The article reports on the environmental efforts of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. He signed into law the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006/AB 32, which places an economy-wide cap on greenhouse-gas emissions and requires a reduction of emissions in California to 1990 levels by 2020. He also introduced the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) in January 2007, which utilizes enforceable standards, market competition, and flexible compliance to reduce emissions at the lowest cost and in the most consumer-friendly ways.
