When California passed its Global Warming Solutions Act in 2006, it represented a turning point in the debate over clean energy and global warming.  For once, it seemed, economic innovation and environmental stewardship triumphed over Big Oil and corporate greed. Many clean energy and environmental advocates hoped the bill's passage marked the start of a trend for similar legislation in other states and in Washington.

Today, however, those same oil giants are fighting round two by bankrolling the "Yes on 23" campaign in favor of a proposition repealing the Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32).

Not surprisingly, the oil-funded "Yes on 23" campaign to repeal California's revolutionary global warming bill is being perpetrated by spewing falsehoods, misrepresentations, and lies.
