Local environmental activists are holding a meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 13, about Proposition 23, a statewide initiative that would freeze reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in California until unemployment drops to 2007 levels — essentially reversing the state's global warming statute. Prop. 23 will appear on the ballot for the Nov. 2 elections.
Former Menlo Park mayor Gail Slocum, who works for PG&E as an attorney on energy policy, said in a press release the initiative undermines the state's ability to attract investors in clean technology.
The meeting will start at 7 p.m. in the community room at the Menlo Park Library on Alma Street.
