Bummer: California Won’t Meet It’s Climate Goals Unless People Are Forced To Live Like Rats In Warrens

Well, now, this is interesting

California won’t meet its climate change goals without a lot more housing density in its cities

To meet the bold new climate change goals put in place last year, California will work to put millions of electric cars on the road, revolutionize its dairy industry and generate half of all power from solar panels and other renewable sources.

But those efforts will come up short, warn state regulators, without dramatic changes to how Californians live and travel.

I’m shocked that people will be forced to make changes to their lives by Governmental decree

The state has pledged to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030. To do so, Southern Californians will have to drive nearly 12% less by that date than they did five years ago, cutting their miles on the road every day from 22.8 to 20.2, according a Los Angeles Times estimate based on data from state and regional climate and planning officials.

These driving reductions mean that Californians will have to walk, bike and use mass transit much more frequently than they do now. By 2030, residents will have to travel by foot four times more frequently than they did in 2012, alongside a nine-fold increase in bicycling over the same time, and a substantial boost in bus and rail ridership, climate officials say.

The only way this happens is by the force of government. If all these uber-Warmist Californians refuse to practice what they preach now, force is the only option.

Getting people out of their cars in favor of walking, cycling or riding mass transit will require the development of new, closely packed housing near jobs and commercial centers at a rate not seen in the United States since at least before World War II, according to a recent study by permit and contractor data analysis website BuildZoom.

So, people will be forced into these high density housing how, exactly? It’s funny how so much of what the Cult of Climstrology pushes revolves around limiting freedom of behavior while forcing people into high density areas where it is easier to control them.

    Climate ghettos… it’s the only way!

    Climate change is a way to change and force compliance to Agenda 21.

    So they are going to put them in Ohio?

    California can only meet their goals if California stops producing anything. The only way to overhaul their dairy industry is to get their milk from Wisconsin. And get their electricity from Nevada and Arizona.

    I am all for them voting themselves into poverty as long as they don’t tax me to support them.

    All of the officials involved in this agenda should lead the way into walking more, biking more and being the first residents of dense pack central. but they are Gore clones who tell others how to live while traveling on their private jets.

  5. jl says:

    What’s even funnier is that even if their “goals” are met it won’t change a thing.

  6. Kolrado says:

    They could send millions of Mexicans home and get them off the road which should get them to their goal in a week or so instead of letting them flood the state

    The weird thing is that tomorrow, Los Angeles voters will vote on “Measure S,” which will ban the changing of zoning for two years. That means no new developments and the rise of housing prices to the point where middle and low income families cannot afford them.

    Instead of creating urban spaces with jobs nearby, the measure will force people out of the city and require more energy to get to and from work.
