Recently, my attention has been drawn to California. Yet again, this Western state is pushing the boundaries of conventional views and stale ideas. This particular development has been somewhat expected since the early days of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s governing of California and his solid determination to terminate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. He turned the Golden State into a flagship fighting against global climate changes, which started the rising wave of green energy and emission reduction. This wave spilled over into its neighboring states and spread throughout the whole nation. In some states, it solidified and enhanced already existing trends; in others, it spawned completely new programs and undertakings.
