Reducing Emissions at the Ports

Hosted by

The Ports of LA and Long Beach generate billions for Southern California's economy.  They're also the biggest fixed source of pollution. But after years of pressure from surrounding communities, they agreed to clean up their act, and it's paying off. The clean truck program is actually ahead of schedule, and cancer-causing diesel particulates have been cut by 72 percent. We hear how that happened, what it means for public health and how much more needs to be done. Also, wind farms, the Endangered Species Act and the Golden Eagle. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, the debt ceiling, the President and next year's campaign.
