Sanders Joins Nationwide Effort to Combat Global Warming
Friday, October 27, 2006
The U.S. Mayors Climate Protection Agreement urges cities to follow the Kyoto Protocols. Those protocols call for a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. The federal government has refused to endorse them. Sanders says, the city already has policies that promote energy efficiency and use of alternative energy.
Sanders: The agreement asks us to increase the use of clean, alternative energy, recover landfill gas for energy production and support the use of waste-to-energy technology. We’re doing all of those.
Sanders says San Diego has significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions through changes in energy and water conservation and waste disposal. But he says the city needs to do more to meet the Climate Protection Agreement goal of 15 percent. Ed Joyce, KPBS News.
