Hawaii may become the first U.S. state with climate change warnings on all gas pumps

Bills have been introduced in the state of Hawaii Senate and House requiring warning labels on all gas pumps, providing consumers with information about the climate and health effects of burning fossil fuels. Senator Mike Gabbard comments: “What better way to help educate people on this looming threat, than by setting our beautiful island paradise as an example?”

In fall 2021, eco-labels with climate impact rating became mandatory on fuel dispensers and charging stations all across Sweden. A few months before that, climate and health warning labels were placed on all gas pumps in Cambridge, MA. These are the world’s first labelling schemes of this kind.
