ABSTRACT
The article focuses on California's new law requiring a 24 percent cut in industrial carbon-dioxide emissions by 2020. According to scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), the legislation will have only a small impact on global climate. However, the author suggests that the symbolic impact of the law will be huge. Comments from NCAR research Bill Collins are included.
