Another ambitious clean air goal for California

California has introduced tough new emissions standards with the goal of cutting greenhouse gas emissions by a third by 2025.  The California Air Resources Board require that one-in-seven of new cars sold in the state in 2025 be an electric or other zero-emission vehicle. Such a lofty goal comes at a time when the state is struggling to against massive debts and a faltering effort to introduce high speed rail between Los Angeles and San Francisco.
