If the Federal government won't take a stand against global warming, individual states will have to do it alone. California has filed a lawsuit against six leading car manufacturers, saying that the emissions from the cars they produce are changing the state's weather.
Andrew Gumbel reports in the Independent that California attorney general Bill Lockyer is suing General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota and Nissan because they "either knew or should have known the severe impact their vehicles would have on the health of the planet?Vehicle emissions are the single most rapidly growing source of the carbon emissions contributing to global warming, yet the federal government and the automakers have refused to act."
California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Republican who has courted the support of President Bush, says, "There are some issues in the world that are simply so compelling?that they demand us to put aside our partisan differences and attack them head on."
