Cap-and-trade puts a limit on carbon emissions and requires polluters to obtain permits to release greenhouse gases.

"California Governor Jerry Brown said" There's a lot of mystery here and there's a lot of miracles and there's a lot of prayers. For example, the bill restricts the state's ability to further regulate certain facilities that already are under the cap-and-trade system.

In his address to the legislature, Brown framed the bill as an worldwide model for future efforts to reduce global emissions, and stressed just how crucial its implementation will be in the coming years.

Garcia, who represents an area of southern Los Angeles County choked by dirty air, has fought to link local air-quality improvements with any extension of cap and trade. As SFGATE reported, many conservative legislators opposed the cap-and-trade extension out of concerns that it would cause an increase in gas and electricity prices. They said Brown's plan is too friendly to the oil industry and is not aggressive enough to save the planet from climate change. Andy Vidak, a Republican from Hanford in the agricultural Central Valley.

The bill was supported by national environmental groups and business interests, which echo Brown's refrain that cap and trade is the most affordable way for California to meet its ambitious climate goals.

The California program is the only one of its kind in the United States and is considered an worldwide model by using regulatory financial pressure to encourage carbon-releasing industries to reduce emissions, the Los Angeles Times reported. Republicans played a deciding factor in both houses, providing one critical vote in the state Senate and seven in the Assembly. Without cap and trade, state regulators will be forced to enact restrictive mandates on polluters that would be burdensome for businesses and significantly more expensive for consumers, Brown said.

According to the New York Times, the program implements a statewide cap on carbon dioxide emissions, with companies granted the option of exceeding the cap with the purchase of additional "pollution credits". And some lawmakers question why Brown urgently wants to extend a program that doesn't expire for another 2½ years.

Brown made a trip to China last month, plans to attend a climate summit in Germany in November, and will host a climate conference next year in San Francisco.
