FROM THIS EPISODE

At the Climate Change Summit in Paris, the major players insisted that reductions in greenhouse emissions be voluntary. The City of San Diego has taken a big step further. It has established mandatory deadlines — enforceable by law — including 100% renewable energy generation by 2035. Los Angeles and other cities will have to get in line.

Also on the program, a landlord’s accused of using Airbnb to get around rent control in a crowded market.

Tenants Sue after Landlord Rents out Apartments on Airbnb 12 MIN, 57 SEC

Carrie Kirshman lived for 21 years in LA's quaint and classic Fairfax District, protected by rent control. Then she and her neighbors were evicted under the Ellis Act, which allows landlords to get out of the rental business — as long as they stay out for five years. But, within weeks, Kirshman says her apartment was being advertised on Airbnb.

San Diego Takes the Lead against Global Warming 15 MIN, 1 SEC

Republican Mayor, Kevin Faulconer, calls it "the right thing to do." He persuaded conservative businesses it was in their interests. The City Council, controlled by Democrats, approved it unanimously. San Diego is now the largest American city to establish mandatory deadlines for reduction of greenhouse emissions. That means 100% renewable energy generation by 2035 -- enforceable by law, as we hear from Joshua Smith, environmental reporter for the San Diego Union-Tribune
