And to further demonstrate how passionate California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) is about curbing global warming and how determined he is to play a role in the upcoming presidential race -- even if it's congratulating someone on the other side -- he has just released a statement praising Obama's energy plan.
"I applaud Senator Obama for introducing legislation to establish a national version of California's groundbreaking Low Carbon Fuel Standard," Schwarzenegger said. "By adopting our approach of employing enforceable standards and market competition to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Senator Obama's legislation, like the bi-partisan legislation proposed by California Senator Dianne Feinstein, can dramatically increase investment in low carbon fuels at the same time it effectively fights climate change, expands consumer choice and rewards innovation."
