Watch the Debate: Proposition 23 and the Future of California's Economy and Environment
On Oct. 21, 2010 at Korn Convocation Hall the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, KPCC Southern California Radio and the LA Times presented a public debate on Prop. 23, which would suspend AB 32, the Global Warming Solutions Act that requires reduced greenhouse gas emissions, until California's unemployment rate drops to 5.5% or below for four consecutive quarters.
Supporters call Prop 23 the California Jobs Initiative. Opponents label it the Dirty Energy Proposition. This debate presented both sides of the issue. To view a brochure with background information on Proposition 23 and California's Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32) click here.
