Climate activists in San Diego say we need to move away from the greenhouse gas and follow the lead of other cities in the state that have banned the use of it in new construction.

The majority of Californians live in homes that rely on natural gas. It's used to heat our homes, warm the water that comes out of our showers and faucets and to power our stoves.

Climate activists in San Diego say we need to move away from the greenhouse gas and follow the lead of other cities in the state that have banned it in new construction.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reporter Joshua Emerson Smith joined Midday Edition on Tuesday to discuss how city leaders and gas companies are reacting to the call for change.
