June 2nd, 2005 – Arnold versus the greenhouse. (1989 – “Hansen versus the world”)

On June 2, 2005, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger announced an initiative to curb greenhouse gas emissions in California as a step towards addressing global warming. In his speech, the governor declared, “The debate is over. We know the science. We see the threat, and we know the time for action is now.

“I say the debate is over. We know the science. We see the threat, and we know the time for action is now.”

–Arnold Schwarzenegger
