ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a bill AB 32 to fight greenhouse gas emissions in California. The bill is co-sponsored by the Natural Resource Defense Council, oil and gas refineries and utility plants to decrease carbon dioxide emissions and greenhouse gases. It plans to reduce emissions by 25 percent by 2020. California becomes the first state in the U.S. to fight global warming.

    The ratio of warming to cumulative emissions of carbon dioxide has been shown to be approximately independent of time and emissions scenarios and directly relates emissions to temperature. It is therefore a potentially important tool for climate mitigation policy. The transient climate response...
