Hours after Gov. Jerry Brown issued a spirited attack on politicians who doubt the significance of climate change, Brown's predecessor -- former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger -- praised Brown but urged a spirit of inclusiveness.
"To me, it made no difference if a Democrat had a great idea or a Republican had a great idea, or if someone from the outside had a great idea, or if someone from within the office had a great idea," Schwarzenegger said this afternoon at Brown's conference on climate change at the California Academy of Science in San Francisco.
"The more inclusive you are about this, and the less you villainize anybody, the better you're off," he added.

I’m proud of Jerry. It takes real skill and diligence to suck this much.
Where is the BARF ALERT...
It sounds like Ahnold believes that the “climate change” hoax and scam is a “good idea”. I’ve got to admit, it’s one way to steal other people’s money while taking the energy out of the American machine. I don’t consider that a “good idea” however.
We are all proud of you Arnold for your out of wedlock child.(er..children)
Arnold and Brown - back-to-back Leftists.
Of course he is. And Freepers were warned about Arnold in 2003.
When arnie was running against davis, a lot of freepers were singing his praises cause he was a pubbie. How do they feel now, I wonder? I haven’t seen them post much.
Western Climate Initiative http://www.c2es.org/what_s_being_done/in_the_states/regional_initiatives.cfm#wci
On February 26, 2007, Governors Napolitano of Arizona, Schwarzenegger of California, Richardson of New Mexico, Kulongoski of Oregon, and Gregoire of Washington signed an agreement establishing the Western Climate Initiative (WCI), a joint effort to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and address climate change. Since that time, the governors of Utah and Montana, as well as the premiers of British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec (not shown above) have joined. An additional 14 jurisdictions participate as observers, including the U.S. states of Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Nevada, and Wyoming; the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan; and the Mexican border states of Baja California, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, Sonora, and Tamaulipas.
In the Initiative’s Memorandum of Understanding, WCI members agreed to jointly set a regional emissions target and establish a market-based systemsuch as a cap-and-trade program covering multiple economic sectorsto aid in meeting this target. In August 2007, the Western Climate Initiative announced its regional, economy-wide greenhouse gas emissions target of 15 percent below 2005 levels by 2020, or approximately 33 percent below business-as-usual levels. The regional target is designed to be consistent with existing targets set by individual member states and does not replace these goals. Covered emissions include the six primary greenhouse gases identified by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change: carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and sulfur hexafluoride.
In September 2008, the WCI released Design Recommendations for a cap-and-trade program; beginning in 2012, the program will cover emissions from electricity and large industrial and commercial sources, and it will cover emissions from transportation and other residential, commercial, and industrial fuel use beginning in 2015. In July 2010, the WCI Partners released the Design for the WCI Regional Program, a comprehensive strategy designed to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, stimulate development of clean-energy technologies, create green jobs, increase energy security, and protect public health. It is a plan to reduce regional GHG emissions to 15 percent below 2005 levels by 2020, and is the culmination of two years of work by seven U.S. states and four Canadian provinces. It builds on the recommendations for a regional cap-and-trade program that the Partners released in September 2008.
The WCI builds on work already undertaken individually by the participating states and provinces, as well as two earlier regional agreements: the Southwest Climate Change Initiative of 2006, which includes Arizona and New Mexico, and the West Coast Governors’ Global Warming Initiative of 2003, which includes California, Oregon, and Washington.
If you would like to see how climate change/sustainable development now permeates all the programs of the various state agencies, go here - about 2/3 of the way down - particularly the Strateg5c Growth Council http://users.sisqtel.net/armstrng/agenda21.htm
Worst mistake we made, voting for RINO Arnold. We thought he was a tough guy conservative. But seems only in movies. In real life he folded and spread them for the unions and Dems like a girly man.
Arnold must be hard up for a new Hollywood part.
Sucking up to the left again.
Sheesh. What an embarrassment he turned into.
As the stomach turns!!!
“Arnold Schwarzenegger ‘proud’ of Jerry Brown on environment”
and this comes as a surprise how, exactly?
Just remember the GOP hacks who supported Arnold over Tom McClintock; Hugh Hewitt being a prominent example.
Keep that in mind when you hear Hewitt, or Medved, pushing Romney this election.
The average whorehouse has higher standards for admission than the GOP does.
"Sounds like"? He always has been a raging greenie socialist, sucking up to his buddy Warren Buffet.
"Sounds like"? He always has been a raging greenie socialist. Here he is, sucking up to his buddy Warren Buffet, who is sucking up to his buddy, Jake.
Where is your ‘Blind Trust’ in aRnoid and Moonbeam to do the right thing for all of us? Wachter traveled with aRnie on junkets and was his go to man for investments he managed in the Gubby’s “Blind Trust”.
Their administrations and policies are pretty much interchangeable... as is their agendas.
California is dying on the vine and the Left and gReens could care less. they got theirs the old fashioned way, they stole itand are letting everybody else pay for it.
