SD UT Joins Growing List to Question Timing on AB32 Implementation

The San Diego Union Tribune newspaper editorialized today about the timing of California’s strict greenhouse gas emissions policy implementation in an economic recession.  See here for full op ed.  … “we applaud Republicans for spotlighting Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s and the air board’s absurd insistence that implementing AB 32 – the state’s main anti-global warming law – will actually help the economy.

“Don’t believe us. Believe the academic experts hired to review the air board’s economic analysis of the law’s effects. One, the director of Harvard’s Environmental Economics Program, said the ARB analysis was so shoddy it threatened to undercut others’ efforts to fight global warming. Two others said the analysis was more akin to cheerleading than science. Another said the study made no serious attempt to evaluate AB 32’s impact on 1.5 million California manufacturing jobs.”
