Report Highlights Pittsburgh's Global Warming Solutions and Pennsylvania's Shortcomings

PennEnivronment released a new report today that details more than 20 examples of programs being used to reduce global warming pollution. Pittsburgh's commitment to "green buildings" and improved commuter transit between Harrisburg and Philadelphia via AMTRAK were the two Pennsylvania solutions highlighted. PennEnvironment spokesman Nathan Willcox says Pennsylvania is improving its global warming solutions and he hopes that the governor will announce a comprehensive global warming plan for the state. Despite improvements, Pennsylvania still produces more global warming pollution than every other state except California and Texas. One reason for that is the fact that Pennsylvania is a leading exporter of electricity.
