There was an error working with the wiki: Code[1]

California Air Resources Board (CARB) is the "clean air agency" of the state of There was an error working with the wiki: Code[11] in the United States. Established originally as the Air Resources Board in 1967, it is known for setting extremely stringent standards for There was an error working with the wiki: Code[12].

Its stated goals are to:

Attain and maintain healthy air quality.

Conduct research into the causes of and solutions to There was an error working with the wiki: Code[13].

Systematically attack the serious problem caused by motor vehicles, which are the major causes of There was an error working with the wiki: Code[14] in the State.

The governing board is made up of eleven members appointed by the state's There was an error working with the wiki: Code[15], and the chairman is the only full-time member.

Half of the appointees are experts in professional and science fields such as There was an error working with the wiki: Code[4] region, There was an error working with the wiki: Code[16] Bay area, There was an error working with the wiki: Code[17], and the There was an error working with the wiki: Code[18], and one for other districts.

CARB's Organizational Structure

Carb has nine major divisions:CARB's Divisions

Administrative Services Division

Enforcement Division

There was an error working with the wiki: Code[5] Control Division

Mobile Source Operations Division

Monitoring and Laboratory Division

Office of Information Services

Planning and Technical Support Division

Research Division

There was an error working with the wiki: Code[6] Division

Planning and Technical Support Division

The Planning and Technical Support Division assesses the extent of California's air quality problems and the progress being made to abate them, coordinates statewide development of clean air plans and maintains databases pertinent to air quality and emissions. The Division's technical support work provides a basis for clean air plans and CARB's regulatory programs. This support includes management and interpretation of There was an error working with the wiki: Code[19] inventories, air quality data, There was an error working with the wiki: Code[20] data and of There was an error working with the wiki: Code[21].CARB's Planning and Technical Support Division

The Planning and Technical Support Division has five branches:

There was an error working with the wiki: Code[7] Branch

There was an error working with the wiki: Code[22] & There was an error working with the wiki: Code[23] Branch

Air Quality Data Branch

There was an error working with the wiki: Code[8] Branch

Atmospheric Modeling & Support Section

The Atmospheric Modeling & Support Section is one of three sections within the Modeling & Meteorology Branch. The other two sections are the Regional Air Quality Modeling Section and the Meteorology Section.

The air quality and There was an error working with the wiki: Code[9] routinely used by this Section include a number of the models recommended by the There was an error working with the wiki: Code[10].There was an error working with the wiki: Code[24] The Section also uses models which were either developed by CARB or whose development was funded by CARB, such as:

California Air Resources Board Releases GHG Emissions Reduction Plan - The California Air Resources Board released its Climate Change Draft Scoping Plan that outlines a course to reduce California’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 30% over the next 12 years. Specifically targeted transportation reductions are 60.2 MMTCO2e (million metric tons carbon dioxide equivalent), or 35.6% of the total currently specified reduction. (Green Car Congress June 26, 2008)

In September 2006, the California legislature passed AB 32, the There was an error working with the wiki: Code[33]Text of AB 32 with the goal of reducing man-made California There was an error working with the wiki: Code[34] emissions (1.4% of global emissions in 2004Brown, Susan J. "California Greenhouse Gas Emissions Trends and Selected Policy Options" (Slide presentation). California Energy Commission. http://www.energy.ca.gov/global_climate_change/04-CCAC-1_advisory_committee/documents/2004-10-07_meeting/2004-10-07_BROWN_SUSAN.PDF) back to 1990 emission levels by 2020. The legislation grants the Air Resource Board extraordinary powers to set policies, draw up regulations, lead the enforcement effort, levy fines and fees to finance it and punish violators. The technical and regulatory requirements are far reaching. Some of this sweeping regulation is being challenged in the courts. By making clean low-carbon technology more attractive, and giving California a head start on its development, it has the potential to significantly affecting the long-term prosperity and lifestyle of all Californians.

AB 1493

It is the successor There was an error working with the wiki: Code[35] to There was an error working with the wiki: Code[36] 1058, was There was an error working with the wiki: Code[37]ed on There was an error working with the wiki: Code[38], There was an error working with the wiki: Code[39] by There was an error working with the wiki: Code[40] There was an error working with the wiki: Code[41] and mandates that the California Air Resources Board (CARB) develop and implement There was an error working with the wiki: Code[42] limits for vehicles beginning in There was an error working with the wiki: Code[43] 2009. Subsequently, as directed by AB 1493, the CARB on There was an error working with the wiki: Code[44], There was an error working with the wiki: Code[45] approved There was an error working with the wiki: Code[46]s limiting the amount of greenhouse gas that may be released from new passenger cars, There was an error working with the wiki: Code[47]s and There was an error working with the wiki: Code[48]s sold in California in There was an error working with the wiki: Code[43] 2009. The automotive industry has sued, claiming this is simply a way to impose gas mileage standards on automobiles--a field already preempted by federal rules. The case is working its way through the court system. The CARB staff's analysis has concluded that the new rules will result in savings for vehicle buyers through lower fuel expenses that will more than There was an error working with the wiki: Code[50] the increased initial costs of new vehicles. Critics claim that these will only work if serious reductions are made in automobile and truck sizes.

California standard uses There was an error working with the wiki: Code[51], which means that emissions of the various greenhouse gases are weighted to take into account their differing impact on climate change (i.e. maximum 323 in 2009 and 205 g/mi in 2016 for There was an error working with the wiki: Code[52]s) Notice, the final rulemaking package was approved by OAL and filed with the Secretary of the State on September 15, 2005 -it became operative on October 15, 2005- and Final Regulation Order that There was an error working with the wiki: Code[53]s the There was an error working with the wiki: Code[54]..
