Can Arnold Schwarzenegger and California's environmental impulses coexist?

That's the question asked in an editorial in today's New York Times. The editorial goes on to note:

The prospects are better than one may have thought. Much will depend on the people he chooses for key posts, not least the chairmanship of the powerful California Air Resources Board, whose mandates over the years have driven Detroit to make cleaner cars and the refiners to make cleaner fuels. As with all politicians, much will also depend on whether he means what he says and acts on it. Still, his comments and campaign literature not only hearten conservationists but put him sharply at odds with the Bush administration.

For the rest of the article:
