For sustainable climate policy, California needs a balanced approach

Monday, June 5, 2017

As excerpted from the Daily News:

 

"I have been and will continue to be an environmental justice advocate and an advocate for the health of my community. I grew up in Pacoima, an area home to working-class families who live next to freeways, an aging airport and retired landfills, and whose children go to school next to power plants. I remember as a kid how my school would cancel recesses because of bad smog and poor air quality.

These memories should never become a reality for the children of our great state. Air pollution in California is without question a problem, particularly for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged, and we must address it."
