Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, speaking about climate change at a United Nations forum in New York this morning, said he will "keep pushing regional governments around the world to come off the sidelines" to enact green energy programs such as California did during his tenure.

"We don't have to wait anymore for the national capitols to make it happen," Schwarzenegger said. "Some of the most powerful movements in human history did not start at the top. ... The battle for clean energy is no different."

The Republican was a major advocate of clean energy programs while in office, signing a landmark greenhouse gas reduction law in 2006.

"California didn't wait for Washington because we know that Washington was asleep at the wheel," he said. "You don't have to wait."
