Bummer: California To Kill Off Billions In Climate Change (scam) Spending

Look, Californian’s, if you really care, you’ll bite the bullet and just deal with the increased cost of living, increased taxes, and reduced services elsewhere

California’s budget cuts include canceling billions in climate change spending

California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s proposed budget cuts include canceling billions of dollars in climate change spending, a blow to environmental advocates who look to the state as a stopgap for the Trump administration’s weakening of federal protections.

In January, Newsom proposed a $12 billion “climate budget” that, over the next five years, would offer incentives for companies to convert to electric vehicles, give low-interest loans to businesses to clean up their practices and spend billions on projects preparing for floods, droughts and wildfires.

But Thursday, Newsom proposed eliminating most of the foundation for those programs to balance a budget that will have an estimated $54.3 billion deficit. The economic downturn has been brought by a statewide stay-at-home order to limit the spread of the coronavirus. The order has closed most businesses for two months, putting more than 4.5 million people out of work and sending state tax collections plummeting. (snip)

The Newsom administration says the cuts represent “unprecedented times” that have forced the state to “make sacrifices that we didn’t think six months ago we would have to do.” The administration chose to protect programs to clean up the air in disadvantaged communities and to provide safe drinking water.

So, spending money on real issues, rather than made up ones. Action on ‘climate change’ is popular when things are going well. Once the sh*t hits the fan, people don’t have the luxury of dealing with 1st World Issues.

    Oh really, Then how come he is cutting out helping to rebuild the water system in Paradise. 90% of the town burned to the ground a year and a half ago. They are still giving out drinking water in 5 gallon jugs because the water is not potable in many parts of town. The town does vote predominantly Republican, could this be why?
