More interesting is chapter 8 on "impacts."
No matter what language they might have for Goal 7, they are ignoring greenhouse gas emissions. In Chapter 8 on "environmental impacts," it's mostly about wetlands and salmon, about water run-off and contamination. There's nothing about carbon dioxide. (The section on air quality also ignores carbon dioxide, and discusses carbon monoxide and ozone only. This is a legacy of a regulatory framework a couple generations old that needs desperately to be updated.)
|The section on "Environmental Impacts"|
misses the biggest one
|A section on "avoid, reduce, mitigate"|
itself avoids the central matter:
We should "avoid" and "reduce" drive-alone trips!
