April 3rd, 2020 | by Jo Borrás

Last month, Lucid Motors quietly took a pre-production Lucid Air electric sedan on a 400-mile (643 km) drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles.

Los Angeles’ Zero Emissions Roadmap To 2028

November 26th, 2019 | by Susanna Schick

An easy promise in a city with so much existing Olympic Infrastructure. But will the Olympians be able to breathe? Will Los Angeles, America’s manufacturing hub, be forced to shut down factories (and the ports!) for weeks preceding the Olympics in order to ensure adequately clean air? Or will this not be enough?

How Can We Help Those Affected By The California Wildfires?

October 31st, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Every year it seems that California has these insane wildfires that are making people and animals homeless. This year is no different, except it seems worse. Every day, there seems to have been a new fire reported. CNN just reported that 26,000 people have been evacuated due to the Easy Fire. This wildfire has burned at least 1,300 acres and could jump Highway 23. Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayoub told CNN at a news conference that there were intense firefighting conditions. They actually had to ground fixed-wing aircraft because of the high winds, with gusts up to 65 miles an hour. For those who are unaware, that's almost the wind speed of a Category 1 hurricane
