Although the faux science behind global warming alarmism has been amply exposed for its pretensions and errors, the warmists dont much care. They have their regulations in place.
They no longer have to resort to this tactic...
Gov. Jerry Brown has found a new pot of money to help him fill a $9-billion hole in his proposed budget: $1 billion from auctioning credits to allow California companies to emit greenhouse gases, reports todays Los Angeles Times.
And you thought it was about saving the planet? Its always been about money and control. Your money, their control. . .
Its about saving Jerry Browns red-ink stained budget.

I panicked when I saw the headline and then realized it was California. And then I said, “well, duh”.
Might as well be Greece as far as I’m concerned. And just as deserving.

Good! Seriously someone has to stand as an object lesson on what not to do. Rational argument doesn't work. So to save the other 49 some state has to go full bore green and fail in a drastic and comprehensive fashion. I had long feared it would be my home state of Illinois, so the fact that it is California brings me some relief.
Wisdom is learning from your mistakes, genius is learning from someone else's mistakes. The nation will need to gain one of the two before the green menace is consigned to the dustbin of history. Today the quest for hard earned wisdom begins in California.

I had exactly the same initial reaction... then I too realized... "ah.. of course.. it's only California."

(If it's "green" ... it's crap !!!)
9 billion dollar budget hole? Try closer to 49 billion dollar budget hole.
