California Power Play

Going green seems simple enough: You just set your mind to helping the environment and follow the three-step process of reduce, reuse, recycle, right? But this Los Angeles Times story underscores how difficult it can be to do the right thing, even when you mean well. The 87-year-old billionaire behind online-college behemoth University of Phoenix is pushing an alternative-energy ballot initiative in California that is opposed by seeming comrades-in-arms such as the Environmental Defense Fund and the American Wind Energy Association. Opponents say the act will be counterproductive to long-term progress in developing alternative energies; proponents claim there’s huge public support for it. California has a reputation as being one of the greenest states, so there may be a lot riding on how this plays out. Who’s right? Let us know, Californians and other interested parties.
