(SAN FRANCISCO) Six of the nation's largest auotmakers have tried to dismiss California's lawsuit against them on technical grounds but in a brief filed today by Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr. the State of California affirms it's commitment to hold automakers accountable. Brown also requested a personal meeting with each of the automakers to discuss ways to fight global warming without conflict.

The manufacturers automobiles have contributed to an international global warming threat that has damaged Californias resources, jeopardized environmental health and cost millions of dollars to address current and future negative effects.
