First and largest referendum on clean energy policy

Strong aggressive messaging from climate hawks in California - including its Governor (left) - ensured that voters yesterday rejected Proposition 23, which sought to repeal the 2006 Global Warming Act.

Time magazine describes this result as:

a decisive and historic victory for the state’s clean energy economy, clean air and climate policy. The defeat of the Dirty Energy Proposition signifies the first and largest public referendum in history on clean energy policy.
