Green LA Action Plan to Fight Global Warming

This afternoon I joined the mayor and many of my colleagues from the city council at Debs Park to announce the Green LA climate change action plan. The mayor presented the comprehensive Green LA plan, which builds on the many climate change initiatives that the city council has been championing, and he set an ambitious goal: to reduce Los Angeles' citywide greenhouse gas emissions 35% below 1990 levels before the year 2030.

My staff and I have been working diligently to reduce our climate impact. We have instructed LAX to pursue energy efficient green designs as it modernizes its terminals. We have introduced legislation to make all new City buildings qualify for the LEED Silver sustainability rating. We are also championing the LAX Green Line extension, a mass transit project that could replace thousands of vehicle trips per day by LAX employees and travelers.

There is no more time to simply talk about global warming. We are a minute away from midnight on this issue, and we have a responsibility to the world and to future generations to make Los Angeles a greener city. I look forward to working with the mayor and the city council to implement new policies that will help us reduce our emissions and meet our ambitious target.
