What is going on with this country? California has to fight off companies that are trying to harm it in every way. Ever heard of Enron? Greed will be the end of us. There is now a Texas-based oil company, Valero, that’s hijacking our broken initiatives process in an attempt to rollback our state’s landmark legislation to abate climate change, AB32. AB 32 establishes that California, the planet’s 12th-biggest emitter of CO2, is first in the world for legislated reductions of greenhouse gases.
Valero is the biggest contributor—$500,000 already—to a deceptive initiative effort to block implementation of AB32. Until Valero backs down, Californians who care about stopping climate change and building a new green economy should boycott Valero gas. There are more than 800 Valero stations in California. Let’s tell the Texas oil barons: Don’t mess with California.
