Overall trends in the inventory also demonstrate that the carbon intensity of California's economy (the amount of carbon pollution per million dollars of gross domestic product (GDP)) is declining, representing a 33% decline since the 2001 peak, while the state's GDP has grown 37% during this period, '" was the then current state of progress on California's greenhouse-gas-emissions-reduction activity in "Progress report: "California on track to reach 2020 GHG target of 427 MMTCO2e", an Air Quality Matters article posted on January 12 this year. The achievement is roughly equal to taking 12 million cars off the road or saving 6 billion gallons of gasoline a year. "This is great news for the health of Californians, the state's environment and its economy, even as we face the failure of our national leadership to address climate change". Emissions in 1990 were 431 million metric tons and they were 429.4 million metric tons in 2016.
Brown was referring to a California law that mandated that emissions levels return to 1990 levels by 2020. The next goal is to reduce emissions 40-percent further by 2030. Industrial and electric power emissions saw the biggest drops during this period, and this is likely the result of an increase in the use of solar electricity generation and hydroelectric power, which correlated to a 15 percent decrease in using natural gas for electricity.
Meeting the 2030 goal will reportedly be much more hard for California. But Alex Jackson, senior attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council's San Francisco office said that it is possible, according to The Hill.

California hit its 2020 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction target four years ahead of schedule, according to 2016 emissions data released yesterday by the state. The transportation sector - which accounted for 41 per cent of total emissions - increased its emissions in 2016 by 2 per cent due to increased fuel consumption.
Thanks to the carbon price signal created by the cap-and-trade program - making fossil fuel generation more expensive - cleaner, out-of-state electricity is increasingly taking the place of fuels such as coal, says CARB. "But the state also saw cars and trucks use a record amount of biofuels - 1.5 billion gallons in all - as a result of the state's Low Carbon Fuel Standard".
California has a head start toward reaching the 2030 target because of its tailpipe emissions standards, which have exceed federal minimums for years, Jackson said.
He said the goal is achievable, despite "new headwinds from a hostile federal administration" that has moved to scale back or suspend national climate programs.
While the world's emissions are once again on the rise and the Trump Administration is pulling the USA backward on climate progress at the federal level, states and regions continue pushing ahead, and California is at the front of the pack.
