Some people may still not be convinced that global warming is real, but California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger isn’t taking any chances. He and the Democratic governors of Arizona, New Mexico, Oregon and Washington have just signed a global warming accord for their region and are even encouraging Canada and Mexico to take part as well.

“California, if you look at the globe, it looks like a little spot. But the power that we have – passing laws to clean the environment – goes all over the world,” he said.

“The idea is not just to clean California, but to also inspire other states and other countries to go in the same direction. It’ll put the federal government on notice – why don’t you do a little more to fight global warming?”

Now isn’t it nice when everybody would just get along? One of the most notable things about this agreement is that it’s a joint effort made by Democrats and Republicans, an important detail given the fact that the government hasn’t been too keen to address global warming. The article also goes on to say that leaders in Canada are already working on environmental initiatives with California and New Mexico.
