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.
