ABSTRACT
This article reports that California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's bold but vague pledge to cut greenhouse gas emissions in his state by 80 percent by 2050 further evinces the dissatisfaction felt by some Americans and local governments about the federal government's response to global warming. Business and industry leaders would be wise to recognize the writing on the wall represented by Schwarzenegger's ambitious plan, coupled with the growing number of regional and local programs aimed at addressing the greenhouse gas issue.
