It's not just about ageing skewing the death rate higher in the future, it's about medical improvements in general, particularly vaccination and antibiotics, which skewed death rates across the board; there would have been a dip in death rates around the 1960's/1970's which consequently introduces an equivalent peak around about now.

It has lots of pretty pictures...

But interesting parts:
Page 19 - pie chart of emissions inventory - largest segment is transportation, 55%, so needs most attention.
Page 37 - plan of action is to get 25% of transport done via public transport by 2035... in California... which has 840 cars per 1000 people...

Good luck with that.
