Forward energy

Here is another item Californians will vote on tomorrow: Proposition 87 asks voters if they endorse a new tax on oil pumped in California to fund a program that hopes to reduce the use of oil and promote clean energy. How will you vote?

You know, they'll end up using the money for something else.

I'm not big on taxes but I also support reduce use of oil and clean energy but I dont think the tax will be effectively used appropriately - at least I have not seen any sensible plans that make financial sense so I would vote not to support such tax - its just too many taxes being taken away from the people to go int o some barrel that ends up disappearing.

I would absolutely vote yes ... There are some very promising alternative energy sources one of which is wave turbines. A lot like a wind turbine but smaller because of the viscosity of water ... Wonderful photo and one I can not share from Greenville given we have no waves.

It's great at last that the States are finally waking up to the fact that the country is a major cause of the world's environmental problems. Environmentalists see solar, wave & wind power as the future. That should work very well in California with sun all the year round & the sea on the doorstep.
