California has set some pretty ambitious climate goals. By 2045 all energy has to come from renewable sources - solar, water and wind. Nicole talks with environment reporter Ezra David Romero about plans to potentially build 800 to 900 floating wind turbines off the coast of California. She also talks with CalMatters’ Julie Cart, who also covers the environment, about another project near the Salton Sea that could potentially help the state store its renewable energy.
And, in the wake of George Floyd’s death, some California lawmakers called out for more police reform. Now, with a guilty verdict for the officer who killed him, is there enough political will to make these ideas a reality? CalMatters’ Nigel Duara steps into the co-host chair this week to talk with Nicole about some of the bills California’s Black Caucus would like to see move forward this year.
