Kalifornia governor Jerry Brown said at a “global warming” conference held yesterday in San Francisco:
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.
The only thing Brown is doing is pushing jobs out of the Golden State which has some of the highest unemployment in the entire United States – 11.7% versus 8.6%. The jobs exodus is so severe that cities are going broke as is the state.
In fact, not three days ago Brown announced that Kalifornia is $2.2 billion short for the year. With mandatory cuts coming because of the shortfall Brown will be in a great position to… try and raise taxes!
Higher taxes is really what “Global Warming” is all about… funding the Liberal Big Government state. Use an excuse… any excuse… and sell the hell out of it to take more money out of peoples’ wallets. If they think they’re “helping” the environment – all the better.
Speaking of “Global Warming” taxes… Canada – home to oil reserves almost as large as Saudi Arabia – pulled out of Kyoto agreement because it would have cost that nation $14 billion. All of this as the Durban conference on “Global Warming” tries to make rich nations send their money to poor countries to compensate them for a changing climate which, they claim, is caused by burning fossil fuels.
It’s worth presenting this little factoid about “Global Warming” again:
Jerry Brown’s little summit included many potshots at Republicans who don’t want to needlessly tax Americans. In fact, when Bill Clinton was president and the Kyoto Protocol came up for a vote in the U.S. Senate it was rejected by 95 to 0.
The lesson? When it comes time to write the checks, countries balk. Canada. The U.S. India. China. All these “Global Warming” conferences are in the end is but another way to try and steal money from people in one nation and give them to people in another. Of course, the nations that would get the money are corrupt and it would largely disappear down a rathole of corruption.
Once again, more lies from the Left as they seek new and inventive ways to steal from your wallet – and make you unemployed and businesses fold up shop and move to sunnier pastures.
Guest writer William McCullough gave us his thoughts earlier in the week in an article titled: California Dreaming or How Can So Many Stupid People Live in One Place?
Could that be why the unemployment rate in Kalifornia is so high?
