Global warming pollutants rapidly growing in CA
Tuesday, June 20, 2006
The study finds carbon dioxide, or CO2, emissions have increased 85-percent in California between 1960 and 2001. Environment California is calling for support of state legislation that would curb emissions from a variety of sources.
Chula Vista Mayor Steve Padilla says cities and small towns can also make a difference in cutting pollution.
Padilla: Chula Vista has a long history of leading the way on everything from energy policy to land use policy to exploring energy options, we were recognized by one of only twelve entities worldwide, public and private, for our CO2 reduction plan.
The report says power plants are the biggest source of CO2 emissions, with passenger vehicles coming in second. Beth Ford Roth, KPBS Hews.
