FROM THIS EPISODE

Governor Schwarzenegger and Mayor Villaraigosa want to be warriors against global warming, but that's easier said than done. Going green means getting people out of their cars, but the Governor is cutting funds for public transit and the Metropolitan Transit Agency is raising fares.  We talk about contradictions in public policy.

Main Topic 'Green' Governor's Budget Cuts Threaten Public Transit

Since last year, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been getting international news coverage as America's number one warrior in the fight against global warming. Today Mayor Villaraigosa announced what he called "the most ambitious climate change plan by a major American city."  Both want to reduce greenhouse gases by getting drivers out of their cars, but the Governor's latest budget cuts funding for public transportation, and the MTA is about to raise fares significantly on buses and subways. Aslo, whatever happened to statewide high-speed rail?
