    MR. BLUMENFELD: So today we recognize this person for an extraordinary vision and leadership as an early, ardent and articulate champion in the defense of our planet against global climate change. This person had a great team. I want to recognize Terry Tamminen and Linda Adams, who are both here, who really -- you can't do this stuff alone when you're sitting -- (Applause) And the job at the top is lonely and so when you surround yourselves by people you want to have people that free you up to take action and those are the type of people that...

    Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and First Lady Maria Shriver today welcomed Mexico President Vicente Fox and his wife, Marta Sahagún de Fox, to California. The President's visit to the Golden State is the last leg of a three-state visit to the United States. The Governor and President met in private for ten minutes in the Governor's office and a larger meeting was held immediately afterward that included advisors to both the Governor and President. The leaders discussed a variety of issues, including ways to increase the already robust business between California and its largest export trading partner. California exported $17.7 billion...

    Marine protection plan—a pet project of Terry Tamminen—comes to Seaside. Atypical Leader: Terry Tamminen’s experience includes helping create Nigeria’s first solid waste recycling program and authoring works on the life of Shakespeare. In August 2004 the Schwarzenegger administration announced its intention to resurrect plans to create the nation’s first network of protected marine reserves off California’s coast, a project that had been shut down eight months earlier for lack of money. Cheered by environmentalists and marine biologists, the decision to revitalize the Marine Life Protection Act initiative set a green tone for Schwarzenegger’s administration that came as a surprise to...

    Battered by conservative allies who believe he's broken faith with them, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger Friday replaced Cabinet Secretary Terry Tamminen, a Democrat and well-known environmental activist whose appointment two years ago was trumpeted as a show of the Republican governor's bipartisanship. Tamminen, who headed the Santa Monica-based Environment Now foundation when he became one of the governor's first major appointments in November 2003, will hold an advisory job as special assistant to the governor for energy and environmental technologies, Schwarzenegger's office announced late Friday. Fred Aguiar, who now runs the State and Consumer Services Agency, will replace Tamminen as Cabinet...

    SACRAMENTO (AP) - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Friday named a former GOP assemblyman as his new cabinet secretary, a move seen as crucial within the Republican Party to balance the governor's earlier appointment of a Democratic activist as his chief of staff. He also announced creation of a new position, deputy chief of staff and senior adviser for policy development, filling it with a Republican operative. The moves were praised by the California Republican Party, which had received angry protests from grassroots organizers when Schwarzenegger named Susan Kennedy, an aide to former Democratic Gov. Gray Davis, as his chief of...

    ...The conservative betrayal Posted: December 9, 2005 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2005 The past few weeks have been a wakeup call to those Republicans, and especially those conservatives, who got stars in their eyes and supported movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger for governor during the historic Gray Davis recall campaign. On the heels of a decisive defeat in the recent special election for his reform ballot initiatives, the Terminator is acting like he wants to terminate his alliance with the Republican Party. Since he has failed to even slow the nonstop spending of the California Legislature, Arnold's false reading of...
  • Global warming warning - California Will Miss Long-Range Greenhouse Gas Targets

    When it comes to global warming, making promises is easy. Keeping them is hard, California is learning. Six months ago, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger made international news when he committed the state to meeting strict targets reducing greenhouse gases as a way to fight global warming. A closer look at California's emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases that scientists say cause global warming reveals that even under the best scenarios, California will miss Schwarzenegger's targets by a wide margin. According to a new report, the state will miss the goals by at least 21 percent by 2020 unless his administration...

    Arnold, how could you? You were the GOP’s great gubernatorial hope. Sure, you had no political experience, were “squishy” on social issues, and had married into America’s foremost Democratic family. But you were going to terminate the state’s financial problems. How could you mandate a global warming program that will leave your people drowning in red ink long after you’ve said, “Hasta la vista, baby!” Bypassing the legislature, Schwarzenegger last month signed an executive order mandating drastic cuts in so-called greenhouse gas emissions to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050. "The debate is over," Schwarzenegger wrote July 3 in a...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - A top aide to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger described the administration's plans to reduce California's oil dependence, calling Thursday for more conservation, fuel-efficient vehicles, and hydrogen power. Terry Tamminen, the governor's newly appointed Cabinet secretary, delivered the speech by videotape at a conference on transportation. It was sponsored by Calstart, a consortium of government agencies and private companies, including automakers. Tamminen said drivers should try to conserve fuel in the near-term, with the midterm goal of buying more fuel-efficient cars and the long-term goal of finding cleaner fuels than petroleum, including hydrogen. "Proper tire inflation, using your...
