To the Editor:
With gas prices continually rising and California's air dirtier than ever, it is imperative that we act now to make lasting positive changes in our state's energy policy.
Currently less than 10 percent of our energy comes from renewable sources like wind and solar power. Senate Bill 532, currently languishing in the state Assembly, would rectify this situation by ensuring that at least 20 percent of our energy is generated by renewables.
California has the opportunity to lead the country from our dependence on oil both foreign and domestic. The positive effects of such a move will reach far beyond the borders of our state. A clean, responsible energy future is what both we and our children need.
