Abstract
This Fact Sheet, prepared by the California Attorney General's Office, provides general information that may be helpful to local agencies in carrying out their duty to mitigate global warming. The measures set forth in this package are examples; the list is not intended to be exhaustive. Moreover, the measures cited may not be appropriate for every project. The lead agency must use its own informed judgment in deciding which measures it will analyze, and which measures it will require, for a given project.

Under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), local agencies have a very important role to play in California's fight against global warming. Local agencies must require feasible mitigation for global warming impacts caused by the projects they permit, and must include feasible mitigation in their own projects. By the sum of their individual decisions, local agencies are helping to move the State away from "business as usual" and toward a low-carbon future.
