Cap and Trade in California?

So, Jerry Brown is pushing a “cap and trade” deal in order to continue the fight against “Global Warming”.

HUH??? I remember a time when California was considered “trend-setting”, “cutting edge”….maybe I was just dreaming…

Evidently unable to get out of “stuck on stupid” mode, Governor-elect Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown continues to blindly worship at the “Global Warming” altar; never mind that Liberals don’t even call it “Global Warming” anymore, preferring the throw-everything-against-the-wall-and-see-what-sticks “Global Climate Change” drivel.

Don’t Californians remember the news about all the falsified “Global Warming” data, which has fundamentally laid Global Warming to waste?

Or, more locally, don’t Californians remember the San Francisco Chronicle (bastion of Conservative thought…..NOT), where the fact that the deeply-respected Air Resources Board “overestimated” pollution levels by a whopping 340% was reported (no particular stranger to dubious findings, this supposed error came after the same board also found a death rate of 18,000 per year from particulate matter…a number later cut in half when it was discovered that the person responsible for the report had falsified his credentials…).

But, no, Californians have very short memories, as evidenced by the fact that they re-elected Brown. And, it must be assumed, Global Warming fanatics continue to get mileage (mostly out of politicians, since the public has largely abandoned the myth) out of Global Warming fear-mongering.

So….it’ll be “IN” with cap ‘n trade and “OUT” with more businesses.

Royko was right….California IS “the world’s largest outdoor mental asylum” (the guy who coined Brown “Governor Moonbeam”, went on to say, “…if it babbles and its eyeballs are glazed, it probably comes from California.”
