A day after he was caught driving around LA in a 13mpg Dodge Challenger, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was back at the podium highlighting California’s environmental initiatives and the future of clean tech. The former actor paid a surprise visit to the 2008 Solar Power International conference in San Diego acknowledging the tough economic times but saying that they’re one of the reasons we need to focus on solar and the environment. “We should not listen to those who say [that] should take a back seat,” he said “That’s just plain wrong.”

“You know something’s going on when Congress gets involved,” he continued. “I was so happy that they finally got their act together in Washington. … It’s about time and it will be great for the industry and great for the nation. When you look on the map, we’re [California] a small place, but when it comes to the influence that we have, we’re more like a continent. We’re going full speed ahead and showing the country how it’s done.”

Schwarzenegger championed the solar industry, proclaiming that it cannot be stopped and that one day, he hopes ever warehouse roof has photovoltaic panels. His enthusiasm was so great, that he said it won’t be long before he returns driving a “solar-powered Hummer.” Ugh.

Arnold — before we talk about that Hummer, can you please do something about the extensive private jet travel and choice in road transportation?
