What is cap-and-trade?
California's cap-and-trade program, that began on January 1st, 2013, is a crucial part of Assembly Bill 32 (AB 32), the state's Global Warming Solutions Act that commits to statewide Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions reductions to 1990 levels by 2020, a 15% reduction from "business as usual". With cap-and-trade, the state sets a cap to limit emissions and auctions off allowances. Companies that keep their emissions below the cap can "trade" emission credits to those companies exceeding their limit. 

How will cap-and-trade revenue be spent? 
The revenues from these auctions will be used to reduce GHG emissions and, to the extent feasible, achieve co-benefits such as job creation, air quality improvements, public health benefits, improved transportation, and forest health. 

Why does this matter to the Sierra?
Communities around the state are organizing to apply for the various pools of cap-and-trade funding. SBC is working to ensure that rural communities in the Sierra and elsewhere remain eligible for this funding. 

Check out Kerri Timmer's cap-and-trade blog post on the SBC website to learn more!
