California’s greenhouse gas emissions fall by less than 1% 9.6.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
California officials, determined to fight climate change, have ordered deep cuts in the state’s emission of greenhouse gases. While emissions from electrical plants fell in 2015, driven down partly by the rapid growth of large solar facilities, the amount of greenhouse gases spewed by cars and planes rose. Transportation accounted for 39 percent of the state’s emissions in 2015, making it California’s largest source of greenhouse gases. “As far as the small emissions reduction goes, if it’s due to a growing economy, we’ll take it,” said Dave Clegern, spokesman for the board, which oversees most of California’s climate-change efforts. Since peaking in 2004 at more than 489 million metric tons, California’s emissions have fallen about 10 percent, to 440 million metric tons. Gov. Jerry Brown, a frequent and fierce Trump critic, has formed coalitions with other states, countries and provinces to fight global warming.
