The author discusses the environmental policies of California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. He describes Schwarzenegger's vetoes of environmental bills, his firing of the head of the Air Resources Board (ARB), and his decision to not defend a ban on road-building in national forests. The author believes that despite these actions, Schwarzenegger's environmental policies are sound, including his support for laws that cap greenhouse gas emissions, fund solar panels, and standardize carbon fuel.
