SAN DIEGO (September 10, 2018) University of San Diego (USD) School of Law Adjunct Professor and Assistant Director of the Energy Policy Initiatives Center, Nilmini Silva-Send, was contracted by the city of Escondido to author a greenhouse gas inventory report and it is now available! The city will use her findings as a guide to help fulfill their climate action plan commitment (Assembly Bill 32 - California Global Warming Solutions Act).

Professor Silva-Send’s 26-page report discloses that automobiles are the leading source of greenhouse gas emission - at 53% from on-road transportation. The Coast News caught up with her this past July at the launch of the Climate Action Plan workshop where she commented, “This emissions predominance by the automobile sector is consistent with other cities across San Diego County and Southern California in general.”
