Could Calif. become a center for green jobs?


Officials at UC Davis hosted a panel to address that question, and California's governor responded with an enthusiastic "yes."

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger touted AB 32, which requires the state to cut carbon emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, or about 15 percent. Opponents are trying to kill it with a ballot measure.

Here's what The Sacramento Bee wrote on the Davis event. We at the San Joaquin Valley Clean Energy Organization have been following the AB 32 issue closely.

The San Joaquin Valley Clean Energy Organization is a nonprofit dedicated to improving our region's quality of life by increasing its production and use of clean energy. The SJVCEO works with cities and counties and public and private organizations to demonstrate the benefits of energy efficiency and renewable energy throughout the eight-county region of the San Joaquin Valley.

We have high hopes to see some more green jobs in near future as well.

David, We're seeing them arrive, although not as quickly as we had hoped. Most of what we're seeing is in energy efficiency. Solar installations are picking up as well.
