California’s efforts over the last decade to curb greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and combat climate change have catapulted it into the national and international spotlight. If California were a country, it would have the 36th largest population in the world and the 8th largest economy. Despite the size of its population and economy, California is among the greenest states in the U.S., and one of the most energy efficient economies in the world. It is one of the least greenhouse-gas intensive states in the U.S., with the average Californian emitting just 53 percent of the national average of per capita GHG. Professor Allison, contributor to “Bending the Curve: Ten scalable solutions for carbon neutrality and climate stability,” will discuss the progress of recent carbon neutrality efforts and potential obstacles to future carbon neutrality in California. 

Juliann Emmons Allison is a feminist scholar and Chair of the UC Riverside’s Gender and Sexuality Studies Department, whose research emphasizes political economy, air quality and energy politics and policy, and community-based social change. Allison’s current research examines the sustainability of Southern California’s warehousing industry, gender and transitions to renewable energy sources, and ecological grief. Her research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the California Energy Commission, the California Department of Transportation, the Energy Foundation and the Haynes Foundation. Recent work appears in Collabra, Journal of Poverty, Journal of Public Scholarship in Higher Education, Collaborative Anthropologies, Global Environmental Politics, the International Feminist Journal of Politics, International Environmental  Agreements: Politics, Law, and Economics, and the Journal of the Motherhood Initiative.
