Climate change action is on the ballot this November

STATEMENT FROM SAM HODDER, PRESIDENT AND CEO

Save the Redwoods League and our partners at the Committee for Clean Water, Natural Resources and Parks applaud Governor Gavin Newsom and California’s legislative leaders for delivering an essential $10 billion climate bond measure to California voters this November.

The effects of climate change aren’t waiting for better budgets. Sooner or later, we’ll all pay for its impacts. If we can invest in forest health and fire resilience, rather than paying the exponentially higher cost of catastrophic wildfire, that’s a bargain. The same is true with preventing floods, protecting coastal communities, and safeguarding against extreme heat.

The conservation community is ready and willing to support the upcoming campaign for SB 867 Safe Drinking Water, Wildfire Prevention, Drought Preparedness, and Clean Air Bond Act of 2024. Protecting and restoring the redwood forest, providing for clean water and air, protecting the land and wildlife, and preventing wildfires and flooding are priorities for California voters. All Californians benefit from sustained investment in the essential programs that build resilience to the impacts of climate change across our communities.
