Schwarzenneger Says: Go Slow On Global Warming

Gov. Schwarzenneger says California should move slowly on global warming to avoid frightening businesses, drawing criticism from environmentalists.

"Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called Tuesday for California to become a national leader in combatting global warming but cautioned that the state should move slowly in imposing controls on industries that emit greenhouse gases, a step environmentalists argue is a priority.

'We could really scare the business community,' Schwarzenegger warned during a summit at San Francisco City Hall at which he called for programs to help companies cut the amount of carbon dioxide and other gases that scientists say cause global warming.

The governor's comments caused one environmentalist to suggest Schwarzenegger was a 'Jekyll and Hyde' on the issue. The matter could become the focus of a battle this year with Democrats, who are backing legislation, opposed by some big business groups, that calls for enacting emission limits on industry."
