An analysis by The Associated Press shows that California’s pizza steel plate will release more than 30 million metric tons of carbon dioxide by 2026, more than twice the amount released by a similar plate made in Mexico.
The analysis is the latest to highlight the increasing threat of global warming to the environment as more people around the world rely on the plates, which are often made from recycled steel.
The Associated Statesman/OregonLive analyzed the California plates and found they released about 0.02 billion metric tons in carbon dioxide emissions in 2025.
That compares to 0.04 billion metric ton emissions from the same plate made from the steel from a United Kingdom plant that was built to manufacture steel from recycled coal.
The plates are being manufactured at a plant in Orange County and the company that makes the plates is also using recycled steel from an existing plant in Mexico to make steel plates.
The California plant produces about one-third of the pizza plates sold in the United States.
The AP analyzed a sample of the plates from six restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The company said in a statement that the study was conducted using state-of-the-art, laboratory-tested equipment and was funded by the California Environmental Protection Agency.
The results will be presented at a national conference on the future of the planet and climate on Friday.
The San Francisco Chronicle newspaper reported that the pizza plate will be replaced in the city of Oakland with a new model that has been designed to withstand the heat and pressure of the Pacific Ocean.
In February, California became the first state in the country to require restaurants to install carbon capture technology on their production lines to reduce carbon dioxide.
California already requires restaurants to buy and install carbon-capture technology at all their plants.
That is to help them prevent the release of methane and other gases that contribute to global warming.
The pizza plate has become an increasingly popular and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional pizza in the U.S. and around the globe, but some analysts say it will take time for it to become a mass-market product.
Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, and when carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere, it causes global warming and affects human health.
It also has a direct impact on the planet, contributing to climate change.
“In this case, it’s not a question of how fast the pizza industry will get rid of carbon-spewing plates,” said Michael Oppenheimer, senior scientist at the Earth Institute at Columbia University.
“We know that carbon dioxide has an effect, and it has an impact on human health and on the environment.
It’s a real issue that we are going to have to deal with in the next few years.”
A study released earlier this month found that California has been the worst state for greenhouse gas emissions since 1980, when the nation had a peak in the nation’s carbon dioxide emission rate.
In that study, the University of California, Berkeley, looked at emissions from all sources and found that the state had surpassed Mexico in terms of the percentage of its emissions that came from the United Kingdom.
The study found that a pizza made in the UK releases more than 15 million metric pounds of carbon into the air each year.
The state has not been the only one to face carbon dioxide issues.
In December, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said California’s greenhouse gas pollution was the second-highest in the continental U.N. and ranked 10th in the world.
“Our analysis of global CO2 emissions shows that our economy is not meeting the emissions targets set by the Paris Agreement,” a spokeswoman said in an email to the AP.
“California is not the only state to experience this problem.
Other states have also experienced significant and continuing climate change impacts and continue to use coal and oil as a fuel source for their factories.”
The state is also one of several that are facing lawsuits for violating the Paris Climate Agreement, which requires countries to reduce greenhouse gas emission levels.
The United States, France, Germany and India have also joined California in suing the federal government over the deal.
