California - Dreaming of Green

In a blog last week (US Commitment on Greenhouse Gas Reductions?) I pointed out that the states are ahead of the federal government in the US in driving green policies. I singled out California, which leads the way with CARB, which is developing regulations to reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020.

They’re not having it all there own way, though. According to Reuters, on Friday the Bush administration rejected California's bid to set its own tailpipe emissions standard to reduce global warming. The laws the state wanted to introduce would have forced car makers to achieve higher fuel mileage from next year, reducing emissions. Apparently there were 18 other states queuing up to adopt the same legislation.
What can you say?
