A stimulus shock over electric car is the project different houses -- charges faces six states needs to jump itself.
At least an -- where zero of the plan 11100 public stations have even been installed.
And it's about a hundred million dollars -- stimulus money paying for -- still work to grains as my next guest.
So the former mayor of San Francisco County.
Lieutenant governor -- the holes state of California Gavin Newsom lieutenant governor good to have you.
Good to be here thanks -- his -- green thing in trouble.
Quite the contrary in fact in California.
-- to stay between 1995 and 2006 the green economy grew at 56.
Percent the overall economy at 18% just the last two years in this depth of the economic recession green collar jobs grew three times array of overall job growth -- What's happening -- -- -- this and then why is none of the money you're getting you're gonna doing the job.
Sounds like some bureaucratic incompetence a lot of finger pointing and excuse making I mean here in San Francisco as you said former mayor San Francisco.
We're trying to lead not just this state but this nation and building -- -- ubiquitous infrastructure.
For electric vehicles the -- -- to have standardized charging stations and were rolling out I know just in this city ripe for a left wing announced over a hundred charge stations.
That will be in place it just the next few months including interestingly -- The first battery powered switch stations the idea of actually taking a battery out of a car less find that it takes -- Fill up a tank of gas will be a first taxi -- in the country that'll run purely on.
Like you -- -- still believe that uncertainty where -- governor that maybe people are stepping back from this is that volume of the goals meritorious.
Couple meditative -- the plugging in the stations and -- and of people are saying you know.
Don't need it not now I'm not have.
Now just the opposite I mean the whole issue concern around electric vehicles as range anxiety of course we'd have that same range anxiety if we don't have gas stations everywhere.
So it's -- same principle building electric vehicle.
And charging stations you've got fast charging now you can do it at home I'm like gas stations you don't have a gas station and all -- you can pump overnight so to speak and self.
I believe and that you're seeing real leadership in cities large and small across the country in municipal fleets and now we're seeing with the Nissan leaf and Chevy -- -- All these but got and is coming out you're getting it kicked in the -- from this plan.
That that just won't dying to charge folks by the miles so even if you have a fuel efficient vehicle.
You're still think -- -- -- that viewed as a California no better than many how far a lot of your Californian.
Drivers drive and and that would -- whether they have one of these plug in cars or -- That for ten years electric car I get to zoom right by at a gas stations.
So you as everybody everybody -- I -- I got an -- tonight a mile governor it's a moot point.
That's not somewhere promoted out here in California I know it's on life support somewhere.
In Washington and in terms of the way folks are used as a deadly shooting and it went dead yesterday and you know or -- -- -- in and a different direction we've got AB 32 were moving towards -- economy low carbon green growth.
California's leadership has been demonstrated we're about to get really go on in the next few years.
On T think there's something going on in this district -- to Craig -- -- Republican -- seems to be catching fire.
On views that are well Republican conservatives in and it's enormously democratic.
Districts that are you where it.
Now I mean you know yes and now look at the end of the day I'm a Democrat were in control we've got the governor's office we've got all the constitutional offices the assembly in the senate.
We got to perform so.
You know I'm not adjusted and who's to blame in terms of economic -- I agree.
-- price point the economy's the number one challenge we face outside these deficits and unfunded liabilities but it.
We got to perform an Intel we demonstrate our capacity to do that in this state that always be concerned but I'm not concerned about that district -- three strong.
Democrats running against each other they split the vote he snuck in there I want be too concerned that that's gonna turn -- Armed I'd be remiss and aren't thrown just -- -- out here but the whole Arnold Schwarzenegger.
He's surprised what do you make of that -- contact one of them.
What I -- I haven't been Maria -- drivers -- good friend and I worked closely with Arnold even as -- even though he was a different party it's sad just in terms of human.
Aside -- this and you know like everything you don't know what's really happen every day there's something new to learn but -- -- -- again and instead of casting aspersions it's important that.
Remember there's real human beings here innocent folks real.
Real lives and so I just I wish everybody the best it's frustrating and I know attend -- play these things out and they they have a lifespan and hopefully this.
Well will be a shorter lifespan -- most so we can move back to more important discussions all right Don -- lieutenant governor thank you -- Vermont's could have him.
