2024 Speaker Series on California's Future — In-Person and Online
We believe in the power of good information to build a brighter future for California. Help support our mission.
Volatility was the name of the game in 2023, as drought-weary California suddenly found itself inundated by atmospheric rivers—and the changes kept coming. We look back on California’s weird (and sometimes wonderful) year in water.

California has made great strides in preparing for a drier, hotter future, but it remains a challenge to harness the bounty of wet years while also reducing flood risk. How did California’s water sector manage the unusually wet 2023 water year—and what lessons can we glean for the future?
Tropical Storm Hilary hammered Southern California on Sunday, after making a destructive run over Baja California. The damage was real, but thankfully there was no loss of life. But there are a few things we do know—or can surmise—about why this rare event occurred, and the dangers such events will pose to California now and in the future.
Record-high numbers of Californians are registering strong concerns about heat waves and flooding, while an overwhelming majority believe climate change is contributing to extreme weather events.
PPIC’s Dean Bonner and Mark Baldassare discuss our latest Statewide Survey, which examines Californians’ views on climate change and its effects, environmental policies, and other topics.
Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, Rachel Lawler, Deja Thomas
Key findings of the survey include: Most Californians think it is very important that the state take steps now to respond to climate change, though views vary across party lines. An overwhelming majority say that extreme weather events are a problem in their part of the state. A majority believe the use of electric vehicles helps address climate change; half have seriously considered getting one, and nearly one in ten have already done so.
