States Lead the Nation

Jan 24, 2011

California's #1! According to the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy, California is the most energy efficient state in the nation. That's no small feat when you consider that California's economy is the eighth largest in the world and our population is larger than many countries. But more importantly, California has been setting the example for the nation on how to tackle the climate crisis, as we passed AB 32 in 2006 pledging to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020.

For this, we earned our share of flack from Republicans and Big Business who claimed that California's cap-and-trade program was bound to fail because we were stuck going-it-alone. Although the talking point stuck, it was as factually incorrect then as it is now. Read More >

Dewey Defeats Truman 2010

Nov 24, 2010

Dewey Defeats Truman.

That headline will always be one of my favorites. Back then in a world without the internet and information at the palm of your hand, it's slightly understandable that a newspaper would make such a major error in a tough election. After all, with print deadlines to meet, reporters couldn't accurately get election returns before an article about an election was due at the printer for the next morning's paper. Of course, that blatantly wrong headline and article lives on infamy as the poster-child for not declaring victory too early. But once in a while, someone forgets and learns their lesson the hard way. Read More >
