Fossen before what as you know we just passed you probably aware last week out of this committee and drinking water infrastructure act that ask that that standard be set within a year could you meet that could you meet that deadline and where are you on this critical issue we we continue to work through the process for the MCL setting as laid out by the safe drinking water act now we will look for other rate determination I believe that was published in February to comment on that and we are moving forward as far as meeting the one year deadline I don't believe that the agency can set an MCL on their own following the safe drinking water act within a year but we are working through the issues I think it's very important work through those issues but the main point I want to emphasize while we're doing all of this on themselves standard setting we end the right information that we made or proposed is we're continuing to enforce clean ups around the country we haven't we haven't forced twelve clean ups of he's asking him a communities around the country and with this is that states and local governments with another two dozen so where we see a problem in the drinking water anywhere in the country we're going after it aggressively to make sure that everyone has safe drinking water thank you you know this is a source of concern for many of us certainly those around they have military bases that you're firefighting foam and we work with the D. O. D. on this but I I just want to tell you to expect from me a very aggressive posture on this because I'm very passionate about this particular issue when it comes to safe drinking water and I encourage the EPA to B. as quick and as thorough as possible in this area the last thing I'd like to ask you about well I'd like to ask you to more things but if one of them is on the over the weekend the EPA allowed to sell through of already manufactured wood heaters that are compliant with step one as you know we've had that discussion we can't get the bill passed through this committee and as you know many people have these have the wood heaters and they'd like to sell off their inventory before they have to meet the new standards you allow them six months we know senator Carper pass offered an amendment to allow a year for the sell through but I understand your catches some criticism from from others on this where's the status of this and and how do you think this is going to be impacted certainly for personal answer to cover for retaining them as antiquated wood heaters it's important to remember that those wood heaters meet the Obama twenty fifteen standards we're not talking about standards that are twenty thirty years old by the stairs before twenty fifteen or nineteen eighty eight but these are these well here's that are currently on the other we allow the sell through for the next six months were on meet the twenty fifteen Obama standards the reason reason we increase this and even though we decided last year not to be after talking a number of people and the wood heating industry and I think it's either ninety or eighty or ninety percent or small businesses right they sell off their inventory in the March to may time frame through rebates and sales at the end of the winter season around the country and with the closure of all the stores across the country they were unable to sell that inventory and under their contracts they have to purchase they have to buy back the wood heaters are still on the shelves of of your home depot or Lowes department stores they have to buy hardware stores they have to buy back the older inventory on the shelves and that could very easily bankrupt a number of small manufacturers so we include we extended the sell through to November that's our proposal so that they can sell those at the beginning of the heat of the winter season this coming fall and try to get rid of that inventory before they start selling the the twenty twentieth my guess is twenty twenty right I appreciate that I appreciate the distinction that these are meeting the two two thousand and fifteen standard I think that's important distinction to make the other thing I would say in this current environment there were in when we're looking to protect small businesses and a lot of these wood heaters were sold in our local locally owned small businesses in certain areas of the country where people really enjoy and and use this not just first fundamental heating but for recreational you know more rest second home types of things on your on the on the creeks and and and in the hunting cabins all all across the state of West Virginia so I appreciate you looking out for the small business interests we've been trying to do that here during this call that races that I appreciate a very fully supportive of what you done I could have gone for a year but six months if that's if that gets the desired result that sounds good to me I do I'm gonna ask a question on the record on the ace role but I've run out of time thank you thank you Sir thank you senator capito senator White House Democrat from Rhode Island this is C. span radio WCS be from Washington there R.

"His show that city states regions and industries are stepping up to meet the carbon cutting targets of the 2015. Fifteen Paris climate agreement on Monday governor Jerry Brown signed a Bill requiring California to generate all its energy from renewable sources by twenty forty five Brown co hosted the summit along with former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg they sounded a defiant note against the Trump administration, which pulled out of the Paris agreement last year. Their message cities stays and industries can protect the environment. Even went the federal government won't. Joining me now to talk about the global climate action summit are UC Berkeley energy, professor Daniel Cameron and San Francisco Chronicle reporter Curtis Alexander. Welcome to you both Curtis. You have been covering the climate change summit. What do you think it accomplished this week while the climate change? It was not the Paris conference that the world had held three years ago. So it wasn't national leaders coming to the table to agree on a landmark deal to cut greenhouse gas. Emissions. What it was about was cities states and businesses and other regional actors really getting together to figure out what they could do to try to help the national efforts reduce greenhouse gas emissions. I think they talked a lot about kind of what they're doing. They showcase their efforts. And I think they're going to go home with a lot of lot of knowledge on what they can do better to try to help reduce greenhouse gases. So a bottom up approach is that effective, Dan? What is in fact, we've seen especially now with really? Really challenging politics in Washington DC that this subnational approach so-called under to MOU you the under two degree coalition. Now, it's up to two hundred and twenty some members around the world. It's more than forty percent of the global economy. It's a group of the coalition of the willing and everything from installing solar panels to investing in climate-smart, transportation and food. There's a lot you can do and these groups need to learn from each other because there is no umbrella organization except for this thing, the California's co-chairing, and the one of the other things that stood out were all the protesters thousands of demonstrators throughout the week. Why were they protesting? Well, it's a really interesting moment where environmentalists were protesting an environmental summit. And that really shows you how engaged many people are. And to what extent what we're seeing is action by those who are willing to act, but also recognition that we're not moving fast enough on many fronts, so their purchases have a really valid point. But it's in this context of these are the group who already want to get something done. So it's this mix of how far do we have to go, and how much do we need to push back against the parts of the world of the politics? That are not enabling us to go green. And it is really interesting because could because across the world governor Jerry Brown is seen as sort of a leader on climate yet. Like, you said at this conference, we had hundreds of protesters knocking at the doors, and even interrupting a few of the speakers during the sessions, but in California, the governor has approved. Additional fracking additional offshore oil drilling. And like, Dan said, there are people who just say you need to stop all new oil development because they don't feel he's anti-big oil enough despite all this other climate and environmental initiatives. That's right. But at the same time the governor signed to really landmark things on Monday to kick the summit off one is to commit California to being one hundred percent clean energy by twenty forty five. Then he followed that just a few hours later with an executive order that said we have to go to all clean energy and zero carbon in our economy overall. And once we get there by twenty five or by twenty forty five or before then we need to go carbon negative. So we need to grow more trees, we need to suck carbon out of the air. We need to give ourselves some breathing room. If you will because a lot of the world isn't going fast enough, those are landmark, but we can't leave the social Justice behind, and that's really where the protesters were focusing on Curtis. What were some of the other bills? The governor signed yesterday. He signed a whole slew of them. He has signed a lot of bills this week. I think like you said the most important was getting California on the path to being one hundred percent renewable energy by twenty forty five. But yesterday, he focused on the transportation sector, which is sort of a stubborn sector when it comes to trying to reduce greenhouse gas emissions accounts for about fifty percent of the state's greenhouse gases. What he did was he passed a number of bills that are going to encourage more people to buy electric cars. Encourage electric van pools, and one of them that stood out to me was putting standards or requirements on ride hailing companies like lift an Uber to. To make sure they're putting enough electric cars on the road since there are becoming an increasing amount of the traffic on California highways and so here in the bay area Curtis. What are some of the things at bay area cities are doing to fight climate change? Well, the first thing I think this is sort of the low hanging fruit is they're moving to buying more renewable energy. That's one of the things they're doing another thing. They're doing is trying to encourage the electrification of transportation systems to prevent cars and buses from putting out greenhouse gases. One thing that the San Francisco department environment is working on an initiative to generate zero waste in the city. And that's big because when you put trash landfills it generates methane, which is a much more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide at the summit about twenty four other cities. Join San Francisco in that initiative to try to commit to zero waste, which they probably won't do any time soon. But. It's it's a very admirable goal as a whole do the city the local initiatives. Go far enough. Do they have quantifiable goals? Many of them were they just sort of sort of, you know, paying lip-service almost to the cause what's definitely not not lip service. But it's also not far enough. And one of the features at the summit was to learn from one city to the next Singapore does something really innovative on electric vehicles having on road charging for them. So you can pay with your ez pass kind of thing. Another city has a program to invest in urban infield agriculture and one place needs to learn from the other. So that's really what the summit is getting done, and as California has met and exceeded its goals, in fact, California met it's twenty twenty goal three and a half years early. So California's doubt now down to about one point one percent of global emissions. And so this is really an effort to partner. And so I spent a lot of time this week in partnership with. If some African leaders and a particular with Chinese cities and provinces and one thing you find from that is that we do something on electric vehicles like setting a state mandate of million China turns around and says, well, we'll we'll top that. We'll do five million vehicles by twenty twenty now California's figuring out how we can up our own number, and then discovering that that brings down the cost of driving brings down urban pollution leads to ask all of these kinds of benefits one city or state won't learn from someone else does it because you just need to share that knowledge, and and you've been advising governments in China and Africa about how to cut greenhouse emissions at the local level. What are some of the projects that you've been seeing and how much success have they had some of them really dramatic some countries I've worked with for a long time. Like Kenya went from place, basically powered by diesel power and some hydro to a global leader in wind and geothermal and solar. And yet, they're still. Fighting against a potential coal plant, which ironically has support from US company GE and the Chinese government. Let's all of these places are also using phone technology mobile apps to enable these things to happen. What are they doing in that arena? So this is a fun one. Because there's about one point three billion people that access to actress at all and as solar gets cheaper as LED lights get cheaper as the batteries in your phones, get cheaper, you want to get that technology out normally have to go into a store and pay for it and give save up some money. Now, you can do it on your phone so mobile money is very trusted often more trusted than the banks in lots of sub Saharan Africa Central America in India. So you can take home these devices all the way up to televisions and freezers, but pay for it with mobile money on your phone, which they call pay as you go. So it has opened up energy access through information technology, and the effect of global warming the immediate effect anyway, you really hits poorer communities the most can you talk about that. So that's the sad story. The climate change hurts us all but the rich have a much better ability to act and to insulate themselves because they're rich. So the poor can't move quickly. And we're seeing that right now with a hurricane Florence. We've seen that with fires and droughts in Africa, and the inter inter international body, the IPC that assesses this came up with this really clear statement, and that is climate change will affect all of us. But it'll affect the poor I and most severely and Curtis without the federal government support is it possible for the US to have a major impact in fighting climate change. There was a study that came out in the run-up to climate summit this week by Yale University that suggested that cities states and businesses the regional players could fill about half the gap in the pledged emission cuts that the nation has made for Paris. So they can get halfway there. But the national government does play a considerable role. Unfortunately on the globe. Scale regional governments are filling a lot less of the gap. So it really is an issue largely for national governments. All right. Could is Alexander with the San Francisco Chronicle and also, Dan Kamin UC Berkeley energy. Professor, thanks to you. Both. Thank you. Let's turn our attention now to cannabis this week the Associated Press reported that nearly twenty percent of California marijuana products failed potency NPR detests, the primary culprit mislabeling of products concentration of THC. That's the chemical compound in marijuana that gets a person high testing showed the THC amass did not fall within ten percent of what the product labels advertised. Meanwhile, California is wrapping up its efforts to track and trace cannabis to monitor its movement through the supply chain from farms to dispensaries with us now to take a closer. Look are David downs California bureau chief dot com and just straighten spokesman for the California cannabis industry association. Nice have both of you bet. Thanks for having us Joshua with the trade group for the cannabis industry. What is your reaction to the finding that nearly twenty percent of California's marijuana products fail tests for potency, an purity, your I would say, I'm not surprised. This is an issue that our association has identified months back. I think knowing the mandate being mandated testing was coming online July first the industry should have done more to get prepared for that. They knew what the testing requirements we're going to be. But I think a lot of the challenges are landing within the testing labs. They only came online July first as well. There's no standardized mechanism right now, no standardization of testing labs, and there's not much oversight at this point. So one lab could find one finding and another lab could find could test the exact same products and come up with something else different results that is a possibility. But that also, you know, part of the conversation needs to be the different items and the different variables unique to cannabis. If a flower is exposed to too much air, it's going to change testing results..

"department environment" Discussed on KQED Radio

"This week thousands of people attended a global summit on climate change in San Francisco industry, titans such as Mark Benny off of Salesforce was there plus politicians from around the world and actor Harrison Ford. Education. Elect leaders who believe in science and understand the importance of protecting nature stop for God's sake. The denigration of science stop giving power to people who don't believe in science or worse than that. Pretend. They don't believe in science for their own self interest. The event was launched his show that city states regions and industries are stepping up to meet the carbon cutting targets of the twenty fifteen Paris climate agreement on Monday governor Jerry Brown signed a Bill requiring California to generate all its energy from renewable sources by twenty forty five Brown co hosted the summit along with former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg they sounded a defiant note against the Trump administration which pulled out of the Paris agreement last year. Their message cities stays and industries can protect the environment. Even went the federal government won't. Joining me now to talk about the global climate action summit are UC Berkeley energy, professor Daniel Cameron and San Francisco Chronicle reporter Curtis Alexander. Welcome to you both Curtis. You have been covering the climate change summit. What do you think it accomplish this week while the climate change of it was not the Paris conference that the world has held three years ago? So it wasn't national leaders coming to the table to agree on a landmark deal to cut greenhouse gas. Emissions. What it was about was cities states and businesses and other regional actors really getting together to figure out what they could do to try to help the national efforts reduce greenhouse gas emissions. I think they talked a lot about kind of what they're doing. They showcased their efforts. And I think they're going to go home with a lot of lot of knowledge on what they can do better to try to help reduce greenhouse gases. So a bottom up approach is that effective, Dan? Well, it is. In fact, we've seen especially now with really challenging politics in Washington DC, this subnational approach so-called under to Emo, you the under two degree coalition. Now, it's up to two hundred and twenty some members around the world. It's more than forty percent of the global economy. It's a group of the coalition of the willing and everything from installing solar panels to investing in climate-smart, transportation and food. There's a lot you can do and these groups need to learn from each other because there is no umbrella organization except for this thing that California's co-chairing and one of the other things that stood out. All the protesters thousands of demonstrators throughout the week. Why were they protesting? Well, it's a really interesting moment where environmentalists were protesting an environmental summit. And that really shows you how engaged many people are. And to what extent what we're seeing is action by those who are willing to act, but also recognition that we're not moving fast enough on many fronts, so their protests have a really valid point. But it's in this context of these are the group who already want to get something done. So it's this mix of how far do we have to go, and how much do we need to push back against the parts of the world, and the politics that are not enabling us to go green. And it is really interesting because could because across the world governor Jerry Brown is seen as sort of a leader on climate yet. Like, you said at this conference, we had hundreds of protesters knocking at the doors, and even interrupting a few of the speakers during the sessions, but in California, the governor has approved. Additional fracking additional offshore oil drilling. And like Dan said, there are people who just say you need to stop all new oil development. Visit don't feel he's anti-big oil enough despite all his other climate and environmental initiatives. That's right. But at the same time the governor signed to really landmark things on Monday to really kick with summit off one is to commit California to being one hundred percent clean energy by twenty forty five. Then he followed that just a few hours later with an executive order that said we have to go to all clean energy and zero carbon in our economy overall. And once we get there by twenty-five or by twenty forty five before then we need to go carbon negative. So we need to grow more trees, we need to suck carbon out of the air. We need to give ourselves some breathing room. If you will because a lot of the world isn't going fast enough, those are landmark, but we can't leave the social Justice behind, and that's really where the protesters were focusing on some of the other bills the governor signed yesterday. He signed a whole slew of them. He has signed a lot of bills this week. I think like you said the most important was getting California on the path to being one hundred percent renewable energy by twenty forty five. But yesterday, he focused on the transportation sector, which is sort of a stubborn sector when it comes to trying to reduce greenhouse gas emissions accounts for about fifty percent of the state's greenhouse gases. What he did was he passed a number of bills that are going to encourage more people to buy electric cars. Encourage electric van pools, and one of them that stood out to me was putting standards or requirements on ride hailing companies like lift an Uber to. To make sure they're putting enough electric cars on the road since they're becoming an increasing amount of the traffic, California highways and so here in the bay area Curtis. What are some of the things at bay area cities are doing to fight climate change, the first thing, I think this is sort of the low hanging fruit is they're moving to buying more renewable energy, that's one of the things they're doing another thing. They're doing is trying to encourage the electrification of transportation systems to prevent cars and buses from putting out greenhouse gases. One thing that the San Francisco department environment is working on is an initiative to generate zero waste in the city. And that's big because when you put trash landfills it generates methane, which is a much more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide at the summit about twenty four other cities. Join San Francisco in that initiative to try to commit to zero waste, which they probably won't do any time soon. But. It's it's a very admirable goal as a whole do the city the local initiatives. Go far enough. Do they have quantifiable goals, many of them or are they just sort of sort of paying lip-service almost in the cause what's definitely not not lip service. But it's also not far enough. And one of the real features at the summit was to learn from one city to the next Singapore does something really innovative on electric vehicles having on road charging for them. So you can pay with your ez pass kind of thing. Another city has a program to invest in urban infield agriculture and one place needs to learn from the other. So that's really what the summit is getting done as California has met and exceeded its goals in fact, California met it's twenty twenty goal three and a half years early. So California's doubt now down to about one point one percent of global emissions. And so this is really an effort to partner. And so I spent a lot of time this week in partnership with. African leaders and in particular with Chinese cities and provinces and one thing that you find from that is that we do something on electric vehicles like setting a state mandate of a million China turns around and says, well, we'll we'll top that. We'll do five million electric vehicles by twenty twenty. Now, California's figuring out how we can up our own number, and then discovering that that brings down the cost of driving brings down urban pollution that leads to asthma all of these kinds of benefits one city or state won't learn from someone else does it because you just need to share that knowledge. And and you've been advised governments in China and Africa about how to cut greenhouse emissions at the local level. What are some of the projects that you've been seeing and how much success have they had some of them really dramatic some countries I've worked with for a long time. Like Kenya went from place, basically powered by diesel power and some hydro to a global leader in wind and geothermal and solar. And yet, they're still. Fighting against a potential coal plant, which has support from a US company GE, and the Chinese government places are also using technology mobile apps to enable these things to happen. What are they doing in that arena? So this is a fun one. Because there's about one point three billion people without access portraits at all and as solar gets cheaper as LED lights get cheaper as the batteries in your phones, get you want to get that technology out. Normally you have to go into a store and pay for it and gift save up some money.
