Attorney General Jerry Brown has “1,100 lawyers standing by and they’re looking for someone to sue,” according to the Sacramento Bee. A March 31, 2008 article quoted the Attorney General discussing “his determination to go to court to enforce California laws to cut pollutants blamed for global warming.”

See Abbott & Kindermann’s review of the first of the Attorney General’s five conferences entitled CEQA and Climate Change: Partnering with Local Agencies to Combat Global Warming.
