Van Jones Wants You to Defeat Prop 23 and Maintain California's Clean Energy Policy

by Ben Jervey

October 7, 2010
Koch Industries, which Andrew wrote about here, has essentially hijacked California's crucial Prop 23 vote. At stake in the Prop 23 vote are California's extremely progressive clean energy and air pollution standards that were introduced with the passage of the AB32 clean air law four years back. While Texas-based oil companies are funding a massive campaign to pass Prop 23, everyone from venture capitalists to energy researchers to environmental justice activists to clean energy business leaders to Governor Schwarzenegger himself are speaking out against the Proposition.

If you're trying to make heads and tails of this Prop 23 debate, Jones has a longer piece on Climate Progress that's also well worth your while.
