Using Pension Funds to Save the World

Here's a good example of why the rightwing wants to kill social investing by public pension funds

CalPERS targets emissions: Automakers, utilities and others face questions on global-warming actions.

The trustees of California's state pension system have launched a campaign to force companies they invest with to reveal what they are doing to curb the emissions that cause global warming. Conservatives of course think ignorance is bliss, so the less we pay attention to such matters, the safer we are. Kind of like Bush's approach to terrorism before 911.
