Lawsuit Filed Against California Air Resources Board
The Transportation Solutions Defense and Education Fund filed a lawsuit against the California Air Resources Board (CARB), the state agency responsible for ensuring California meets the emissions reduction targets of AB32 the global warming law, to contest the state’s plan to use Cap and Trade funds to finance the California high-speed rail project.
 
The suit alleges that CARB downplayed the harmful effects on the environment and exaggerated the potential environmental benefits of high-speed rail in its scoping plan, allowing the state to claim the bullet train will help the state meet its greenhouse gas reduction targets.  It says that CARB also failed to consider the pollution associated with “manufacturing the many thousands of tons of cement that would be needed for the project’s construction.”
