IN THIS ISSUE:
Chuck DeVore featured on NOVA's The Big Energy Gamble



Last night one of America's longest running television shows, PBS's NOVA, detailed California's landmark 2006 law, AB 32, and its aggressive mandate to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent in 11 years.

Regardless of your opinion about global warming, the fact is that California embarked on a risky course of action in 2006, betting that massive government intervention into the energy markets can reduce greenhouse gas emissions without harming the economy. President Obama is committed to following California's lead.

The NOVA episode, appropriately named, "California's Big Energy Gamble," prominently features California State Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, a candidate for U.S. Senate in 2010 against Barbara Boxer. DeVore says that modern nuclear power is the only way we can produce enough low-emission, reliable, and affordable power to meet our massive greenhouse gas reduction goals. NOVA also shows new Energy Secretary Nobel Prize winning Dr. Steven Chu in full agreement with DeVore regarding the need for modern nuclear power.

Unfortunately, Sen. Barbara Boxer continues to throw up roadblocks to America's use of this safe, clean and effective domestic energy source. Chuck DeVore agrees with America's new Energy Secretary: we need modern nuclear power if we are to power our nation into the future.
