The article reports that despite political pressure to abandon the effort, seven Northeast states have agreed to take action to reduce global warming pollution from power plants. The governors of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and Vermont announced in mid-December the creation of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative to develop state rules to establish the first mandatory cap-and-trade program for carbon dioxide emissions in the country. National Wildlife Federation (NWF) and its affiliates in the Northeast convened a summit last fall to map out a strategy for building support for regional action to curb carbon emissions. A federal judge recently granted NWF and its co-plaintiffs their request for an injunction to increase the amount of water spilled over dams on the Columbia and Snake Rivers during the late spring and summer salmon migrations.
