Bummer: California’s Climate Scam Plan Pleases Few

They should have asked me. It would start with requiring all state government operations to stop using fossil fuels. For the first year this would apply to all elected state officials, their staffs, and appointed positions. And they cannot turn the heat up higher than 65 or the AC below 82. After that, we’ll start applying it to other state government functions. And to anyone who voted Democrat

California plan to combat climate change pleases few

electric vehicleHeat waves and drought gripping California highlight the urgency to slash fossil fuel use and remove planet-warming emissions from the air, a top state official said Thursday during discussions of a new plan for the state to reach its climate goals.

“I think every single Californian today knows that we’re living through a climate emergency,” said Jared Blumenfeld, secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency.

He spoke as the California Air Resources Board opened a hearing on a plan for the nation’s most populous state to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045. That means the state would remove as much carbon from the air as it emits. The timeline is among the most ambitious in the nation and in the world, but few who offered public comment were happy with the state’s plan for reaching that milestone.

Environmental groups, academics, and people who live in heavily polluted neighborhoods said the plan doesn’t do enough to reduce the production or use of fossil fuels. Some business, industry and labor groups, meanwhile, said the transition could raise prices and hurt workers.

Hey, perhaps we can include all these people in the first year of forbidding them from using fossil fuels to travel.

Critics from environmental groups say California’s plan doesn’t call for deep enough emissions cuts and relies too heavily on unproven and energy intensive carbon capture and removal. The concerns about such technology track with global concerns about the best way to tackle emissions goals.

So, basically it’s dependent on unicorn farts and pixie dust?

The meeting grew tense in the mid-afternoon as environmental justice advocates who had been rallying outside walked into the hearing room and began singing and chanting over a speaker representing business interests. The air board briefly paused the meeting as chants protesting the use of fossil fuels continued.

Oh, look, more people to include in the first year plan.

    Half of Califormia is a DESSERT that has been turned into an OASIS by drawing 40 percent of the water from the colorado river that WAS NEVER EVER intended to serve 100 million people…aka, NEVADA, COLORADO, WYOMING, UTAH, ARIZONA and California and I’m probably missing a few other states.

    When the treaty was drafted in the early 1900’s there were 3 million customers in California. Now there are 45 million and everyone’s screaming AGW cause there is a water shortage with most of that water going to a DESSERT(Southern California and PHOENIX) to assuage self-centered people demanding the rest of the fuking world bow to THEIR interests so they can keep living in their socialist world.

    DC, add Mexico to your list, they get what’s left.
    The Colorado River is way down and Lake Meade is essentially dry, so none of that ‘Green Energy’ is going to Las Vegas or Cali. Building in a desert isn’t that great an idea.
    Meanwhile, while no one was looking, Team Stumbles&Mumbles approved the demolition of 4 hydo dams in the Northwest, refused to re-permit a nuke plant in FL and axed a refinery in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Most of this only appeared in trade publications or financial publications. The DNC’s propaganda dept. made no mention of it, so the Great Unwashed is unawares.
