SACRAMENTO The Trump administration may appear to control climate policy in Washington, but the nations most dynamic environmental regulator is here in California.
Mary D. Nichols, Californias electric-car-driving, hoodie-wearing, 72-year-old air quality regulator, is pressing ahead with a far-reaching agenda of environmental and climate actions. She says she will not let the Trump administration stand in her way.
As chairwoman of the California Air Resources Board, or CARB, Ms. Nichols is the de facto enforcer of the single biggest step the United States has taken to combat the effects of climate change: standards adopted under the Obama administration that mandate a deep cut in emissions from the 190 million passenger cars on Americas roads. Together, those vehicles regularly emit more earth-warming gases than the countrys power plants.
Without an aggressive shift toward zero- and low-emissions cars, the American auto industry risks becoming a global laggard, Ms. Nichols said. It is no time, she said, to be meddling with standards already in place.
We want to start conversations about post-2025, Ms. Nichols said. Thats what were getting ready for.

Sorry, guys, the climate change people are causing all this great weather here in sunny California and leaving the snow, ice, floods and hurricanes to the rest of you.
Unfortunately that along with many other greenie issues unique to the PRK#2 have impacted us as consumers nationally.
Another reason to flee cali. Get out before you are charged a 20% exit tax.
Has Ms Nichols critiqued Californias tentative sanctuary state policy? This policy would increase the size of the states carbon footprint with carbon dioxide-exhaling illegal immigrants who are then licensed by California to drive vehicles with even bigger carbon footprints.

Someone ask Ms. Big Nurse how the winter of 2016-2017 turned into the biggest snow year in decades, ending the drought in virtually all of California.
