'Today, about a third of California’s electricity comes from renewables, including solar, wind, geothermal, biomass and small hydropower dams. Solar installations, in particular, skyrocketed. In just five years, solar went from less than 1 percent of California’s in-state electricity generation in 2012 to over 11 percent in 2017. But electricity from natural gas has also held steady. In 2017, it represented more than 40 percent of California’s in-state generation.'
Time Mag: 'The renewable energy measure would require California’s utilities to generate 60 percent of their energy from wind, solar and other specific renewable sources by 2030. That’s 10 percent higher than the current mandate. The goal would then be to use only carbon-free sources to generate electricity by 2045. It’s merely a goal, with no mandate or penalty for falling short. California’s renewable energy goal is not as ambitious as Hawaii, which has adopted a 100 percent renewable energy mandate.'
Marc Morano, the publisher of the influential Washington-based website ClimateDepot.com, said that many of America’s most strident leftist environmental activist groups are heavily financed by Russian money. He said those efforts seek to hamper the U.S. economy by inhibiting the use of fossil fuels and encouraging the wasting of government funds on research into implausible man-caused climate change. Morano’s new book “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change” is considered one of the most complete guides to the history of the greatest fraud in history: man-caused climate change.
