The California Air Resources Board released the Proposed Strategy to Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants in April 2016. The Proposed Strategy underscores the importance reducing SLCP’s as the only way to immediately begin to reverse climate change and its impacts. It also highlights the need for increased bioenergy production to reduce both methane and black carbon emissions. It sets specific goals for methane reduction in the dairy and solid waste sectors, and highlights a number of strategies for reducing black carbon emissions from wildfire, which is the single largest source of Short-Lived Climate Pollution.
