Interview With Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (Video)

Future360’s Sarah Backhouse recently attended the UCLA Institute for Environment and Sustainability panel discussion on Green Cities (one video from that is here). While there, Sarah landed an interview with Antonio Villaraigosa, the super green mayor of Los Angeles. Here’s a video of the interview:

If you want a text summary, or just want some of the facts written out for you so that you can copy and paste them elsewhere, here’s an excerpt from Future360’s summary:

“Villaraigosa signed the Kyoto Protocol and the city now boasts greenhouse gas emissions 28% below 1990s levels. Los Angeles is powered by 20% renewables and is working to get off coal by 2025. The city uses the same amout of water as it did in the 1970s, and it recycles 76% of waste.”

For more text on the matter from Future360, check out the full summary.
