The article focuses on global warming and global greenhouse gas (CHG) emission reduction policy in California and Massachusetts. It mentions that the California Global Warming Solutions Act (CGWSA) that was signed by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2006 is considered to be the first of the state legislature against global warming threats. It states that the Massachusetts Global Warming Solutions Act (MGWSA) that was signed by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick on August 7, 2008 requires the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EOEEA) to monitor the CHG emissions. It says that the accomplishment of California and Massachusetts regarding global warming policy is impressive and should be praised.
