The Coalition for Clean Air does not endorse a cap-and-trade system in the implementation of AB 32, California’s greenhouse gas emissions law. The coalition believes that a headline on its commentary (“Cap-and-trade is the key to California’s greenhouse gas law,” Capitol Weekly, Nov. 6) suggested erroneously that the coalition does, in fact, support cap-and-trade. This is the coalition’s position: The Coalition for Clean Air does not believe that a cap-and-trade program is key to California’s greenhouse gas law. We believe that should California implement a cap-and-trade program, the State must take the necessary steps to protect communities that are already overburdened or heavily impacted by air pollution.”
