California’s Contradictory Messaging On Hotcoldwetdry

Here’s what the California General Assembly just did during their recent session

(Sacramento Bee) Lawmakers gave another decade of life to California’s cap-and-trade program, the centerpiece of the state’s effort to curb greenhouse gas emissions.

The measure passed with bipartisan support, ultimately costing Assembly Republican Leader Chad Mayes his job following an insurrection from party activists. Environmental justice groups, meanwhile, argued it was too generous to oil companies. They weren’t mollified by companion legislation to address toxic air around oil refineries.

OK, so they renewed the cap and tax scheme, of which no one really knows how the money is truly spent, and artificially increases the cost of business and the cost of living. Then this

After years of failed attempts to address much-needed road repairs across California, lawmakers voted to increase the gas tax to generate $5 billion a year.

Gas prices will rise 12 cents per gallon in November and 19.5 cents by 2020. Diesel taxes will increase 20 cents, and drivers will pay a new vehicle registration fee ranging from $25 to $175 depending on the value of their vehicles.

The money pays primarily for road repairs, not new or expanded highways, though some of it will also fund transit, parks and other projects.

So, again, raising the cost of business and the cost of living. But, consider, if fossil fueled vehicles are so evil in Warmist World, should they even be doing anything for roads? This entices people to drive those evil fossil fueled vehicles.

However, that brings up a related issue: illegal immigration. The cost is considered as high as $30 billion a year. Even if we cut that in half, think of what $15 billion could do for American citizens and those who are lawfully present. There would be no need to generate another $5 billion a year in higher taxes.

    To a white nationalist is there nothing that hunting down Mexicans WON’T cure? Even global warming?

    And your answer to cut fossil fuel use is to allow roads to deteriorate! Brilliant!

  2. Jeffery says:

    Deportists claim Mexicans cripple the economy, caused the drug epidemic, murder real Americans, rape our women, spread disease and now, they cause global warming. Is there no evil they can’t do?

    California and it’s counties and cities have already raised taxes and issued bonds numerous times to pay for road building and repairs, but it never seems to get done. The roads crumble more and the potholes grow bigger. After this, they’ll want taxes and fees raised for whatever next issue that they want to recycle, like schools or healthcare or prisons or senior diapers or mental health or water or clean power or … all the while the cost of pensions traded by politicians to unions for campaign funds outstrips all other costs and is projected to become over 100% in the 2020’s.

    And now a new twist on CA corruption:

    California lawmakers gave a boost to a union looking to organize Tesla workers Friday as they approved a plan to spend $1.5 billion on environmental initiatives using money from the state’s recently renewed program that charges polluters to emit greenhouse gases.

    Much of the environmental money will go toward pay for incentives and rebates to promote a cleaner vehicle fleet, including passenger cars, commercial trucks and port equipment.

    Up to $140 million is earmarked for rebates for people who buy clean vehicles, but that money comes with a catch. Under a provision requested by a labor union, state officials will have to certify that participating automakers are “fair and responsible in the treatment of their workers.”

    The provision comes as the United Auto Workers pursues an increasingly acrimonious drive to unionize thousands of workers who assemble high-end Tesla electric vehicles at a plant in Fremont. It directs the California Labor and Workforce Development Agency to come up with criteria for certifying that an automaker treats its employees fairly and responsibly.
