If you had told me five years ago that I would picking up my Independent on Sunday to read a choerent article on the importance of tackling climate change written by Arnold Schwarzeneger I wouldn't have believed you.
But it happened. And he is not alone, several US states and more than 400 town and city mayors have already started work to tackle pollution and emmissions.
Republicans in the Senate even voted against the Bush line.
Surely it is now only a matter of time before Bush has to see sense?
