By | May 01, 2006
The California Energy Alternatives Program (CALEAP), an organization of scientists, economists and others looking to reduce the state's fossil fuels dependence, has proposed a statewide voter initiative called the Clean Alternative Energy Act for the November 2006 general election ballot. The initiative calls for a 25 percent reduction in gasoline use in California, possibly with flexible fuel vehicles, according to Daniel Kammen, director of the Renewable and Appropriate Energy Lab at the University of California, Berkeley.
