“California already has on the books one of the toughest anti-global warming laws in the world (AB 32), and it goes into effect next year but not if a bunch of Texas oil companies get their way.”
Several people in local Transition meetings have brought up the “No on 23” campaign, since it ties in with the Transition concern about global warming. This particular group concentrates on the grassroots campaign, as opposed to the media campaign. This fits in well with Transition’s grassroots orientation.
The campaign workers John and Spencer are fresh-faced young men, not long out of college. They seemed to respond to Transition’s slogan of being “more like a party than a protest.”
