From World Changing:
California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is a bit of an enigma. He has promoted state policies that have alienated both progressives and moderates (as demonstrated by the resounding election defeat for his various initiatives), but has done more to push a green agenda than pretty much any previous governor. The latest step in his plan, the Green Building Initiative, mandates that all public buildings be 20% more efficient by 2015, and suggests regulatory incentives to get private buildings to meet that same goal (PDF).
Pretty cool! To bad more governors don’t show this kind of leadership when it comes to the environment. I was just talking this week with Hope after watching The Corporation that one of the most important things to change the world would be energy efficiency and green building.
