California’s Climate Action Team intends to release this spring final guidance detailing plans to address heat-related health risks associated with climate change. The Climate Action Team, a partnership of 14 state agencies that manage California’s efforts to address global warming, will accept comments on a draft version of the guidance through December 31. August 31 interim guidance presented 24 recommendations, including promoting heat-resilient communities, improving heat preparedness and emergency response, expanding research on extreme heat in the state, expanding urban greening and green infrastructure, restoring urban streams, and using lighter-colored porous materials for pavement and roofing. The draft plan also recommends that the Natural Resources Agency attempt to keep air conditioned cooling centers running even when extreme heat strains the power grid.
