January 2007 - In keeping with its historical role as an environmental trendsetter, California has become the first state in the nation to mandate comprehensive reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and take specific steps to reduce directly the amount of carbon emitted into the atmosphere from fuels and manufacturing facilities. And, it is anticipated that the federal government will adopt a similar but perhaps less ambitious program in the not too distant future.
