Climate law suspension defeated

California is moving on up! Moving on up! Despite a high unemployment rate, the votes in the recent election have shown that California voters are more concerned with the state’s effort in dealing with climate change.

  1. Just taking a minute to say how much I appreciate ClimateYou.
    Being in Australia, it is a terrific way to keep in touch w/
    cutting edge developments in the American – and global – response
    to climate change. The succinct summary paragraphs are models
    of clear thinking, truly a voice of reason. And I thought the
    recent video interview w/ Cabinet Minister Steven Chu an
    appropriate innovation/extension. You’re obviously up w/ the latest!
    Very Well Done! Keep Up the Good Work!
