EPIC Director Scott Anders' KPBS Interview: Reducing San Diego's Carbon Footprint
SAN DIEGO (December 7, 2009) — Today, Energy Policy Initiatives Center (EPIC) Director Scott Anders and Senior Policy Analyst Nilmini Silva-Send were interviewed by Maureen Cavanaugh, host of the KPBS show "These Days." The interview focused on two recent reports from EPIC that evaluate and recommend a range of local policy options to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the two largest sources: buildings and personal transportation such as cars and trucks. The reports, which build on EPIC’s 2008 regional greenhouse gas inventory project, estimate the potential greenhouse gas reductions and costs associated with local policies to reduce transportation fuel use, distances driven by regional cars and trucks, electric and natural gas use, and to encourage distributed solar photovoltaics.
