Environment Memo                                 Current Issues California is overly dependent on petroleum-based fuels that contribute to climate change and dirty air. The  state relies on petroleum based fuels for 96% of its transportation needs, and the transportation sector  accounts for more than 40% of California’s annual global warming emissions. California is the 12th largest source of global warming emissions California is heavily dependent on energy resources that pollute our air and harm our environment. Nearly  90 percent of the state’s electricity comes from unsustainable sources including coal, natural gas, nuclear  power and large hydroelectric dams. When transportation and heating needs are added in, California is  shown to depend on fossil fuels to meet 80 percent of its total energy needs, 40 percent coming from oil and  40 percent from natural gas.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
