California’s advocates for fuel economy standards and zero-emission vehicle mandates should toughen their rules, according to a non-profit that said road emissions have undercut the state’s efforts to reduce pollution.

TO ANYONE WHO believes environmental regulation is poison for profits, California must be infuriating. The state’s pollution policies rarely wilt its perennially blooming economy. For the past nine years, a Golden State-centric think tank Next 10 has been releasing its California Green Innovation Index. The results this year show a continuing trend: For two and a half decades, California’s GDP and population have continued to rise, while per capita carbon dioxide emissions have stayed flat.

More than $9 billion and 41,000 jobs have been added to the Inland economy as a result of California’s climate change initiatives, a new study found.

And the indirect effect of that spending supported more than 73,000 jobs and $14.2 billion in economic activity in the Inland Empire from 2010 to 2016, according to the study commissioned by Next 10.

California's clean energy programs, including cap-and-trade, have helped the Inland Empire's economy more than they've hurt — that's the conclusion of a new study from UC Berkeley and the public policy organization Next 10. The state's cap-and-trade program aims to reduce carbon emissions over time by giving polluters, primarily oil refineries and power utilities, an incentive to reduce their emissions. Those companies buy and trade allowances to emit carbon. Money from the program goes into a special fund that pays for transportation, environmental and housing projects.
