States Taking Action on Global Warming:  With the federal governement inactive, states taking many actions.
  • Cap-and-trade: New York, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey and Delaware -- plus Maryland, Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia, and the Eastern Canadian Provinces as observers -- have agreed to create a nine state cap-and-trade system for greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), starting with the electric power sector.
  • Renewable power:  "Seventeen states have legislated that part of their electricity be generated by non-emitting renewable energy."  8 are small amounts, but 6 are over 15%.
  • Vehicles:  Following California's lead, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, Washington, Oregon, and Pennsylvania have adopted or are considering adoption of California's vehicle emissions standards.  In November 2004, Canadian NGOs, provincial governments and parliament announced their intention to adopt the California standard by 2006.  If California, Oregon, Washington, the Northeast states and Canada were to adopt the California standards, around 40% of the US-Canada new car market would be subject to these standards.
