Schwarzenegger signed first US law limiting greenhouse gas emissions
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On September 27, 2006, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 into law, marking the approval of the first US bill designed to restrict greenhouse gas emissions. The legislation aims at bringing California into near compliance with the terms of the Kyoto Protocol by reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent by 2020 and granting new authority to the California Air Resources Board to set specific emission targets for various industries.

Learn more about the Kyoto Protocol from the JURIST news archive.
