Gov. Arnold passes on Poland but sends a green video
Let's see, California or Poland in December? Which would it be?
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger made his choice. And it wasn't Poznan.
Even for a U.N. Climate Change Conference, which seems to happen somewhere just about every week. What's the carbon footprint of 10,000 delegates all flying to one place to talk about fewer people flying?
Anyway, our gov's not going. But according to our immaculately-informed colleague Margot Roosevelt, Schwarzenegger did send a delegation and a video message.
"We have no intention of backing away from our historic commitment to the fight against global warming because the economy has slowed down," the governor promised the crowd.
Margot, who has one of the most environmentally-friendly desks in a newsroom that has been unofficially declared a Superfund site, has more on the governor's message and the conference, including a link to a participants' blog that anyone can peek in on.
Margot's item is over on our Greenspace blog. But don't drive there; just click here.
