SACRAMENTO, Calif. Nov. 19, 2012 - At noon today the results of California's first auction under the cap-and-trade program were released. The following is a statement by California Air Resources Board Chairman Mary D. Nichols.
"The auction was a success and an important milestone for California as a leader in the global clean tech market. By putting a price on carbon, we can break our unhealthy dependence on fossil fuels and move at full speed toward a clean energy future. That means new jobs, cleaner water and air -- and a working model for other states, and the nation, to use as we gear up to fight climate change and make our economy more competitive and resilient."
