The "No on 23" campaign has resorted to fear mongering and alarmist claims about Proposition 23. I can't say we're surprised, after all if there is an exaggerated claim to be made, environmentalists are on top of it. Even the name, "Stop Dirty Energy," implies alarmism.
Now the group is claiming that 60 other environmental regulations will be called into question. To hear them describe it you would expect to find yourself ankle deep in tar any second.
Except that "Yes on 23" only specifically targets co2 regulations and utilities to producing 33 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2020. Both of these regulations are not in effect currently, and yet California continues to grace the world with its good weather and clean environment.
"No on 23" is relying on wild claims to convince voter' they're doing the right thing, but the right thing to do is release California from the burdensome, job-killing regulations proposed in AB 32.
