California's Air Resources Board has unanimously adopted a so-called "Cap and Trade" scheme to implement Assembly Bill 32, signed by former Governor Schwarzenegger in 2006. Governor Brown supports it enthusiastically, and last November, voters defeated Proposition 23, an oil-company sponsored initiative to kill it once and for all. The New York Times said last week's Board meeting "was such a well-oiled exercise in democracy and administrative procedures that the momentousness of the occasion was almost lost in the footnotes."
