Mack students campaign against Prop. 23

Through the Oaktown Teen Times, an award-winning Oakland student newspaper, I found this video of McClymonds High School students — who have been active in West Oakland air quality issues — taking a stand against Proposition 23. If the state ballot measure passes tomorrow, the implementation of California’s landmark global warming legislation will be suspended. The air pollution law, which Gov. Schwarzenegger signed in 2006, requires companies to report and reduce major greenhouse gas emissions.
