San Francisco Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi [Green Party], who champions many city-based green initiatives, most notably the ban on plastic bags in San Francisco, spoke at City Hall on May 27 where Greenpeace presented a new report that showed the green-leaning state of California is still a leading emitter of global warming pollution. After the press conference, the organizers marched over to the office of House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi to deliver 30,000 petitions urging Congress to implement stronger measures to prevent global warming.

Calling the situation urgent, Mirkarimi gives a rallying cry to Californians to reduce their carbon footprint. California is the poster child for what is not going right in terms of carbon emissions, the Supervisor said. “It is our responsibility socially, culturally, philosophically, feduciarily and environmentally that we lead the pack.”
