Parallels between Australia, Assembly AB 32 revolt are obvious

One of the most universal findings in the social sciences has been the uniform way that humans at all stages of history have been for something that they think reflects well on them until they perceive that it costs them a dime.

You can read the whole article HERE at CalWatchDog.  Australia has end carbon taxes and California Pols are growing concerned the cost of AB-32 to poor and middle class families exceeds the benefits.  Not mentioned in the article is that South Korea has also taken action send its emission trading scheme.

In a sign that rejection of climate alarm is gathering momentum, South Korea has thrown doubt on its carbon plans. Significantly, the announcement was made the day after Australia abolished the carbon tax. According to the report;

“July 18 (Reuters) – South Korea’s finance minister has called its impending emissions trading market “flawed in many ways”, hinting that he would pressure other ministries to delay the planned 2015 launch, a local newspaper reported.
Choi Kyung-hwan, who is also deputy prime minister, said problems had been found with the scheme, which is due to start in January, and that the government would review them before deciding whether to delay it, modify it or implement it as planned, The Korea Times reported on Friday.”

My question is when will the voters of California take action to end the AB-32 fraud?  California business have to compete with the other nations in the Pacific Basin and they are not saddling their economies with policies base on bad science.  Why should California?  Yes, I know that we have idiot in charge of the government, but you are not an idiot right? Then do something call, e-mail your representatives and demand the repeal of all carbon taxes, as they are based bad science.   The Aussies and the South Korean are obviously smarter than Californian’s.
