We’ve all heard a lot recently about carbon footprints and how they can be redueced through careful monitoring of pollution sources. Now at last it seems that San Francisco is having some success in cutting down on the city’s carbon footprint. San Francisco has cut greenhouse gas emissions by 5 percent from 1990 levels and is on track to meet its goal of a 20 percent reduction in four years Perhaps the city will even exceed that goal. This is good news for all of us. During recent weeks we’ve been seeing on the media the grim effects of pollution on the air quality of Beijing even as they clean up the city for the Olympics. San Francisco’s pollution issues are far different from those in Beijing, but no place is immune to these problems. Let’s celebrate the progress we have made during the last few years and continue to push forward. This is one battle that deserve everyone’s support.
