‘Hasta La Vista, baby’ to greenhouse gases

This article illustrates how in the U.S. individual states do not have to wait for the federal government to instate sanctions to preserve the environment. Florida Governer Charlie Crist has signed an agreement with Britain and Germany to make a greater emphasis on pollution reduction in hopes of complying with the Kyoto Protocal. California has already made great strides in becoming environmentally friendly as well. Though we hope that the federal government will eventually “wake up” and create better controls, we as citizens to not have to wait. We can call upon our local government and household by household, city by city, state by state, we can make a difference.

    I agree!!!
    The American people can make a difference at the polls. Elected officials rely on voters to get into office. Everyone counts!!!!
    Call your local city / state office and voice your concerns!! Get the right people elected in an effort to have greater access to goverment and the policymaking process! LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!!!!!!!!!

    Just to add some more links to this discussion of the states and cities leading the way in the U.S. (and moving it away from a Rock-The-Vote music video) there’s been a lot of discussion lately of the dream team of Schwarznegger and Bloomberg and how much work the two of them are doing from their opposite coasts.
    At the bottom are some links that discuss this relationship more.
    I just find it interesting how much political captial both of these men are gaining from their positions on climate change.
