Guv Brown uses “Climate Change” to Create Totalitarian State—Government in Total Charge of Your Life!!

Jerry Brown is your old fashioned, European totalitarian, a dictator that does not believe in freedom.  He is using as the excuse to control your life the canard of “Climate Change”, the scam that made Al Gore one of the richest men in America and killed the hopes and dreams of tens of millions American.  What does Brown want to do?

“California Governor Brown’s SB 32 law requiring the state to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to levels 40% below levels measured in 1990 is necessitating the development of massive numbers of new regulations and policy that will allow the state government to control and dictate virtually every aspect of Californian’s lives including:

  • where and how they can live,

  • what kind of jobs and businesses they can work in,

  • what kind of housing they can have,

  • what kind of car they can drive (if any),

  • how many miles can they drive,

  • what kind of public transportation they must use,

  • how many times they must walk and bicycle,

  • how much and what kind of energy they can use,

  • what kind and how food can be farmed,”

Can you think of any reason to work, get an education, think?  This is a Fascist/totalitarian utopia—but who will pay for it?  Like the Uptopian colonies in the 19th century, it will fail since there is no reason to work or create—land will go fallow, new businesses will not start, people will no longer travel, wonderful food not cooked—it will be little different than a Soviet prison camp—all using climate change as the excuse to imprison a whole society.  Ready for it?

California Governor Brown imposing massive regulations for meaningless climate goals

Guest essay by Larry Hamlin, Whats Up with That,  5/18/17

California Governor Brown’s SB 32 law requiring the state to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to levels 40% below levels measured in 1990 is necessitating the development of massive numbers of new regulations and policy that will allow the state government to control and dictate virtually every aspect of Californian’s lives including:

  • where and how they can live,
  • what kind of jobs and businesses they can work in,
  • what kind of housing they can have,
  • what kind of car they can drive (if any),
  • how many miles can they drive,
  • what kind of public transportation they must use,
  • how many times they must walk and bicycle,
  • how much and what kind of energy they can use,
  • what kind and how food can be farmed,

etc, etc.

The AB 32 year 2020 greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets (year 2020 levels reduced to year 1990 measured levels) could be achieved by primarily addressing electricity generation and industrial sector greenhouse gas emission reduction efforts through increased use of renewable energy, energy efficiency and fuel substitution efforts.

But the SB 32 emission targets are so absurdly set that every aspect of Californian’s lives must be dictated and controlled to achieve Governor Brown’s ludicrous climate alarmist driven goals.

The largest single source of the states greenhouse gas emissions by far and away is the transportation sector (37%) with the industrial sector second (24%) , instate electricity generation third (12%) and import electricity generation and agriculture tied at fourth (8%).

The massive escalation in the states greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets between SB 32 versus AB 32 is huge with the reduced emissions target level declining from AB 32 levels of 431 million metric tons in 2020 to SB 32 levels of 259 million metric tons in 2030.

This huge escalation in emissions reduction as well as the shorter time period for accomplishing the reduction to achieve California’s 2030 greenhouse gas emissions goal means that every sector of the states economic activity will be mandated to undertake unprecedented, hugely costly and far reaching measures to contribute toward trying to meet these politically contrived requirements.

But what does the impact of California’s massive new government bureaucracy and costly effort to achieve its SB 32 emissions reduction goals mean relative to the global greenhouse gas emissions levels?

The 2016 EIA IEO report documents that global CO2 emissions in 2030 are forecast to be 39,103 million metric tons of CO2 with these emissions levels dominated by the developing nations lead by China and India.

California’s greenhouse gas emissions are comprised of about 84% CO2 which means that the reduction of CO2 between SB32 and AB 32 is about 144 million metric tons of CO2 by year 2030.

Thus the California SB 32 CO2 reduction target is less than 0.4% of the global CO2 emissions EIA forecasts for year 2030 which is truly trivial and insignificant. This level of reduced emissions has no meaningful impact whatsoever at a global scale.

Those attempting to argue that other countries will follow California’s lead in emissions reduction are completely out of touch with reality with what the world’s largest and fastest growing emissions countries are now doing regarding the increased use of coal fuel on a global basis.

China is now generating electricity using coal fuel at record high levels and in addition is engaging in efforts with other countries such as Pakistan to build large numbers of coal plants in that country.

China also has an on-going global strategy based on building coal power and was involved in 240 coal power projects in 65 countries between 2001 and 2016.

India is going forward with large numbers of new coal plants and completely ignoring any voluntary emissions reduction commitment discussed under the Paris agreement.

A new paper concludes  that India will rely upon use of coal fuel as its energy mainstay for the next 30 years.

Additionally both China and India increasingly dominate ownership of coal reserves  with 117 companies identified producing 3 billion tons of coal a year with 150 billion tons of coal in reserves.

Africa has announced plans for building more than 100 new coal plants to address its severe energy shortages that are contributing to the dismal economic condition of many of its countries.

The idea that many other world countries that desire high energy growth using coal fuel regardless of the greenhouse gas emission levels are going to abandon their enormous existing use and future growth of coal fuel because of California’s ridiculous climate alarmist driven schemes is totally absurd.

A recent series of articles in the L. A. Times outlined the massive regulatory and policy change impacts that SB 32 will impose upon the people of California here, here, and here.

In these articles extraordinary admissions are noted from the states leaders about the complete lack of knowledge, expertise and experience of the state government needed to achieve these escalated emissions goals demonstrating that these leaders are cavalierly plunging ahead with SB 32 politically driven emissions reduction mandates:

without regard to the massive economic consequences,

without clear understanding of how these emission levels can be achieved,

without comprehensive communication to the 37 million people of California whose existing lives and futures will be ripped apart by the demands imposed by these goals and

without any mention of the global irrelevance and meaningless of the outcome of achieving these state emission reduction goals.

The state governments monumental arrogance in moving forward with SB 32 is characterized in the following observations contained in the Times articles:

Serious concerns about the economic damage the states emissions goals could create were noted in the Times articles as well:

State Senate leader Kevin de Leon’s quote in a recent article captures an astounding display of climate alarmist elitism that shrugs off as unimportant the huge yet unknown impacts of the states emission mandates on its 37 million residents.

The state doesn’t know what it’s doing but Senate leader Kevin de Leon has decided “The debate is over”.

The Times articles address how SB 32 emissions goals will have dramatic impacts mandating increased housing density and significantly decreased motor vehicle use in California requiring many tens of billions of dollars in expenditures across the state to accomplish.

The Times articles further address the unknowns and uncertainty regarding how the huge reductions in driving miles and transportation emissions related required decreases can be achieved.

The states agricultural industry will also be dramatically impacted by SB 32 mandates as noted in the Times articles.

Perhaps the most ridiculous and absurd comment regarding the value of the SB 32 emission reduction mandates contained in the Times articles was the following:

How can any rational person credibly claim that China, India and other energy hungry developing nations of the world are going to “export” the folly of California’s climate alarmist policies to their countries?

California has now created a world where Governor Brown, Senate leader Kevin de Leon and Air Board Chairwomen Mary Nichols will determine at huge cost and without the appropriate knowledge, expertise, planning and communication how everyone of the 37 million people of the state must live every aspect of their lives to meet meaningless climate goals with the resulting massive sacrifices that will impact California citizens having no consequence on the global emissions stage.

California is proceeding down this absurd emissions reduction path while the “science” supposedly supporting climate alarmism claims is crumbling with global climate models shown to be flawed and failed by climate scientist testimony before Congress and UN IPCC acknowledgements of the undeniable truth that it is impossible to create credible global climate models which, in fact, has been the case for the last 25 years.

Additionally testimony before Congress also shows no connection between greenhouse gas emissions and increased severe weather, including hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and droughts, as falsely claimed by climate alarmists.

Finally NOAA 2016 updated coastal sea level rise tide gauge data shows no acceleration in sea level rise along the California coastline or anywhere else despite false claims by the UN IPCC that man made emissions have been increasing rates of sea level rise since the 1970’s.

California’s politically driven climate alarmist emissions reduction goals are meaningless and completely unnecessary and threaten to produce massive damage to the states economy and to the lives and freedoms of all of its 37 million citizens.

    Scratch a progressive, find a Nazi…

  2. “Climate Change” is the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on science. The truth is very simple:

    CO2 is a “trace gas” in air and is insignificant by definition. It would have to be increased by a factor of 2500 to be considered “significant” or “notable.” To give it the great power claimed is a crime against physical science.

    CO2 absorbs 1/7th as much IR, heat energy, from sunlight per molecule as water vapor which has 188 times as many molecules capturing 1200 times as much heat producing 99.9% of all “global warming.” CO2 does only 0.1% of it. Pushing panic about any effect CO2 could have is clearly a fraud.

    There is no “greenhouse effect” in an atmosphere. A greenhouse has a solid, clear cover trapping heat physically. The atmosphere does not trap heat as gas molecules cannot form surfaces to work as greenhouses that admit and retain energy depending on sun angle. Gases do not form surfaces as their molecules are not in contact. Only liquids and solids have molecules in contact.

    The Medieval Warming from 800 AD to 1300 AD Michael Mann erased for his “hockey stick” was several Fahrenheit degrees warmer than anything “global warmers” fear. It was 500 years of world peace and abundance, the longest ever.

    Vostock Ice Core data analysis show CO2 rises followed temperature by 800 years 19 times in 450,000 years. Therefore temperature change is cause and CO2 change is effect. This alone refutes the anthropogenic global warming hypothesis.

    Methane is called “a greenhouse gas 20 to 500 times more potent than CO2,” by Heidi Cullen and Jim Hansen, but it is not per the energy absorption chart at the American Meteorological Society. It has an absorption profile very similar to nitrogen which is classified “transparent” to IR, heat waves and is only present to 18 ppm. “Vegans” blame methane in cow flatulence for global warming in their war against meat consumption.

    Carbon combustion generates 80% of our energy. Control and taxing of carbon would give the elected ruling class more power and money than anything since the Magna Carta of 1215 AD.

    Most scientists and science educators work for tax supported institutions. They are eager to help government tax more money for them and enjoy being seen as “saving the planet.”

    Read the whole story in “Vapor Tiger” at, Kindle $2.99 including a free Kindle reading program for your computer. We have an inexpensive demo-experiment “CO2 Is Innocent,” 99 cents at, showing CO2 has no effect on IR heat absorption up to 10,000 ppm and then it cools the atmosphere by driving water vapor out as it is seven times the IR absorber/heater as CO2.

      Very astute article;but the brain dead will not read as They are ruled by FEELINGS. Until California allows only legal citizens to vote ( and then only once and where They live ) it will continue as a Communist Satellite State. Los Angles , at one time , had several newspapers–Herald, Examiner, Mirror–then the Herald Examiner after the Times came to Town. News has been demoted to Propaganda in print as well as Television and the schools treat theory ( postulates really ) as law, like evolution. The Global Warming B.S. is nothing other than an International TAX SCHEME.

    • Thom Bluemel says

      What a wonderfully comprehensive, succinct and cogent argument in favor of real science! I applaud you, Mr. Vance, and I will read the items you have suggested. I would only add that mankind’s contribution to the total amount of the trace gas CO2 in the atmosphere is also insignificant on the order of tens of thousandths; so, even if CO2 did affect climate (which it certainly does not), man’s impact on it is virtually immeasurable!


    SB 32 states :(2) This bill would become operative only if AB 197 of the 2015–16 Regular Session is enacted and becomes effective on or before January 1, 2017.” and AB 197 states “(4)  This bill would become operative only if SB 32 of the 2015–16 Regular Session is enacted and becomes effective on or before January 1, 2017. ” WTF? That date has long passed….

  4. There has to be a way that we “sheeple” can stop this BS. Where are the Kochs and Adelmans(sp) or other wealthy benefactors? Can’t a lawsuit be filed? Help, help, help!!
    I am posting parts of the above to my list of friends. Hope everyone else will sound the alarm.

    When did “Global Warming” take the place of Seasons ?…….When it was feasible to create a “science run for political advantage”

    • Gary Von Neida says

      Season change and due to an elliptical orbit They change in a cyclical manner and have done so long before Man ever came along;but, They can’t TAX Mother Nature.

  6. Get rid of the bald head pecker nose ex-priest bum and indict the asshole–his day is coming

  7. We saw this coming and we left for a free state almost three years ago. Gov. Moonbat favors illegal aliens and others on welfare. He’s driving out the people who actually work for a living and pay the taxes. What will he do when too many of the hardworking citizens he calls “freeloaders” actually move out of California? How will he manage the huge debt and pay the bills when he runs out of other people’s money?

  8. Shane Conway says

    The EPA was created in 1970. It’s sole purpose was to slow down and interrupt capitalism. Over the years that rogue agency has taken little subtle steps to achieve it’s goals. No one can argue against clean water and air, but did any of you think that your families and lively hoods would be demonized? What ever happened to our unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Now the government tells us how to be happy, even if it means taking away your property and dictating how to live. You better wake up.

  9. The most important point is it doesn’t matter if all the carbon in the world is forming into a massive monster that will devour us alive. California can’t do anything about it. If it ceased to exist, the reduction in emissions would be a drop in the bucket (especially since the industry and agriculture here would just be picked up elsewhere, perhaps with higher carbon emissions). Literally creating poverty for no purpose whatsoever.

  10. He needs to be recalled post-haste.

    And his ideas, too.

  11. David Larson says

    Time for a recall of this old fossil Moonbeam. The power of these credents need to be curtailed greatly… they are so full of themselves.

  12. Read a book by Andrew Napolitano called A NATION OF SHEEP, then tell me if you see any parallels.

  13. Really??? says

    Cars Are Basic, stated 20 years ago the control of travel and ownership of transportation would lead to a totalitarian control of the people. It is what the German National Socialist did, it is what Stalin did, it is what Mao did, etc.

    This is the new propaganda using the old dictatorial practices of centuries of dictators. I was surprised to talk with a college student when informed of these types of tactics exclaimed it is fear mongering.

    It is the high population, welfare centers that want this to be true so government will take care of them in the name of the environment.

  14. Here is an interesting point of view from Australia.
    Science for simpletons, my name for it.
    The guru of death and destruction of California won’t be able to see it he has his head on the wrong end. What did that Nun do to him in India

  15. The typical Democrat voter must be willing to live in a FEMA camp. To support what the Democrat legislators are now proposing requires a poor hopeless attitude. Pretty sad for California’s future.

  16. Christian says

    Was that Stephen on Hot Talk 560 morning show yesterday saying in 2020 the gas tax would have to increase by another 73c on top op the recently passed 23c tax?

    If people knew this they would be in open revolt irregardless of party. When voters approved CARB they had no idea what the cost was.
