"Global Warming: Ballot Initiative Would Curb California Efforts"

"So what happens if California delays the implementation of its landmark global warming law, AB 32? The state's nonpartisan Legislative Analyst's Office has done the math on Measure 94, a proposed ballot measure, and assessed the fallout. Its verdict?  The measure would cripple but not completely dismantle the state's efforts to slash its greenhouse gas emissions; it could lead to bigger short-term profits for some businesses, but dampen investments in clean technology and green jobs.

The legislative analyst report, the first step in qualifying an initiative for the ballot, was sent to the California attorney general Tuesday."

Margot Roosevelt reports in the Greenspace blog for the Los Angeles Times January 25, 2010.
