SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Governor Jerry Brown signed the SB-100 bill, which sets an overall 100 percent clean energy goal for California, 50 percent by 2025. 

The bill was backed by both democrats and republicans just days after a statewide report indicated that California is at high-risk for the effects of climate change. 

These effects can include more intense wildfires, periods of more intense drought and flooding, sea-level rise and severe heat-related events. 

Senator Kevin De Leon wrote the bill in hopes of protecting California as well as future generations from the effects of climate change.

"Climate change is here, he said. "It's real, it's deadly and it's extraordinarily expensive. We are building a bolder future one with a 100  percent clean energy grid; one that won't poison our children or our planet."

The signing happened as environmental, business and political leaders gathered in San Francisco for the Global Climate Summit, which will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 12. 

Brown also signed an executive order setting a target of 2045 to achieve carbon neutrality. 

"We're going to meet the Paris Agreement and we're going to continue down that path to transition our economy to zero emission, zero carbon emission and to have the resiliency and sustainability that science tells us we must achieve," Brown said.
