CALIFORNIA ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY ACT
The People of the State of California, ex rel. Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr., v. County of San Bernardino. San Berardino County Superior Court. CV-700329. Petition for Writ of Mandate. April 13, 2007. AND: Settlement Agreement between the County of San Bernardino and the People of the State of California. August 21, 2007.
[“San Bernardino County will be forced to measure how much it contributes to global warming and set targets to begin cutting its greenhouse gas emissions in the next 2 1/2 years, according to a legal settlement. The case had opened a new front in the battle against climate change, which has so far been dominated by efforts to regulate power plants, industrial factories and vehicle tailpipe emissions. The settlement applies only to unincorporated areas of the county and to government operations, not to the county's fast-growing cities.” Los Angeles Times (August 22, 2007) 1.]
