Study: CO2 pollution soars in Ariz.
Nov 13, 2009 - The Associated Press
A new study say carbon-dioxide pollution
has increased dramatically in Arizona over the past
A report released Thursday by the advocacy group
Environment Arizona says the 61 percent rise in CO2
pollution reflects a rapid period of expansion.
It found that the two biggest sources of the pollution
caused by the burning of fossil fuels were electric-power
generation and automobile exhaust.
The authors argue that the best way to cut pollution
levels is to increase the use of renewable-energy
sources, such as solar and wind, and more strictly
regulate the largest polluters, such as coal-burning
The group is seeking support for bills in Congress
that would cap carbon emissions.
