While most of us have an understanding of how polluting fuels such as coal and oil harm the planet, the dark side of solar energy to some may still be a little murky. Defenders’ California program director Kim Delfino shines some light on the topic.
California voters last night said it loud and clear – our clean energy future is NOW. In a decisive victory against big corporate polluters, voters rejected Prop. 23, legislation designed to undo the progress the Golden State has made in tackling the challenges of climate change.
Prop. 23, a California ballot measure whose passage the Washington Post says “would be disastrous,” threatens to undermine one of the most important energy, economic and environmental laws passed in the last decade.
It’s been a tough year for national climate and energy policy in the U.S. and unfortunately progress is practically at a standstill. However, not so for states – states have been leading the way on addressing climate change, reducing carbon emissions and accelerating the development of a clean energy economy. But now, Prop. 23 threatens to undo that progress, and move our country backward.
