California Sort Of Maybe Unveils Their Own Green New Deal

I wonder if California’s version will never be voted on like the one submitted by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s, and if it is really less about ‘climate change’ and more about hardcore Progressive policies

New climate change initiative unveiled in Sacramento has far to go

California promises to remain a leader in the nation’s fight against climate change in 2020, starting the New Year with the launch of a statewide “Green New Deal.”

About a half dozen lawmakers gathered outside the Capitol building in Sacramento on Monday to unveil far-reaching legislation that seeks to create a thriving carbon-free economy while making sure California’s least fortunate residents benefit from the boom.

It presses for green jobs, affordable health care and debt-free education alongside, of course, a phasing-out of greenhouse gases.

“This is a big, ambitious bill, and it must be,” said Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Oakland, the primary author of the proposal, which he dubbed the California Green New Deal. “The danger of the climate crisis is limitless.”

The three-page bill, however, falls short of offering a clear path forward, remaining largely aspirational, and it doesn’t provide funding. Supporters will have to rely on follow-up legislation, which California is sure to have plenty of in 2020, to attain its objectives.

What, exactly, does free college education have to do with ‘climate change’? Besides, I though their cap and trade system and all the other legislation passed by the California general assembly fixed it all? No? It is apparently meant to fight homelessness, too. What I’m not finding is a link to the actual legislation or whatever it is.

    Just speculation but is there a chance that Climate Change is being used as a cover for some other agenda? And, this is really wild so bear with me, could it be that free stuff like college and housing are just verbal sops to gin up support among the terminal clueless?

    This is too cool.

    5 states face Federal lawsuit over inaccurate voter registrations. They are (I love the smell of schaudenfreude in the evening.) California, Colorado, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

    Supposedly, CA gave the Hildabeast her big win in the popular vote. Looks like Jeffery may be disappointed this year.

    Can’t wait for the screams of “Vote suppression!!!!”.

    PS Commie News Net settled with Nick Sandmann, how much is a secret (so it must have been a ton).

    Remember Jeffery telling us it was mean to criticize a 16 year old?

    Apparently, some 16 year olds are more equal than others.

      Judicial Watch files more lawsuits, Sibley.

      The daughter of a deceased Republican strategist that the New Yorker nicknamed “the master of the modern gerrymander” has released an enormous cache of files pertaining to his work. Thomas Hofeller was unparalleled in his ability to draw district maps, which he also trained others to do, ones that essentially guaranteed Republican control of local, state, and federal governments.

      Sibley, voter suppression, lawsuits, gerrymandering and foreign interference are the methods GOPhers are using to fight demographics. Good luck. It’s how a minority rules a majority, that is, until the minority installs a police state.

      The Sandmann is quite the snowflake. Ms. Thunberg seems much tougher and strong.

      That may not be schadenfreude you smell, ol’ Sibley.

    More than what, K? Your non sequiturs are risible in themselves, but, if you actually read, this is Federal lawsuits pursuant to a SCUS decision last year.

    Learn to read.

    No, that’s what the Demos have been doing for 50 years, but the graveyard vote is drying up and the majority 60+% of the electorate isn’t going to be cheated.

    Speaking of police states, that’s what Governor Blackface (D-KKK) is trying to install. Now he’s a minority trying to install a police state.

    Your little pre-digested aphorisms seem to be blowing back in your face.

    The Sandmann is quite the snowflake. Ms. Thunberg seems much tougher and strong.

    Yeah, she’s going back to Sverige to mend her damaged psyche, never to be heard from again. Nick Sandmann fought against Fake News and is winning!

    Some snowflake. He fought the Ministry of Propaganda and is winning!

    That may not be schadenfreude you smell, ol’ Sibley.

    I know. You need wear an extra set of Depends. Clean up after yourself.
