As California lawmakers struggled this week to address an apparent new normal of epic wildfires, there was an inescapable subtext: Climate change is going to be staggeringly expensive, and virtually every Californian is going to have to pay for it.

In the final week of August—just before the Legislature agreed to spend $200 million on tree clearance and let utilities pass on to their customers the multi-billion-dollar costs of just one year’s fire damage—the state released a sobering report detailing the broader costs Californians face as the planet grows warmer.

California is on track to meet or surpass Gov. Brown’s earlier goal of 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles (ZEV) by 2025. But EV infrastructure challenges could prevent the state from meeting his latest goal of 5 million ZEVs by 2030, says a report prepared for the think tank Next 10.

Inadequate EV infrastructure could slow down adoption, says F. Noel Perry, founder of Next Ten, which provides information about issues that affect Californians.

“But by 2040, ZEVs could be as ubiquitous as smartphones,” he says.

Buoyed by an exceptional sales year in 2017, the state’s electric vehicle market will continue to grow this year and will reach 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles by 2025, an earlier target set by Gov. Jerry Brown.

Even though there are only about 340,000 zero-emission vehicles in California today, the state is on par to reach its goal of 1.5 million by 2025.

This is according to a new report by the group Next 10. “The range of electric vehicles continues to go up and up,” said Noel Perry with the public policy think tank. “And the number of choices that consumers are finding in the showrooms is also going up.”

California is on pace to exceed its goal of 1.5 million electric cars on the streets by 2025, according to a new report from public policy think tank Next 10.

Nearly 350,000 electric vehicles have been sold in the state, and 2017’s growth rate in sales was almost 30% higher than 2016’s rate, the report found. Researchers credited reduced battery costs, lowering the overall price tag of the vehicles, and strong demand worldwide as key drivers of the increase in sales.
