Californians continue to strongly support their states efforts to reduce greenhouse gases until they find out it involves higher gasoline prices, according to a new poll released Wednesday.
The Public Policy Institute of Californias annual environmental survey also found majorities oppose the greater use of fracking for oil exploration (54 percent), increased offshore oil drilling (51 percent) and building more nuclear power plants (64 percent).
Californias cap-and-trade program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will include fuels as of Jan. 1. That has prompted an oil industry-backed campaign for a delay or repeal amid predictions that the cost of gas could rise by 15 cents or more per gallon.

The power of magical thinking. They want everything the think is wonderful, but not to pay for it.
Chunk up the change, commies!
Worth repeating (Austin liberal):
Its not because I dont like paying taxes, said Gardner, who attended both meetings. I have voted for every park, every library, all the school improvements, for light rail, for anything that will make this city better. But now I cant afford to live here anymore. Ill protest my appraisal notice, but thats not enough. Someone needs to step in and address the big picture.
Sorry, but if you want to believe junk science and fraud, you will have to ante up.
It should be painful to be this stupid.
Sounds like the road the nation traveled down when Obamacare was being formulated by the den of thieves in DC. “It’s free, so we want it!”
So now he's going to transport his liberal ass to other states and inflict them with his "votes."
No way to move FR's operations out of CA to somewhere in America, eh Jim?
And they don’t want to drive less either!
Or not heat their swimming pools
So this idiot is protesting the vote he cast in favor of raising his own cost of living? I’m sure he also spent time deriding anyone who disagreed with him as well.
