The Los Angeles times covers this in a brief but informative article that describes what may be the shape of things to come in terms of environmental protection. Their ‘cap and trade’ system sets limits to emissions, and then allows polluters to trade credits to reduce overall emission levels. National Public Radio Science Friday also has a podcast of a show that deals with this.

It’s certainly interesting to see the alliance between Blair and Schwarzenegger on Kyoto-like carbon trading agreements. Interesting as well to see a Republican Governor take the lead on this, albiet in a state with a historically progressive view on envionmental issues.
