Harris, Sanchez campaign in SoCal for Senate seat

"Ms Harris has shown that she will not uphold an existing law that she disagrees with, even though she was duty-bound to do so. She cannot be trusted to serve as senator of the Great State of California. On the other hand, Ms. Sanchez has served in the U.S.Congress honorably."

California seeks to extend landmark climate-change effort

"Governor Brown may need “real” tax dollars to continue to fund his high speed rail as those “fees” from cap & trade are diminishing. Maybe it’s karma that the cash cow of the cap & trade “fees” may be dying, as CARB avoids the transparency that the program has done little in 10 years to reduce California’s 1% contribution to the World’s Green House gases. California’s flagship climate change policy Assembly Bill 32, the Global Warming Initiative was signed into law in 2006 when California was contributing 1% to the worlds green hose gases. And now, 10 years later, by AVOIDING transparency of the results of the California emissions crusade, the state can focus on how to spend the cap and trade funds they receive. Now, a decade later, according to the California Energy Commission we still contributes a miniscule 1 percent ( 1%). The cap & trade program that hits the motorists’ pocketbooks and has had little to no impact on the reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions. Yet, the state, by avoiding transparency of the results of the California emissions crusade remains on a go-it-alone crusade to micro manage the California emissions that generates billions of dollars for the government at the expense of businesses and the financially challenged. With numerous state government agencies there is a feeding frenzy on getting a piece of the lucrative cap and trade tax revenue. The public, especially the homeless and poor that are paying dearly for the emissions crusade efforts of the AQMD deserves to know if there is any progress over the last decade in reducing California’s 1% contribution to the world’s greenhouse gases."
