California’s air board, which developed a carbon-trading system after U.S. legislators failed to agree on a federal plan, has hailed the program as a blueprint for the rest of the world to follow. The link to Quebec, the first region that California has proposed to partner with, lays the groundwork for a broader system that other governments may join.
“We are pleased with the Governor’s findings and will continue to work on all necessary additional steps to ensure California’s efforts to link with Quebec are successful,” Stanley Young, a spokesman for the air board in Sacramento, said by e-mail today.
