California legislators voted to extend for 10 years the validity period to combat climate change initiatives of Governor Jerry brown – introduction in the state of the system of quotas and trade in quotas for emissions of harmful substances into the atmosphere. Brown believes the quota system established by the Paris agreement on climate change, an important element of efforts aimed at the survival of our civilization. Policies of the Governor in relation to the issue of climate change may become one of the main focuses of his campaign for re-election for a fifth term. Such a policy is contrary to the decision of President Donald trump to withdraw from the Treaty of Paris.

However, representatives of the movement for environmental protection has criticized the initiatives of the brown, considering it “too timid” for such a progressive state like California. They considered the proposed measures inadequate to clear the air of smog, which often occurs in some areas of Los Angeles and the Bay San Francisco and the agricultural Central Valley. Against the initiative were made by the conservatives, indicating that it will lead to an increase in the cost of living in the state where it is already one of the highest in the country.
