The article reports on the key environmental regulations, the AB 32, also known as the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 that would require hoteliers in California to their carbon footprint emission. The key provisions are to restore the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the level as it was in 1990 by the year 2020. However, the implication of AB 32 raised several issues such as the determination of the current carbon emission in 2009 and the carbon emission level in 1990.
