WINTERS, Calif. - California Governor Gavin Newsom delivered an Executive Order pertaining to the environment and climate change during his Wednesday noon briefing.

The order directs state agencies to deploy a number of strategies to store carbon in the state’s natural and working lands and remove it from the atmosphere. The order also sets a goal to conserve 30 percent of the state’s land and coastal water by 2030 to fight species loss and ecosystem destruction.

Newsom says California is the first state in the nation to pledge to conserve 30 percent of land and coastal water by 2030, joining 38 countries in commitment to conservation.

The press briefing is embedded in this story. The location of the Governor's declaration was in Sierra Orchards in Winters.
