The article discusses California's carbon cap-and-trade system which establishes a declining limit on the state's greenhouse-gas emissions. This move reportedly signifies California's commitment to reduce its carbon emissions to 1990 levels by 2020. California is said to be responsible for about one percent of global emissions and the success and failure of its environmental experiment may decide whether a national or international action on global warming will ever become a reality.
