Prop 23, AB 32 and the California Politics of Global Warming

Hosted by

Proposition 23 on the November ballot has divided California's business community between those who make and depend on fossil fuels and those who hope to profit from the green economy. How long would it delay the state's effort to limit greenhouse gases? How many jobs would be lost in the short term? Why is Prop 23 posing particular problems for Republican candidates running statewide? Also, the LAPD and community opposition, from Gates to Bratton to Beck. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, the run on Kabul Bank in Afghanistan raises a disturbing question: what if government corruption is more dangerous than the Taliban?
