California Sen. John Newsom on Climate Action

California set to be first state with extreme heat warning system under bills signed by Newsom

California is poised for the first state to have an extreme heat warning system.

The state Senate approved a bill to create an Extreme Heat Warning System. The system would notify residents that the temps are expected to reach 105 degrees or go above 109 degrees.

It gets even more complicated.

The bill also includes a definition of “extreme heat” that can raise awareness of heat waves, which are usually caused by climate change.

This is an extreme version of the heat warning system that exists in Houston, Texas.

In an interview, Newsom says he is very proud that California is leading the way on the fight against climate change.

“As I think about it, our children’s future is in peril. Every time we say in the state of Florida, ‘You have to take care of your own climate,’” said Newsom. He added, “California has had enough. There are a lot of other states who are going to have to take care of their own.”

On average, the state of California sees 4.9 inches of rain per year, the highest in the nation. The state has an extreme rain belt that spans from central California to northern Northern California, which is called the “Grapevine.”

Newsom added, “We have some severe weather conditions and we’ve got more than three months of drought in the state of California. People can see how important it is for the country to be taking climate change seriously. And California isn’t the only state where that is the case, but, quite frankly, we are the most extreme example, and we are the most vulnerable. We are in trouble.”
