The Partnership for a Green City -- Metro Gov't, UofL and the Jefferson
Co. Public Schools -- released its
Climate Action Report.  It was written by
members of their staffs and others, including Louisville CAN.

The report contains Louisville's most comprehensive inventory of its
greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  With most industrial combustion of coal and
natural gas omitted for a lack of publicly available data,
Louisville emitted
27 tons of GHGs per person in 2006
!

Implementing the report's 174 recommendations (pp 95-109) would cut
GHGs emissions, save money, create green jobs, improve community
livability and help to repair our economy.  However, commitments to
implementing its recommendations has been weak and vague.  

Ask Mayor Fischer, UofL President Ramsey and Superintendent Donna
Hargens what they commit to do, when.

The USEPA recently proposed new Clean

rulings, experts beli
eve the rules will withstand the
inevitable legal challenges.  Read more
