Gov. Jerry Brown Signs New Climate Change Laws

As reported by NPR:

California is already on track to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020.

Now under legislation signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, the state will ratchet up its fight against climate change by launching an ambitious campaign to scale back emissions 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030.

“This is big, and I hope it sends a message across the country,” Brown said.

California reduced emissions by imposing limits on the carbon content of gasoline and diesel fuel, promoting zero-emission electric vehicles, and introducing a cap-and-trade system for polluters.

  1. And Jerry the Stupid continues his march into oblivion. Never mind that there are 100’s of thing that contribute to “warming”, not just carbon. Never mind that he has produced no SCIENTIFIC evidence that CO2 cause “warming.” Never mind that mankind is responsible for only 6% of the CO2 that finds itself in the atmosphere. And 6% of .0239% (total in atmosphere) is .0000234%. Now tell me Jerry, what part of the .0000234% is California contributing? Do you have enough zeros on your computer to give us an answer? And Jerry, please explain the fact that there has been NO temperature increase for over 20 years and that NOAA/NASA have diddled with the very early readings that were high (changed lower) to make the current readings seem high by comparison. And Jerry lastly, why are you ignoring the Little Hoover Commission’s repeated requests for a cost/benefit comparison of your “green” agenda? Could it be that like Europe found out, there is NO BENEFIT, huh Jerry?
