Our relationship started about a month ago when we spent an evening together carpooling to a UCLA workshop on communication climate change that we both participated in. We covered: global warming, nuclear power, clean air, smart growth, globalization and the environment. But I say it is because the money we spend there cannot be spent on fixing the environment. Number two, we’ve made a terrible mess of the environment there.

ARB: California not tracking to meet required GHG reductions due to transportation; significant changes in communities and systems required

Green Car Congress

While overall, California has hit its 2020 climate target ahead of schedule due to strong performance in the energy sector, meeting future targets will require a greater contribution from the transportation sector. The Sustainable Communities and Climate Protection Act of 2008, Senate Bill (SB) 375, was passed into law in 2008. SB 375 recognizes the critical role of integrated transportation, land use, and housing decisions to meet state climate goals.

Disadvantages of electric vehicles are associated with their production (amount and composition of materials), the required resources including water-usage, as well as adverse effects on the environment (acid impact, particulates). It is important that climate policy is neutral in terms of technology; in other words that it sets climate protection goals without stipulating the technologies to be used to achieve them.

Green Car Congress

In a new paper published in the journal Climatic Change , Dr. John DeCicco of the University of Michigan School of Natural Resources and Environment posits that attempting to regulate fuels using a lifecycle analysis (LCA)-based approach—as is currently done by California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard and the US Renewable Fuel Standard—is inappropriate and ultimately unworkable as far as environmental effectiveness is concerned.

Switzerland’s top ranking reflects strong performance across most issues, especially air quality and climate protection. In general, high scorers exhibit long-standing commitments to protecting public health, preserving natural resources, and decoupling greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from economic activity. Nevertheless, serious data gaps limit the ability to measure results—and particularly changes in performance—on a number of important issues.
