    I agree except for the view on AB32. I agree that developing nations will continue to use Carbon based energy as long as it is available. I agree that the effect on greenhouse gases in our shared atmosphere will not be affected if California or the USA stopped using Coal and Oil due to the use around the globe. I do not see the behavior of other actors as a reasonable justification for continuing a pattern of environmentally destructive behavior. I do see a great benefit in having an economic climate which encourages and rewards using sustainable energy. California should be the largest exporter of Green Energy technology. Tesla motors is one fine example of how new technology can create new industry like a phoenix out of an empty shell at NUMI.

    great views except on prop 19. .. your idea that this bill will basically legalize consumption of marijuana in California, is simplistic and short sited. Even if you are correct that current marijuana laws should be changed, this is the wrong bill to do it. It pits city against city to tax and enforce the law in different ways. I think the proponents should go back to the drawing board and rewrite the law for the voters to consider. This particular law is a bad one.
