On December 1, students in the graduate class on "Regional Leadership in Air Quality" presented their research to the South Coast Air Quality Management District. The AQMD staff included executive officer Barry Wallerstein (a member of the PPD Department advisory board) and the AQMD's chief policy advisor, Peter Greenwald. The twelve students in the class had an opportunity to brief the AQMD leadership on issues at the intersection of air quality, energy generation and transmission, land use, and transportation. Recent California laws, including groundbreaking efforts in the state to regulate greenhouse gas emissions, have raised the profile of these issues.
