In 2017 we reduced emissions by 1.15%, and it's forecast that we need to op that to 4.51%/year. If not, we won't hit our 2030 goal until 2061, and the 2050 goal could be as much as 100 years late. OTOH, we hit the 2020 goal four years early.

PEV/FCEV vehicles accounted for 1.1% of California's fleet in 2107, 1.5% in 2018, and should hit 2% by the end of this year.

Wildfires really blew our emissions targets.
