CA Environmentalists: Put Climate Change Warning Labels on Gas Pumps
If a group of San Francisco environmentalists get their way, California residents could be reminded of global warming every time they go to a gas station.
One member of the group says the warning label would be aimed at getting people to change their behavior.
The label has white on black writing, topped off with "Warning" in bold on an orange background.
The text reads, "The state of California has determined that global warming caused by greenhouse gases poses a serious threat to the economic well-being, public health, natural resources and the environment of California."
The Bay Area group is pitching the idea to local government. Gas station owners and oil companies would likely fight a ruling in favor of the warning labels.
