California Not Ready for Climate Change

Authors of a recent study have concluded that California is unprepared to face global warming challenges, and water and electricity agencies in particular have been urged to act immediately.

"The report examines the state's capability to provide water and electricity to the public as well as protecting coastal resources, air quality, public health and ecosystems in response to climate change and extreme weather events such as wildfires. It is based on previous studies done by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, UC Davis and Scripps Institution of Oceanography, among other researchers.

'We need to help agencies get prepared to deal with climate change,' said Louise Bedsworth, a research fellow at the institute and co-author of the report. 'In some areas, we need to be acting now.'"
