California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger today said that the state will sue the US Environmental Protection Agency if the agency acts too slowly on the waiver required for the state’s implementation of its greenhouse gas regulations. (Earlier post.)
The governor was discussing alternative energy and climate change at the Milken Institute’s 10th Anniversary Global Conference.
The biggest challenge is to convince the federal government to join that movement and to recognize that...we have to become a model and a perfect example for the rest of the world.
We have been picking up where the federal government left off, and it has been a challenge.
...if we don’t see quick action from the federal government [on granting our waiver], we will sue the US EPA.—Governor Schwarzenegger
