California challenges cities to compete to cut carbon emissions. 
The California Air Resources Board thinks a little friendly
competition might inspire Californians to scale back their
driving, cut electricity use and take other steps to reduce
carbon emissions.  The agency on Thursday announced a second
round of the CoolCalifornia City Challenge, where cities compete
to see how much they can cut their emissions of greenhouse gases
that are causing climate change.  Posted.

with a complaint they have privately pressed the White House on
for months: Obama's support of expanded oil and gas production
doesn't make sense for a president who wants to reduce global
warming pollution.  Posted.

Taking California's bullet train to a greener future. 
California's high-speed rail is one of the largest public works
projects anywhere in the world. Like the Golden Gate Bridge, Bay
