THE ANSWER IS BLOWIN' IN THE WIND...
Wednesday, November 08, 2006
Today, Nov 7th, is election day in America. Though I have seen several elections come and go during the six years I have lived in the San Francisco-Bay Area, here is one election-issue that is worth saying YES to...it has caused so much debate, oil companies have spent about a 100 million dollars trying to confuse voters to vote against it. Why?
WHAT CAN PROP 87 DO?
PROP 87 will reduce California's dependence on oil and foreign oil (1/2 of our consumption comes from the Middle East!) with alternative sources like BIOFUELS, WIND and SOLAR; it will stop the hold of oil conglomerates on CA energy market and give choices that are cheaper and cleaner. It reduces energy cost and green house emissions. California has the worst air quality in the nation-- mainly concentrated in the Southern Los Angeles area. This law will reduce air pollution that causes asthma, lung disease and cancer.
What do you say? I say Bob Dylan was right 44 years ago -- the answer is blowin' in the wind...

bob dylan's music is a whole language unto itself! california's doing swell and doing the things that the bush administration should be doing!!! california's not any mere state -- it's the world's seventh largest economy! so even if the bushies refuse to do anything on global warming, others are acting and hopefully more will join. leave behind the jerks ruining the world and join the movement to protect the planet!!!

Hello Anonymous from Trinidad!
Salamat (thank you) sa support! Unfortunately, it looks like majority of the Californians need more education on this issue, the environment & their future --because it DID NOT pass the election...so that's another challenge we all look forward to bringing into fruition.
BAJENGGER--haha..comes from my nickname JENG...hope it does not mean anything negative in your language! haha.

that's still almost one million votes. i think the u.s. is headed in the right direction. the only problem is the shrub, and the democs pretending they're not shrubbies.

Many Thanks DORMAN from Zaire. Us has a very long way to go. True--if they couold forget politics for the more serious issues like the environment, then we can all get where we want to be.
