOLAR AND WIND. CRITICS SAY THIS WILL CAUSE ELECTRIC RATES TO SKYROCKET. GAS PRICES COULD RISE AS WELL BECAUSE REFINERIES WILL HAVE TO INVENT AND MAKE FUELS THAT POLLUTE LESS. THAT WE’LL MEET THE STANDARDS WE WILL SEE NOTHING BUT AN INCREASE IN THE COST OF FOSSIL FUEL UNTIL SUCH TIME THE STRATEGIES THAT THESE INVESTMENTS IN TECHNOLOGY COME TO FRUITION. REPORTER: SUPPORTERS OF THE NEW LAW ARGUE THEY WILL ACCELERATE THE DEVELOPMENT OF NECESSARY TECHNOLOGIES THIS BECAUSE CALIFORNIA BECOMES A HUGE OPEN MARKET FOR THEM STRONG MOTIVATION FOR SCIENTIFIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL ENTREPRENEURS TO MOVE QUICK WAY. REPORT THERE HAVE BEEN OTHER SURGEONS ARE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS BUT THE ULTIMATE IMPACT WILL BE DETERMINED BY THE DETAIL AND THAT WILL BE DECIDED BY THE CALIFORNIA AIR AND RESOURCES BOARD WHICH WILL BE OVERSEEN — OVERSEEN BY THE STATE LEGISLATURE. LEYNA: WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE IN MAKING THESE NEW STANDARDS WORK? REPORTER: THERE ARE PLENTY OF THEM TO TALK ABOUT. THERE ARE LOTS OF CHALLENGES THAT THE ONE THAT WILL LIKELY AFFECT US MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE IS TRANSPORTATION. TRANSPORTATION IS THE BIGGEST SOURCE OF GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS IN CALIFORNIA.
