The governors of California, Oregon, and Washington, as well as British Columbia’s Premier, called November 14 for climate policies and programs that consider the cost of carbon. The group released a joint written statement during the GreenBuild 2012 Conference in San Francisco, pointing to California’s economy-wide GHG cap and trade program and British Columbia’s carbon tax as tools that help to price energy resources accurately and move governments toward a clean energy infrastructure. The four governments formed the Pacific Coast Collaborative in 2008 to share ideas and work together to address issues impacting the region.
