Gov Brown and CARB Expanding Effort to Destroy State’s Economy

The LA Times has some details:

And although California already has some of the strictest pollution regulations in the country, Nichols is helping to lay the groundwork for more.

“It’s on people’s minds right now,” Nichols said. “While the momentum is strong is the right time to act.”

State lawmakers are discussing further rules on pollutants such as methane, setting new emissions goals for the decades ahead and increasing the efficiency of moving water around the state. New policies from the Obama administration, intended to reduce pollution from power plants, could also create opportunities for Nichols to partner with other states.

“Climate change is the biggest issue our generation has ever faced. And she’s the person leading the way to find the best solution,” said Carol Browner, a former environmental advisor to President Obama.

[Gov.] Brown has signaled his desire for new climate-change initiatives, and his partnership with Nichols dates to the 1970s, when he made her chair of the Air Resources Board for much of his first two terms as governor.

When examining the global warming movement one soon discovers it was never about saving the plant from climate change, it always about wealth distributions with climate change as the emotional driver to justify stealing from the rich and giving it to the poor, after raking some off the top.

In California’s it has always been about filling the political slush funds the Democrats need to buy votes, insuring their power in Sacramento.  AB32 funds are not being use to reduce CO2, but rather to fund Democrat favored projects, including the slow speed, high speed rail to now where. housing in poor neighborhoods and a plethora of smaller vote buying projects.

Discovering how easy it was steal from the wealthy with AB-32, with the cooperation the states low information voters, Governor Brown and his environmental thugs at CARB have decided there is still some wealth on the table to be taken. The consequences of this wealth grab is that businesses will continue to leave the state seeking lower cost energy and less regulatory friction.

Who will be hurt the most? The poor who will not have jobs, but will be totally dependent on the government hand outs, which is what the Democrats need, compliant low information voters.

Oh, no global warming for the last 18 years:

      Love this quote in the article

      “This is a newer type of science that we’re doing,”

      What type of science is that? Science fraud?

        We have three more days of free market gasoline prices, then look out! The people will be subject to the real world manifestation of the “global Warming hoax” and they will not like it much. The poor of California, trying to survive, will now get a up close and personal view of those leftist saviors they voted for in such large numbers. Happy New Year!

    Russ: You have a golden nugget of truth in this article. “When examining the global warming movement one soon discovers it was never about saving the plant from climate change, it always about wealth distributions with climate change as the emotional driver to justify stealing from the rich and giving it to the poor, after raking some off the top.”

    California once led the USA and the world…now California has become the punchline to a bad joke outside of the west coast. It is sad to me, but voters do not really pay attention until the fit its the shan. Once the facade fails, voters will be looking for solutions and they will be looking to conservatives. I am an eternal optimist. There is a newspaper hanging on the wall in my office from the very early 20th century. The headline reads that Republicans win every single seat in the California Senate (there is also an add for the Owl Tavern!). I bet that 100-plus years ago Democrats in California thought that they would be lost in the woods forever. Nothing is permanent and what goes around comes around. Always has, always will.

    AB-32 will be the law that causes the “coming around.” Keep up the good work Russ! Happy New Year my dear friend.

    Russ,
    Those are lovely blooming trees pictured at the top of your website. Yet you have snow “falling” on them via a feature on the WordPress blog. You are confusing the seasons. Happy New Year!
