Shadowing Senator Boxer in California

sites/all/files/smaller_best_boxer_fiorna_debate.jpgAs part of our efforts to let our senators know we still expect them to pass a serious climate bill, a team of volunteers headed to a debate between California's Senator Barbara Boxer and Republican candidate Carly Fiorina on Wednesday.

Joe Romm at Climate Progress has a great post (with footage from the debate) about what happened when climate change came up as a topic in the debate. At issue is Proposition 23, a proposal that would put a moratorium on implementing California's global warming law, AB32. Boxer is opposed to the measure; Fiorina has yet to take a position on it.

We'll be working with all the 10/10 event organizers in California to draw a link between getting to work in our communities, and getting our politicians to get to work implementing the laws that will lead the country to cut our emissions.

 

Freeze New Fossil Fuel Development

Governments meeting at the next climate conference must put their Paris pledges into action -- and action means no more room for new fossil fuel projects.
