His honorable Jim Dear speaks with Melissa McGinnis from Greenopolis TV about the 1000th trash truck to be ran off of liquefied natural gas, which services his community of Carson California. This momentous effort helps to keep the air clean by reducing green house gases and carbon, since the harvested gas from landfills burns at a much cleaner rate than regular diesel gas.

This is a big step for the right direction. Our society has to change for a cleaner environment not just for us but for our children and our great grandchildren as it goes on to the centuries. We act today to prepare the world for tomorrow. When we have private enterprise willing to come up with a plan like this like Waste Management has— that's what's really needed. The government can only do so much to help to frame the process and moving forward, it really takes private enterprise and individuals to change their lifestyle. I am really delighted that this is happening in Carson California and you know we're going to have a better world.

Mr. Dear thinks that this large-scale project would inspire individuals. Having it in every neighborhood in Carson, people will see that— it's like a lot of people who want to do what other people do. When they see that this is the way to recycle and to reduce your carbon footprint in individual households and when they see companies doing that, it really sets the tone.

With the reduction of carbon and greenhouse gasses, the neighbors are breathing a little bit easier today!
