Sierra Club Challenge to California Warehouse Facility Included Allegations of Failure to Consider Greenhouse Gas and Energy Impacts. Sierra Club filed a lawsuit in California Superior Court claiming that the City of Fontana did not comply with the California Environmental Quality Act when it approved the Southwest Fontana Logistics Project, which involves development of two industrial warehouse buildings totaling approximately 1.6 million square feet on 73.3 acres. Sierra Club asserted, among other things, that the City failed to adequately analyze potential greenhouse gas emission impacts and failed to consider or adopt feasible mitigation measures for significant greenhouse gas impacts. The petition alleged that the City failed to require sufficient analysis of the project’s energy consumption and transportation energy impacts and failed to demonstrate that the project would take steps to reduce dependency on fossil fuels.
