California is facing a familiar fight with Prop 23 on the ballot this November. It’s a heated debate between environmentalists who are pushing for clean energy and big oil that wants to rescind green friendly rules and lower the bar for carbon emissions. Prop 23 is set up to overturn AB 32 which was passed by Schwarzenegger and requires that greenhouse gas emission levels in the state be cut to 1990 levels by 2020. In this episode, Bob examines the pros and cons of the measure with Jack Stewart who believes that Prop 23 will create jobs and Steven Maviglio who sees it as a step backwards for California.
