Has a decade of Golden State climate diplomacy made a difference?

GUADALAJARA, Mexico — The Brazilians are frustrated. They've just learned that California, yet again, has delayed making a decision on whether to allow its businesses to fund greenhouse gas reduction efforts in other countries. Many experts believe accepting international offsets is the most direct route to a goal that has long eluded climate policymakers: reducing deforestation in developing countries. But after six years of study, California has still not decided whether to recognize international forestry offsets, under which businesses would pay governments, landowners and indigenous groups to restore forests or keep them intact.
