Northern California is leveraging its forward-looking policies and innovative clean tech entrepreneurs to drive clean tech innovation and build the state's clean economy, with certain regions carving out specialized niches in the global clean tech sector, according to research from nonpartisan nonprofit Next 10.
The worldwide market for clean technologies will benefit from the historic pact between the U.S. and China to accelerate carbon emission reduction efforts. Northern California – already a leader in the state’s world-class clean economy – is well positioned to profit.
One of the truisms about American politics is that some voters are uninformed when they go to the polls. This can be especially true when voters face complex ballot measures, such as those going before Californians this year.
How do voters fill that information vacuum? One way is to look for cues from outside sources, like business groups, nonprofit organizations, labor unions, political parties and politicians.
Deciding which way to vote can be especially tricky in a year of heavily lopsided fundraising, when one side is spending a lot more money to get its message out. Take, for example, Props 1, 2, and 47 where supporters have spent millions more than opponents.
