Schwarzenegger Signs Global Warming Bill

Posted on Sep 27, 2006
From California Resources Agency

Californina today became the first state in the country to impose a mandatory cap on greenhouse gases. The new law commits the state to a 25% reduction by 2020.

L.A. Times:

California moved to the front of local government efforts to fight global warming today when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed legislation calling for a reduction of greenhouse gases.

The bill commits the state to reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases by 25% by 2020. Greenhouse gases trap heat in the atmosphere and cause global warming.

At an elaborate signing ceremony at Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay, Schwarzenegger put pen to paper, a scene he will repeat later today at a second ceremony scheduled for Pepperdine University.

“We simply must do everything we can in our power to slow down global warming before it is too late,” Schwarzenegger said.
