Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Tuesday rebuked Valero Energy Corp. and Tesoro Corp., which operate refineries in Wilmington, for bankrolling a measure that would effectively scuttle the state’s efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions.“Go home, Texas oil companies,” Villaraigosa urged at a news conference…. “We won’t compromise our environmental and health standards so you can make more money,” he said.
Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina on Friday endorsed an oil-company funded ballot initiative that seeks to indefinitely delay California’s landmark global warming law.
Once again, Fiorina proves she is not only out of touch with Californians, who overwhelmingly support the state’s leadership on clean energy and climate change, but she is also out of touch with the facts, which show that AB 32 is creating the one bright spot in California’s economy and attracting the majority of the nation’s venture capital investment in clean energy technology.
