Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger launched a project Friday that aims to provide all fifty state legislators with a blueprint to pass climate change legislation to counter President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord.
The former California governor unveiled the Digital Environmental Legislative Handbook in partnership with the Schwarzenegger Institute at the University of Southern California and the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators:

Schwarzenegger says states do not have to wait for the federal government to combat climate change.
“There’s no reason why we shouldn’t have a digital legislative handbook — and make it available to people who wanted to create environmental action now — because of the situation with Trump,” Schwarzenegger told Politico in an interview Thursday.
