On the Streets: Thousands participated in the March for Science (LA Times)

Good Plans: The second annual report of the sustainability plan for the City of Los Angeles shows we are making great strides.

Power to the People: LA County created a lower-cost alternative that allows Southern California Edison customers to choose renewable power. (Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl’s op-ed on the subject; LA Times story)

“…Californians know a good thing when they see it. We want green power at good prices and jobs within a new local green economy…. – Sheila Kuehl

Right On, Renewables: LA is among the cities charging ahead with commitments to move to renewable energy sources.

“We have the power to help fight climate change. Cities often own the power plants. We determine the building codes. That’s why we have committed to going coal-free at our Department of Water and Power by 2025, and to planning a path to 100 percent renewable energy….” – Mayor Eric Garcetti

Clean Air Rules: California’s Air Resources Board issued a guide aimed at lowering air pollution exposure risks near busy highways.
