Because California’s not in enough financial trouble

I’m trying to think of something snarky and clever to say, but I’m actually rendered speechless by this one:

Taking the lead where Washington has wavered, California on Thursday is expected to adopt the nation’s most ambitious plan yet to curb global warming.

The California Air Resources Board is all but certain to vote to approve comprehensive “cap and trade” regulations designed to cut greenhouse gases. The regulations would impose limits, or “caps,” on emissions from large industrial polluters through permits, or allowances, that could be traded on a market.

Those pushing the bill claim that it will be a boon for Silicon Valley.  I’ll believe it when I see it.

As it is, someone might want to mention to an agency that seems to have run amok that (a) climate change is dead and (b) California is broke.

I’ve lived most of my life in this state.  The Bay Area climate works really well for me, and I love my small community.  That makes it very upsetting for me that I’m pretty much watching my state committing suicide.

For more on California’s self-inflicted death (ah, I guess that could also be called a “suicide”), read Victor Davis Hanson or watch this video.
