Regarding “Don’t delay cleaner air” (Letters, July 25), from a respiratory therapist regarding delaying cap and trade for fossil fuels. I too am a respiratory therapist, and I agree that we should have better air. But AB 32 and its cap and trade is only more bureaucracy and a tax that will drive more jobs away from California, while increasing what we pay for gas. AB 32 only hopes to decrease certain greenhouse gases by 25 percent! We can do that by just riding our bikes to work.
