California has set the aggressive and vital goal to become carbon neutral by 2045.  This means that California must continue on its path to decarbonizing its economy by transitioning to renewable sources of energy and fuel.  However, current models predict that these measures alone will not be sufficient to completely decarbonize California’s economy; residual emissions from transportation, in particular, will be difficult to eliminate completely in 25 years. California can counteract these residual emissions with negative emissions: utilizing practices and technologies that directly remove carbon dioxide from the air.  

Come hear Sarah Baker, Deputy Group Leader, Lawrence Livermore National Labs and lead author of the study "Getting to Neutral", present the results of this import study for California.
