Annotation:
According to the article, California Environmental Protection Agency’s (“Cal/EPA”) Secretary Linda Adams recent trip to Nairobi, Kenya has resulted in criticism from some environmental justice groups. The trip, which was undertaken to “build worldwide partnerships as part of efforts to implement the State’s new climate change law, AB 32,” was criticized because the Climate Group, a Britain-based organization that supports flexible cap-and trade programs, paid for it. One environmental justice activist who opposes such credit trading programs stated that sponsorship from the Climate Group for the trip was “outrageous” and “crossed the line” because Cal/EPA is “in the midst of making decisions for a major regulatory program, and [it is] accepting money from people who have a huge interest in the outcome.” Article taken from EJ in the News.
