SAN FRANCISCO -- Gov. Jerry Brown railed this morning against politicians who doubt climate change, calling "political lemmings" the chief obstacle in combating global warming.
"The main thing we have to deal with in climate change is the skepticism, the denial and the cult-like behavior of the political lemmings that would take us over the cliff," Brown said at a high-profile conference on climate change at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.
The Democratic governor said climate change has lengthened the state's fire season and quickened its snowmelt, affecting agriculture and taxing public infrastructure.
He acknowledged that Californians have been "squeezed" by the flagging economy, but he said investment is necessary . . .

Jerry, Lemmings blindly run off a cliff; kinda like you blindly chasing the AGW hogwash inspite of mounting evidence against it.
That's like Hitler calling Moses anti-semetic!
Whassat, Gov Moonbeam?
The apocalyptic AGW cult is the lemming-like entity in this debate.
Speaking of affecting agriculture, how about letting the farmers have water Gov Moonbeam?
“Remember subjects of Kalifornia, the Truth and Science mean nothing. Common sense was outlawed years ago. How we laugh at the primitive ways of the past. What you observe means nothing. Only what is told to you by the government is true! sieg heil!
Are you going to believe your own lying eyes and your imperfect brains, or your glorious leaders who mean to bring you a worker's paradise? Think of what it would be like to aspire to the heights of civilization like we had under Stalin, PolPot, and Ceausescu! They built a perfect utopia on Earth and capitalism destroyed it!
Today California, tomorrow the World!!!!!!!!”
Brown shows himself to be a liar AND a fool
Typical Leftie projection!
Moonbeam Brown was a dumbA$$ in the seventies and, unlike a fine wine, has not improved with age.
His solution to the freeway congestion back then was promoting a lower population in California by blocking additional lanes/routes, because it was OBVIOUS to him that “..if we DON’T build them ,they won’t come”. That worked REAL well and we are STILL paying the price for THAT particular stupidity.
Now, his moronic followers are trumpeting his drop in the bucket attempts to rein in the very public employee pension that HE personally set on fire during his last reign.
It doesn’t matter what new evidence of crooked data used by the warmists is revealed, the opportunity to expand control is WAY too golden for the likes of the Browns, Schwartzentraitor, Peolsi, Reid, Ob, et al to pass up.
Maybe this is part of the new leftist doublespeak.
For example, when leftists propose a wildly radical change, with untested and unproven, or even disproved socialist ideas, they bitterly accuse those who are *opposed* to their radical change as being “radicals”. With expressions such as “radical conservatives”, a ridiculous oxymoron.
So what Jerry Brown has done is to call those who *don’t* want to act like lemmings, jumping off the cliff with expensive, and generally worthless, radical environmentalist ideas, “lemmings”, as if by *not* being a radical, it somehow makes them “radical”.
But liberals have long seemed very confused about such things, calling radical socialist agitators advocating violence, “moderate activists”, and things like that.
hey Jerry ! why don’t you sacrifice a few babies to your green god? it worked for the Inca’s !
These people are pagan’s pure and simple.
Oh, this is rich. Old Jerry talking about lemmings. A weasel talking about lemmings. Good one, Jer. Have you been singing “Ben” again? A love song to rats.
“Ben, the ice is melting at the pole.
We need more people on the dole.
If you ever look behind
And Barney Frank’s what you find
There’s something you should know
Barney wants a blow
You beat me to it. Exactly nothing but left wing extremist projection, at it’s finest.
He did that years ago and the brain-dead liberal voters here in CA re-elected him anyway. Stop the world, I want to get off...
Yeah, while that's true, you really should give him credit for the great job he did in making the city of Oakland what it is today.
(Do I really need a /sarcasm tag after that statement?)
Pot, meet Kettle.
Jerry makes rocks look smart.
Exactly. If there’s a lemming connection to be made here, it would be the looney global warming Left.
Man made global warming being debunked, good old Jerry damns us for not joining him on his trek to the worker’s paradise.
As a professional scientist, I recall learning that it is the very best part of the scientific method that hypotheses are developed by unbiased and careful observation, then rigorously tested; and, further testing is always welcome (and invited).
Polical correctness for what arguably does not qualify as an hypothesis is the precise opposite of the scientific method.
I'm embarrased that so many of my fellow "scientists" (and others who should know better) are unwilling to be professional regarding this critical topic
embarrased = embarrassed (embarrassing mistake)
