Schwarzenegger Slams Bush on Climate

Reuters story:

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger of California and fellow Republican Gov. Jodi Rell of Connecticut accused the U.S. government on Monday of "inaction and denial" on global warming.

"It's bad enough that the federal government has yet to take the threat of global warming seriously, but it borders on malfeasance for it to block the efforts of states such as California and Connecticut that are trying to protect the public's health and welfare," the governors wrote in The Washington Post.

These two states and 10 others have approved plans for tougher standards than those imposed by the government to limit vehicle emissions of the greenhouse gases that contribute to global climate change.

I agree with Arnold that the fed's response to the climate crisis is malfeasance, but we can't have 50 separate policies on this subject either. The only response that will actually work is to elect someone as president who cares about the climate

Well, you'd better find a Republican, then, because none of the top-name Democrats seem to.

Sure, they can make "greener than thou" noises, but when it comes to actions, most of them are less "conservationy" than George Bush...
