Goleta Looks to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions


Goleta wants to reduce its greenhouse-gas emissions by 11 percent by 2020 and by 26 percent by 2030, under the city’s Climate Action Plan approved by the City Council 5-0 on Tuesday; the city started working on the plan in 2007 after the state passed AB 32, which calls for strong reductions by 2020. In 2007, the city produced 325,532 metric tons of carbon dioxide, mostly from buildings and cars; by 2030, that figure will jump to 429,295 metric tons. Ideas outlined to slash the emissions include more forms of alternative transportation and less water use.
