If I ever had a new aria to learn I would listen to Gedda first in order to make sure I was “doing it right.”

Superior Court Judge Timothy Taylor ruled Monday (Dec. 3) that the 2050 Regional Transportation Plan of the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) violates state law by permitting climate pollution in its environmental review. SANDAG's plan will increase greenhouse gas emissions, according to the groups, including the Sierra Club, that backed the lawsuit. As a result of the decision, SANDAG will have to make adjustments to reduce those greenhouse gas emissions. The judge expects that the case will be appealed. The plaintiffs in the suit have long argued that San Diego continues to stress auto transportation, not giving proper consideration to transit. My column of Nov. 28, "Will SD power structure accept climate change?" devotes space to the controversy and the lawsuit. It is the current column posted.
