Examining The Effects Of Climate Change On Barrio Logan

GUEST:

Diane Takvorian, member, California Air Resources Board

Transcript

The California Air Resources Board is holding a public workshop Thursday in Barrio Logan to gather input on how residents are affected by climate change.

“These public workshops are an acknowledgement that our communities are hit first and worst by the harmful effects of climate change and air pollution,” Diane Takvorian, executive director of Environmental Health Coalition and member of the Air Resources Board, said in a statement. "It's critical that residents share their stories at this meeting and that policy makers in Sacramento hear their voices.”

Barrio Logan Public Workshop

When: Thursday, 6 p.m.-8 p.m.

Where: Cesar E. Chavez Campus, San Diego Continuing Education

The Air Resources Board is holding 15 workshops in low-income communities across California this month to inform the next update to the overarching document that will help the state meet its greenhouse gas reduction goals.

The California Global Warming Solutions Act, or AB 32, requires the state to curb greenhouse gas emissions to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030.

Takvorian discusses the unequal impacts of climate change on KPBS Midday Edition on Thursday.
