California Considers Tighter Air Emissions

You may or may not know that the California Air Resources Board has is considering a vote (webcast) today on controversial regulations to reduce vehicle emissions blamed for global warming. Actually, they're considering it right now.

Several states are expected to enact the same standards that California may adopt this morning. According to CNN, California is the only state that can set its own emissions regulations since it began doing so before federal standards were set. Other states must adopt federal standards or California standards.

The regulations, if enacted, require cuts in greenhouse gas emissions by up to 25 percent and other technological changes for vehicle emissions by 2009. The staff report favors a positive vote on the proposal.

I'm listening to the webcast now, and will let you know when the vote becomes final.

There's more "trouble brewing."

At about 3:20 yesterday afternoon, after many fallouts of the webcast, CARB approved the strict emission standards.
