Arnold Schwarzenegger pumps up California’s clean energy debate

By Chris Nichols, Politifact.

Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to terminate the idea that California’s clean energy experiment has turned it into an economic wimp.

The muscle-bound movie star, who’s now a climate change activist, argues it hasn’t.

As governor, Schwarzenegger signed California’s signature clean energy regulations into law in 2006. Known as the California Global Warming Solutions Act, or AB 32, the law requires the state to dramatically cut its greenhouse gas emissions.
