climate priorities in 2020 WA Leg--webinar for grassroots leaders - Shared screen with speaker view

What is the average carbon intensity of electricity in WA state?
Michael Maddox
34:58
That last message--lots of fossil fuels avoided for only 1 penny per gallon--that's attractive.
John S -- WA
43:51
Regarding the Clean Fuel Std, why does carbon intensity descend to a plateau at 80 g/MJ then stabilize? That's an improvement of only 20%. Why not go farther?
Selden Prentice

Is there legislation expected on a road usage charge?
Michael Maddox
46:06
Could you type who (and what their position/organization is) while they are talking? Thanks.

Will the bill on emission limits be consistent with the October 2018 PCC report?
Kimberly Larson
48:22
Vlad Gutman-Britten, WA State Director for Climate Solutions spoke first. Kelly Hall, WA Policy Manager with Climate Solutions spoke on clean fuels, Leah Missik, Transportation Policy Manager with CS spoke on funding of the system, and Mo McBroom, Director of Government Relations with TNC is speaking now on the emissions limits and natural solutions.

"WA Carbon Neutral by 2050"--that could be a bumper sticker.
Kimberly Larson

why not residential PACE
Court Olson
59:21
Residential PACE is a harder political lift for reasons I could elaborate if you wish to email me. The Shift Zero task force (which I co-lead) chose to leave the residential PACE lift for a later time after the commercial PACE (C-PACER) is up and running. Here is my email if you want more info: court.olson@yahoo.com.

If the 2020 Lobby Day was on the 31st, we could get the kids who strike that day to join.
Fran Korten
01:02:13
What comments should we be making to the PSClean Air Agency?
Selden Prentice
01:03:31
To clarify my earlier question — to prevent 2.7 degrees of warming, greenhouse gas pollution must be reduced by 45% from 2010 levels by 2030. Will the new legislation require those same reductions?
Katherine Leggett
01:08:08
Which country was that?
Selden Prentice
01:08:13
Sweden

just passed on to 2 Texas Legislators what Washington just passed on climate. They were super excited about your leadership. It gives them a model and hope. So what Washington does does matter in lots of way.
John S -- WA
01:12:21
The PSCAA has regulatory authority only in the four Puget Sound counties, right? And the Agency can simply write a rule after they go through the comment and hearing process, right?
Michael Maddox
01:12:23
For us in the general community, having an easy-to-understand goal, such as Washington Carbon Neutral by 2050, is important. And yes, it could be written on a bumper sticker All the details flow from that. The reason to accomplish that goal: for the future, for our kids, for our grandkids, for our planet, for what's right. That's understandable. All the rest, the transportation initiatives, the carbon deficits and carbon credits, and all the programs, can be accomplished by the experts who know, but us in the general public need to know that carbon neutral by 2050 is something that we WA can do for the climate and the planet.

Thanks for the webinar. Great info.

Thanks for the webinar. Sound system could have been better — some voices kind of echo-y. Some speakers need to speak more slowly.
