George Schultz: Conservative, Republican, Environmentalist
Former Secretary of State George Schultz has an outstanding op-ed in today’s Sacramento Bee supporting California’s greenhouse gas laws and arguing against efforts to repeal it via referendum this November. He uses quotes from Republicans John McCain and Richard Lugar to make his case and cites his former boss, Ronald Reagan.
Schultz is arguing against Proposition 23, which would repeal the bipartisan law passed in 2006 curbing greenhouse gas emissions in California. Since California environmental laws have a funny way of eventually becoming U.S. laws, this has national implications. Since greenhouse gas emissions threaten the global environment, it actually has worldwide implications.
