It was only by four-fifths of a degree but Fort St. John established a new record high August 6th temperature yesterday. The official high reading was 30.8 degrees, breaking the old record set in 1945. However, to break today’s 1945 record we’ll need to do better than that because it is 32.8 degrees. Meantime, the B-C government has some ambitious new goals for cutting air pollution. The government’s Climate Action Team is recommending greenhouse gas emissions must be reversed and, start to fall significantly, by 2012. The team says the emissions should also be slashed, by 18 per cent below last year’s levels, by 2016. Premier Gordon Campbell says the targets will help the province achieve its previously stated aim, of cutting harmful air pollution by 33 percent, by 2020.
