Schwarzeneggar Proposes New Climate Strategy
"Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's climate advisers issued ambitious recommendations this week for reducing gases linked to global warming, including a new fee on gasoline and diesel.

The draft proposals fill in the blanks of an executive order Schwarzenegger issued in June, giving California the most aggressive goals in the world for fighting global warming. He commanded the state to reduce "greenhouse gas" emissions 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050."


Arnie Studying Tookie's Case
""That's just part of being governor, is to make those kinds of decisions," he said. "And there are always in this job wonderful moments like today. This is a wonderful moment, and I love this moment. I told Carol we should take a picture in front of the Christmas tree, because it's that kind of a thing."

He added: "But then again you have a terrible situation where you have to make a decision on that, on the Tookie Williams thing. Yes, it is very tough to do those things."
