State Which Uses Lots Of Fossil Fuels Vows To Move State Off Fossil Fueled Electric Grid ‘Cause ‘Climate Change’

This is amusing

Let’s take a look

California’s assembly has voted to move the state’s electricity completely off fossil fuels.

The state assembly on Tuesday passed S.B. 100, a proposal to transition California to 100 percent emissions-free electricity sources by 2045. Amid heavy lobbying from environmentalists and other groups, the bill passed, 43 to 32.

The vote comes on the heels of a sobering report detailing the effects of climate change on the state. California stands to lose up to two-thirds of its beaches to erosion, and a similar portion of its water supply, depending on how quickly the world reduces greenhouse gas emissions, the report found. Average summer temperatures are set to rise between 5 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit, and the average area burned during yearly wildfires would increase 75 percent.

That report is beyond over the top in scaremongering.

Hawaii last year became the first U.S. state to commit to 100 percent clean energy. But a move by California, which is the most populated state in the union and the world’s fifth-largest economy, could be game-changing in moving the U.S. to a cleaner energy economy.

“California would really become a shining state in terms of creating a real example for the rest of the country to look toward for creating an alternative to fossil fuels and having a healthy, growing economy,” said Dan Jacobson, state director for Environment California, which supports the bill.

Interestingly, what they’re aiming at is natural gas, for which California gets 49% of its power from. But, um, what of the massive use of fossil fuels that powers all the limos, private jets, and big SUVs for the celebrities and politicians, and all the little people cars, not too mention all the state, county, and local fleets of FF vehicles? And, how about all the FF airplanes that fly in to California, bringing supplies and tourists? Will those be banned?

Anyway, if they do make this happen, it will be amusing watching the complaints from Californians as they deal with rolling brownouts and blackouts.

    So what are the odds between rolling blackouts and pious hypocrisy?

  2. Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

    In 2017, California imported roughly 30% of its electricity generation, according to state data. …

    I left at just the right time. After this, the exit roads will be too crowded.

    I suppose if they build a bunch of new nuclear plants they’ll be just fine.

    But they won’t…

    …and they’ll find out that their planned unicorn fart fueled power plants won’t work because unicorns don’t fart.

      Nuclear isn’t “clean energy” in the minds of the left, so as you said, that ain’t happening.
      So it’ll have to be unicorn farts.
      In the meantime, they’ll resort to ever-increasing energy use regulations to suppress consumer use of electricity. And they’ll try to control all air-conditioner use with their smart meters.
      They’ll tell us when we can do laundry, and set more and more egregious pricing tiers to keep us from straining their fragile eco-grid. They’ll tell us when we can charge our E-cars…oh wait, they’re going to have an aneurysm over that cognitive dissonance…
