Don't Be Fooled by Bogus Renewable Energy Measures, Say California Conservation Groups
Props 7 and 10 Would Harm Clean Energy, Slow Fight Against Global Warming
LOS ANGELES - A coalition of California’s leading conservation groups urged voters to cast “no” votes against Propositions 7 and 10 on this November’s ballot. The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), California League of Conservation Voters (CLCV), Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) and The Sierra Club, which for decades have led the fight to bring clean energy to California, warned that the renewable energy measures were fatally flawed and, if passed, would harm the state’s efforts to create a clean energy economy.
More information about how Props 7 and 10 would harm renewable energy development in California is available here.
THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES
Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
The Natural Resources Defense Council is a national, nonprofit organization of scientists, lawyers and environmental specialists dedicated to protecting public health and the environment. Founded in 1970, NRDC has 1.2 million members and online activists, served from offices in New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Beijing.
