Perhaps the people of California simple care more about their state and preserving some of the natural enviorment than the others? That often happens in areas as they grow in population and people realize how important preserving the natural environment is. Its not uncommon for folks living in less populated areas to ignore issues that could well come back and bit them or future generations in the not to distant future.
Funny enough the Governor of California has come up to Vancouver BC a number of times to get ideas about doing things in a more environmentally friendly fashion, yet I do not hear folks complaining about all the eco
friendly rules we have in place as folks do when discussion California. Yet funny enough we have the same and in many cases more rules and in many cases the rules where put in place here long before they were in California. ;-)
