Van Jones on California's Prop 23
The supporters of Prop. 23 say AB 32 is a jobs killer – is that true? Would Prop. 23 be better for the state’s economy?
In California, there’s always one ballot measure that does the opposite of what it says and that is this one. AB 32 is a jobs creator. Half a million people are working in California right now in clean tech and clean energy fields, because of the leadership that California’s legislature has shown. That’s the truth. And all this is is Texas oil money trying to knock out Silicon Valley as a competitor for the energy future in America. That’s all it is. If this were really about jobs in California…Californians would be putting money [into the proposition]. All the money here is coming from Texas. Source: Carib Press
