Power Vote California takes on Big Oil

This election we face a major attack on California's clean energy and global warming policy - Big Oil is pushing Proposition 23, a ballot measure to gut California's landmark Global Warming Solutions Act. The California Student Sustainability Coalition, and young people across the state are mobilizing behind Power Vote California to defeat Prop 23. We think with our people power we can stop Big Oil from ruining our drive to a clean energy economy.

Today I joined a meeting with City College of San Francisco's environmental group, Green Corps. Over the weekend they had trained 20 people on the Power Vote California Campaign, and today they were finalizing their plan to mobilze thousands of their peers to vote on November 2nd. Green Corps is one of dozens of groups across the state building campus campaigns to turn out the youth vote and make sure the dirty energy proposition goes down in flames. With only 35 days until the election, this sort of work is critical. This coming weekend the CSSC is hosting trainings in San Diego and Los Angeles to make sure our entire network is ready to rock the vote over the next month.

We're also excited to team up with Communities United, a coalition of grassroots, community and environmental justic groups to host a six-city "Clean Energy Tour." Through art, activism and music, we'll expose the dirty antics of Big Oil and plug people into fighting for the green economy. You can check out the tour dates at CleanEnergyTour.com and attend the concerts for free just by pledging to vote.

One of the Clean Energy Tour stops is the CSSC 9th Annual Fall Convergence at UC Santa Barbara on October 15 - 17.  CSSC convergences are twice a year, and full of fun, networking, ideas, building lifelong friends, and tackling serious issues with incredible youth leaders from across California.  The Fall 2010 Convergence is no exception.  I hope you will join us at UC Santa Barbara for a weekend to remember.  With only 16 days until election day, youth leaders at the convergence will be focusing on planning and implementing a two-week "Clean Energy Surge" to stop Prop 23 and its dirty energy funders from killing California's clean energy laws and jeopardizing over 500,000 green jobs.

We've got a lot of work cut out for us, but you can feel the energy across the state. Together we can set a strong pecedent on November 2nd. We the people won't let dirty energy companies set the laws in our country.  We are standing up and fighting back. And we hope you'll join us.

Often times it takes

Often times it takes litigation to fix the problem which is quite unfortunate. Companies are starting to understand the social ramifications of touting renewable energy. Soon it will be more economical for them as well. I know an ip attorney that is moving his practice more toward environmental law for that reason.

It sounds like there are some big events coming up for this movement in the next few weeks. The election will certainly be interesting. The biggest thing that they have going for them it that nobody can afford a green economy. If it was easier to obtain then your efforts would be golden.
