The South Coast Air Quality Management District claims that zero-emission vehicles still must be the weapon of choice against Greenhouse Gases.

“To achieve federal clean air standards, this region has little choice but to reduce the very GHG emissions targeted by SB 375 to near-zero," the air district’s letter to the I-710 Technical Advisory Committee says. "Clean vehicle penetration far beyond levels assumed by the ARB have been identified as the most likely – perhaps only - way to do it."

Schuiling also noted that different types of cars have different GHG emissions – noting that a 2004 Toyota Prius has half the GHG emissions of a 2004 Chevy Malibu, suggesting that fleet turnover can have a big effect.

Hasan Ikhrata, is the executive director of the Southern California Association of Governments, which is charged with implementing SB 375 in the Los Angeles region. He has stated that policymakers should not rely on the idea of climate change being the reason for pursuing a more efficient urban community design.

The technical requirements of SB 375 (such creating Sustainable Communities Strategies) are designed to create communities "on the ground" that result in less driving by concentrating development around transit and parking.

Bill Fulton's recent presentation about SB 375 can be viewed online, along with other presentations from the Leonard Transportation Center Forum, May 22, 2009: "Greener California: Impacts of Senate Bill 375 and Winning Strategies for Southern California".
