Gov. Orders Wash. Agencies To Cut Greenhouse Emissions

"Gov. Chris Gregoire on Thursday ordered [Washington] state to reach agreement with its single largest polluter to cut greenhouse-gas emissions by half over the next 15 years.

On a day when nearly 1,000 people waving signs and banners rallied on Seattle's waterfront in support of efforts to tackle global warming, Gregoire told state agencies to take several actions to reduce the carbon emissions that contribute to climate change."
