Freedom From Oil
Dear Global Exchange Supporter,
Election day, November 2, is less than a week away and Global Exchange is working hard on a campaign in California challenging the oil industry over two measures that have significant national and global implications.
Big polluters, Koch Industries and Texas oil companies Valero and Tesoro, are spending millions promoting a deceptive initiative on California’s ballot, Proposition 23, trying to kill the state’s Global Warming Solutions Act. A recent editorial in the Sacramento Bee stated "If Proposition 23 were to pass on Nov. 2, it would be a major setback to state, national and international efforts to fight global warming."
“The Stakes are High”
We must stop the oil industry’s Prop 23 from blocking our environmental legislation and prevent Prop 23 from harming the burgeoning green economy, green jobs, clean tech and renewable energy investments. During the current economic downturn, the clean tech sector has been the only sector adding jobs.
Stop Prop 26!
Chevron is a leading a team of corporate polluters backing Prop 26, an underhanded attempt to cut off our ability to make polluters pay. The Proposition would increase the voting threshold from a simple to a two-thirds majority in the legislature to pass new fees against corporate polluters. Chevron is leading this pack of conspirators with $3.75 million invested in Prop 26 to date.
