Well it looks like AB32, California’s attempt to cure anthropogenic global warming all by itself, may have it’s head on the chopping block. Unemployment is bad, many businesses are leaving he state or thinking about it, yet the “Governator,” Arnold Schwarznegger, our buffoons in the state legislature and the imbeciles at CARB apparently think we can cure global warming all by ourselves. They even base their “stuff” on studies done my some dude with a phony degree (talk about weird science).
People must be really ticked-off about this. It got double, yes double, the signatures required to place this on the state ballot this coming November. People obviously see though Jerry Brown’s feeble attempt to quash this by naming the initiative “Suspends Air Pollution Control Laws Requiring Major Polluters to Report and Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions That Cause Global Warming Until Unemployment Drops Below Specified Level for Full Year.” (Now that’s a mouth full). Please remember “Governor Moonbeam” (his nickname last time he was governor) at election time. He should retire from what amounts to about a lifetime on the government tit.
It would appear that no one in the Senate or House of Representatives in Washington, DC will be doing anything anytime soon, the Australian Government has dropped the issue (a little thing called I want to be re-elected), there are serious doubts that the United Nations will be getting any kind of agreements for years, but good old California keeps on plugging along, we’re going to stop global warming all by ourselves, even if it bankrupts the state and drives up unemployment. This sounds like Alfred Hitchcock’s take on the “can do” attitude to me.
Just never you mind that on some days 25% of Los Angeles’ smog comes from China (read here). Nothing we do will change that. I’m not going over it all again, but CO2 driven global warming isn’t proven. It’s not even likely it causes much, if any warming at all. You can read it all over the internet if you’re so inclined. If you’re not you’re probably a “warmer” anyway.
If you want to read more here’s some links.
Kill Carb has a lot of information on the smog Nazis in Kalifornia.
The Sacramento Bee has an interesting article on unemployment plus a chart you can play with and see how it’s been growing.
I hope this passes, or California is going to be DOA so bad it will make the situation in Greece look like they’re rolling in money.
