Arnie gets serious about global warming

arnoldgv1Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is making news again. He has ordered a plan coverning more than 50 strategies for the reduction of greenhouse gases in California beginning in 2010 with a goal of 25 percent reduction by 2020.

The plan requires companies keep track of their greenhouse emissions and report them to the state. It also includes an idea for creating a market in which emission credits could be traded between sources, to give businesses some flexibility and with a suggestion to impose a surcharge on gasoline to help pay for research into clean fuels.

It is specially noteworthy as he is bringing the plan at the cost of his career as much of his vote banks come from the business sector.
