How Big Could This Be?

If California converted an area the size of the subsided lands in the Delta into carbon farms, the benefits every year could be about the equivalent of:

  • Changing from standard lightbulbs to compact fluorescents in all California households
  • Turning all SUVs in California into small hybrids
  • Turning off all residential air conditioners in California
