British Columbia Premier Gordon Campbell has signed an agreement with California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger that sets out joint action on climate change and the conservation of the Pacific Coast.
The agreement called the “Memorandum of Understanding on Pacific Coast Collaboration to Protect our Shared Climate and Oceans” commits B.C. and Claifornia to work together to cap and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. They are also to collaborate on developing new clean technologies.
The press release of May 31 says that the governments will join with other jurisdictions to build a hydrogen highway from B.C. to Baja, California.
Insofar as coastal protection is concerned, the agreement covers sharing information about coastal and ocean resources and managing marine protection areas. It also talks about synchronizing environmental protection at ports.
