Climate Change

Editor's Note: CleanTechnica Offers to Host Meg Whitman / Gavin Newsom Debate

In response to the contention caused by Meg Whitman’s OP-Ed on rescinding AB32 climate-change legislation, and the pointed response by Mayor Gavin Newsom, is formally offering to host a discussion between the two gubernatorial candidates.

I’d like to let our readers know that we’re currently reaching out to Meg Whitman’s campaign, and offering her the chance to post a written response here, as well participate in a live debate with San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom. If you’re involved with Meg Whitman’s campaign you can contact us at editor AT greenoptions DOT com.

We’d love to see a thoughtful debate on this topic:

As governor, I would work hard to protect our environment. But the needs of our environment have to be balanced with the needs of our people and the needs of our economy. We have too many overreaching environmental regulations that have left us at an economic disadvantage to our neighboring states and AB 32 is a prime example.  -Meg Whitman

Meg Whitman penned an op-ed last week stating she’d suspend California’s landmark climate-change legislation, AB32, on her first day if elected governor. This is backwards thinking, and I disagree. -Mayor Newsom

Feel free to comment here on AB32, or do so on Mayor Newsom’s post.
