      In California, support for fighting climate change is both broad and urgent. Wildfires are destroying our communities. The rising ocean is beginning to flood our coast. Shifting weather patterns threaten many of the natural wonders that put us on the map, from the sequoias of the Sierra to the snows of Shasta.

      But Californians have struggled to translate our desire to stop or mitigate climate change into real action and sustained progress. And we have yet to consider all the ways that pursuing this fight will reshape our communities and regions in economy, in culture, and especially in governance.

      As the 50th anniversary of Earth Day approaches, it is time to dig more deeply into the details of the fight against climate change. How can California and its communities make more progress in the fight, achieving not just reductions in greenhouse gases but also profound changes in how we live? What sort of governance improvements do we need locally, regionally, or statewide to succeed? Is the fight against climate distracting us from other problems—like poverty, housing and education—or can the fight help address other problems? And what could be the unintended consequences and challenges for our government and our everyday lives?
