Damned if you do, Damned if you don't...

State Rep Ira Ruskin teams up with Environment California's Charlotte Glennie in an oped in today's Palo Alto Daily News in which they call out Arnold for his lack of leadership on green energy.

They claim that with "more substantial and tenacious leadership at the state level," we can create 200,000 new jobs in the clean energy sector.

What they are really miffed at the governor about is his veto of SB 14 and AB 64, which would have written the 33% RPS standard into law. Recall that Arnold did mandate 33% by Executive Order but that does nothing to placate Ruskin and Glennie.
