The article focuses on the effort of the state of California to target the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2020.

The Governor's Climate Action Team identified vehicle efficiency, biofuels, and planning measures to cut 70 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year, as part of an overall program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 174 million tons per year by 2020. Key information is presented.
