(Los Angeles, CA) -- California Attorney General Jerry Brown wants the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to regulate aircraft emissions at major airports in the state.
Brown says air travel contributes to global warming and the EPA should help reduce carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases produced by jetliners.
Other states are expected to file petitions seeking similar regulations.
In October, Brown filed a petition asking the EPA to limit emissions from all ocean-going ships.
According to Brown, filing petitions and lawsuits is the only way to compel the EPA to act on these issues.
