Does the Governor Walk the Green Talk? At the United Nations conference on climate change today, Governor Schwarzenegger said it’s time for rich and poor nations to resolve their differences, get beyond the Kyoto protocols and take action to solve global warming. He said that California is “on the cutting edge of what is to come,” with efforts that are “revolutionary… historic and transformative.” He said the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards are “beyond anyone else’s dreams.”
Going Green without Guilt From the covers of Newsweek and Outside to a heavily covered speech today in Washington, Governor Schwarzenegger is pushing a new kind of environmentalism. At Georgetown University, claiming that environmentalism is at a "tipping point," he advocated that people work for more fuel-efficient forms of transportation rather than give up Hummers or private planes. He compared the evolution of environmentalism to that of body-building, which once was seen as the province of "weird fanatics" working out in gyms that were like dungeons. Can there be environmentalism without sacrifice?
