As we wake this morning to the smoke and ash and take in the magnitude of damage this fire has brought upon our beautiful city, I hope we can each take moment to reach out to friends and neighbors—it is in these difficult times that we most need our community to hold us up.


Some environmentalists said the law extending California’s cap and trade system to 2030 is a sellout to the oil industry, and that it shortchanges disadvantaged communities that breathe the dirtiest air. How do California’s climate moves play into national politics and policy? Will climate and energy play a meaningful role in the upcoming midterm elections? Will companies make energy policy more of a priority? We look back at how Gov. Schwarzenegger set the tone and how his past leadership continues to influence California’s policies today.
