We all know Bill Gates is a philanthropist — he’s got so much money it must be a blast for him to give it away to good causes. Well, he’s added one more to the list: Maplight.org recently reported that he gave $700,000 to the fight against California Proposition 23. If passed, Proposition 23 will repeal California’s law — called AB 32 for short– meant to curb global warming. The proposition supporters are hoping to repeal the law because they feel it is curbing the creation of new jobs. Didn’t someone tell them that new technology and innovation fuels the job market? Californians: you better be reading this and get your butts to the ballot box on the 2nd!
