This made me laugh.

As I have said I want to keep you up-to-date on the battle to stop the dirty energy prop, so here’s this week’s best bit yet: Yesterday the Texas oil companies behind Prop 23 won a minor victory in the courts on the language used in November’s ballot to explain their job-killing initiative.

They changed some language like “major polluters” to “major sources of emissions” and other weasel words to try to downgrade how voters will understand Prop 23. And their lawyer actually said to the judge “truth is not the test” in summing up their argument.

But as Jane Warner, the head of American Lung Association, the smogbusters par excellence, said: ” Prop. 23 will result in more air pollution and kill hundreds of thousands of jobs and billions in economic investments.” I am with her – these polluters can’t hoodwink us. The truth will be the test on election day.
