California Adopts Innovative Cap-and-Trade Legislation 

Late Thursday the Air Resources Board unanimously approved cap-and-trade regulations as part of an on-going effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions which are contributing to climate change.  This landmark set of air pollution controls is the first in the nation to be implemented at the state level.  The regulations were originally brought to the board in 2008, and have undergone extensive refinement admidst major opposition from big business.


Cap-and-trade is the centerpiece of AB 32, California's historic climate change law that mandates a reduction in carbon pollution to 1990 levels by 2020. Beginning in 2013 the state's largest carbon emitters will be required to meet the caps or buy credits if they cannot.

Healthy & Eco-Friendly Halloween Treat Choices
As preparation for the street scene of zombies, ghouls, ghosts, princesses, and along with a full array of nightly creatures, healthy choices are needed as an option to satisfy the oncoming of trick or treaters. With obesity on the rise, waste from fun-sized packaged candies, and products made in sub-par working conditions, there is a much better way to enjoy the holiday than passing out the 'normal' spooky treats. 

1. Granola Bars   

2. Art Supplies

3. Spare change

4. Juice or Milk boxes 

5. Fair Trade Candy

6. Honey Sticks

7. Dried Fruit Snacks 

8. Toys that increase activity (ex: jump ropes & hacky sacs )
