design handbags design handbags Global warming measure advances in Assembly



Legislation that would direct the state Department of Environmental Protection DEP to develop a greenhouse gas emissions monitoring and reduction program was released by the Assembly Environment and Solid Waste committee today by a vote of 7 to 0.



In light of the mounting scientific evidence that global warming not only is real, but is accelerating, we need to ramp up all efforts to curtail rising levels of carbon dioxide and other dangerous greenhouse gases in the state, said cosponsor Linda Stender, a Union Countybased Democrat. We have reached a critical junction regarding global warming. We can either take action now to protect public health and our environment, or we can dawdle and pay a steep price in the future for failing to act.



The measure A3301, entitled the Global Warming Response Act, aims to cut the production of six greenhouse gasses, including carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, sulfur hexafluoride, hydroflurocarbons HFCs, and polyflurochemicals PFCs. Many of these greenhouse gasses can be found in common household cleaners, waterrepellant sprays, insulation, air conditioning fluids, and even inhalers.



The legislation would direct the DEP to conduct an emissions inventory during the first year that the act becomes law and by the end of the second year to adopt a greenhouse gas emissions monitoring and reduction prog design handbags ram to stabilize New Jerseys greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020.



The measure first would direct the DEP to inventory current greenhouse gas emissions in New Jersey, and also to create inventories of the 1990 levels of greenhouse gas emissions in the state, priorities for the types of greenhouse gas emissions to be reduced, and the percentage reduction needed to achieve 1990 levels by 2020.



Additionally, by Jan. 1, 2015, the bill would require DEP to evaluate the ecological, economic and environmental factors and technological capabilities for attaining or maintaining pre1990 greenhouse gas levels by 2020 and the potential to further reduce emissions below 1990 levels.



The legislation complements a plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in New Jersey as outlined by Gov. Jon Corzine in Executive Order No. 54. In the executive order, the governor calls for adopting a proactiv design handbags e and ambitious plan for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, specifically calling for reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, followed by a further reduction of emissions to 80 percent below 2006 levels by 2050.



Greenhouse gases are produced from the burning of fossil fuels in industrial facilities and motor vehicles. Scientists are increasingly linking the rise of atmospheric gases and temperatures to current and future global climate changes. Just this month, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change concluded with at least 90 percent certainty that human emissions of greenhouse gasses, rather than natural variations, are warming the planets surface at an increased rate.



If the law is enacted, New Jersey design handbags could become the second state in the country to require by law significant reductions in the levels of greenhouse gasses produced by human activities, commerce, transportation and industries like power plants and oil refineries. One other state, California, signed similar legislation into law in September 2006.
