"While the California Jobs Initiative ó which advocates Prop 23 ó said the bill will supply jobs in the oil industry, opponents of the proposition speculate the bill will eliminate 500,000 jobs in the green energy industry."

And the oil and coal industries are starting to run scared and invent 'roadblocks' designed to maintain their edge. They will lose though they can do a lot of damage in the fight.

The damage will be from you guys wreaking the economy if you ever get your way. But it increasingly looks like you won't. I'm not celebrating yet, but I have my hopes.

"While the implementation of policies under AB 32 is still being carefully crafted, AB 32 has been the catalyst for the creation of more than 500,000 jobs and 12,000 businesses which have attracted more than $10 billion in venture capital -- five times more than any other state. California has quickly become the leader in solar energy development and is, according to the Wall Street Journal, home to seven of the top 10 clean tech companies and three of the five best cities for clean tech job creation. In this period of time, Applied Materials has built a billion dollar energy and environmental solutions business, employing hundreds of people here in California and many other locations around the world."
