In commemoration of this week’s Earth Day, this program features two topics:
PIONEERING GREENHOUSE GAS LIMITS. A bill announced as historic in the California legislature seeks to set new limits on global warming pollution. If passed, The Global Warming Solutions Act would establish California as the first state to limit emissions of greenhouse gases and spur investments in a clean energy economy.
Guests: Jose Carmona, Center for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Technologies, Sacramento, CA.
SMOG FEES. California’s Central Valley began forcing builders to pay fees on new developments to help clean the air in the region, one of the worst in the U.S. The fees, a first in the nation, are intended to curb urban sprawl and buy cleaner engines for school buses, among other goals.
