Just what we need now: squabbling on the left. Now that the “budget hole” myth has been busted by the Sightline report, let’s get serious and pass this initiative. It was never intended as a panacea for all social ills. Shame on the Sierra Club.
Get the money right and deployment of clean energy will follow. Industry will respond to the market signals. Cap and trade has failed in the EU and the US Senate when dems were in control. Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Vote for it! And send a message to Congress, like California just did with AJR43, demanding national action for a global problem.
