Schwarzenegger Blasts Oil Companies Schwarzenegger Blasts Oil Companies | KQED's Climate Watch California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger used his appearance at the Commonwealth Club in Santa Clara today to "put a spotlight" on what he called the "self-serving greed" of oil companies Valero, Tesoro, and Koch Industries... "They are creating a shell argument that this is about saving jobs," said Schwarzenegger. "Does anyone really believe that these companies, out of their black-oil hearts are really spending millions and millions of dollars to protect jobs? It's not about jobs at all. It's about their ability to pollute and thus protect their profits." He said that green jobs in California have grown ten times faster than the statewide average since 2005, and that they now comprise the single largest source of jobs in the state. Passing Prop. 23, would kill investment in the strongest sector of California's economy, said the Governor. Proponents of the ballot measure claim that allowing AB 32 to be fully implemented would drive businesses from the state and could potentially cost the state more than a million jobs, a figure which has been challenged in several studies. Do you expect this measure to fail or succeed in November?
