Schwarzenegger says cities will lead climate change battle
Washington has abdicated its responsibility and hence the administration’s raison d’être.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger told U.S. mayors Saturday they must take the lead in battling global warming and creating an economy based on “clean” technology.
Schwarzenegger said California and other states are “not waiting for Washington” before promoting legislation to protect the environment by reducing greenhouse emissions blamed for climate change.
“Washington is just a little dot on the map. You are making up America. So we don’t have to wait for Washington to get aboard,” Schwarzenegger told the 75th annual meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, which made the environment one of its top agenda items.
Arnold is right. He and Tony, along with Michael and Ken, Angela, Nancy, Dianne, and Barbara will go down in the annals as addressing the real issue of our times, leaving George & Co. to write their own parallel fictitious version of history as they saw it from a different angle: inside the cloistered walls of the White House.
