In the largest referendum on climate and clean energy this country has seen, California voters sent a loud and clear message to elected leaders across the country that the public supports action on climate change.

California voters said yes to the clean energy economy this month when they defeated Proposition 23 by a wide margin.  Supporters of the ballot measure, financed primarily by two Texas oil companies,  tried to suspend California’s historic clean energy and air pollution standards by claiming that they would harm the economy — but Californians didn’t buy it.  They know that we can have a healthy environment and a healthy economy at the same time.
