Will Big Oil go all-in for Prop 26?

Oct 13, 2010

Is anyone Prop 23'd out yet? The answer may be Big Oil.

By now, most voters in the environmental community know what Prop 23 is. If passed, it would suspend and effectively kill AB32 our landmark global warming law to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions back to 1990 levels by 2020. It's no secret that Prop 23, the Dirty Energy initiative has been primarily funded by two Texas oil companies (Valero and Tesoro) along with the climate change-denier kings the Koch brothers. But after these three put in their combined $6.5 million dollars back in September, the money for the Yes on Prop 23 campaign oddly stopped coming in. Meanwhile, CLCV and our allies on the No on Prop 23 campaign have been steadily building a coalition of Democrats, Republicans, business leaders, and environmentalists that are standing united in our opposition to the deceitful measure. In fact, our work has been so effective that recent polling suggests the measure will lose.  Read More >

Meg Whitman won’t vote to kill the state's climate law; “she just wants to cut off its oxygen supply”

Sep 24, 2010

It seems like everyone was talking about Whitman’s announcement this week that she had finally made a decision to vote “No” on Proposition 23, also known as the “Dirty Energy Proposition.” Prop 23 would effectively repeal California’s first-in-the-nation climate change solutions law, also known as AB 32. But Whitman’s announcement didn’t quite get the response she had hoped for. Here are a few responses to Whitman’s announcement that she would oppose Prop 23 but still call for a year-long moratorium on California’s climate and clean energy law: Read More >

2010 Legislative wrap-up

Sep 23, 2010

In the 2010 California Legislative session that recently ended, CLCV helped pass a variety of significant environmental legislation, including important wins on climate change and dangerous toxins.  Just as important, we successfully thwarted an unprecedented number of bad bills pushed by polluters, many of which tried to use the recession as an excuse to weaken enforcement of environmental protection.

Carly Fiorina's latest flip-flop: She DOES have a position on Prop 23

Sep 3, 2010

Today, Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina endorsed an oil-company funded ballot initiative that seeks to kill California's landmark global warming and clean energy law. Over the next several days and weeks, please help spread the word about these two important things: Carly Fiorina and Prop 23 would be TERRIBLE for California's environment and air quality, our clean energy future, and our economy. Both are supported by out-of-state, polluting fossil fuel interests. We should reject them both at the ballot box in November. Read More >

In the great Senate debate, it's Boxer 1, Fiorina 0

Sep 2, 2010
