arnolds.jpg Mary Nichols was just hired to try and quiet the storm. Arnold's stance on Global Warming must now be considered a con:

Her appointment follows the recent departure of two top board officials who each complained publicly that meddling by the Schwarzenegger administration on behalf of business interests limited their ability to draft effective regulations for curbing greenhouse gas emissions and improving air quality.

Nichols replaces Robert Sawyer, who says he was fired after pushing to implement more aggressive action to curb global warming than the administration supports.

Witherspoon said she and her staff were also pressured by the administration to ease a crackdown on heavy diesel construction equipment after industry representatives complained the draft regulations were too tough.

I hope the Hollywood community that supported his re-election are proud of themselves. Tools...Except for Warren Beatty, that is.

Can you help us out?
