Gov. Jerry Brown will sign a new climate change agreement with "government leaders from around the world" on Tuesday, his office announced.
The agreement comes three weeks after the governor ordered new targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in California. He's also been pushing for more renewable energy, lower gasoline consumption and better efficiency in older buildings. LINK

 IMO it is dangerous to ignore this any longer.

But, don't you understand, we're in extraordinary times with global warming, I mean climate change, I mean climate crisis ... whatever. Extraordinary times require extraordinary thinking. To hell with antiquated concepts like a constitution.

The Constitution is not a suicide pact.
Global warming is starting to have more and relevant data points, should not be ignored, but it is not proven.

Kali is full of suckers, after all Jerry Brown is President, I mean Governor! Time for revolt has passed and soon the collapse will come when Calpers cuts existing retirees payments or writes IOU payable on their death and only redeemable in writing by the retiree.

Morning y'all

Same winds kicking up as spread the fires last month. Cross your fingers.

LBD said...

Good Morning!

Straw anyone?

Cool down for a few days. Hopefully we have had our extreme cold for the season.

Lawyerliz said...

Don't you think something will
. . Unfairly . . save them.

I thought winter was the rainy season in SoCal

LBD said...

Can Stores sell juice boxes with straws? Measures must be taken!

Rob Dawg said...

Winter is variable. Sometimes storms line up in the Pacific. Other times like now we get high pressure systems that block the normal flow of cold from the north hitting moist air coming in from the south.

Rob Dawg said...

New post.

I'd like to hear your thoughts on If the effort fails, I think I should move out. Between the homeless, the Mexicans, the out-of-control state government, the high housing prices, and the use of California as a staging area for interstate marijuana trafficking, I just don't see any possibility of improvement unless we go bankrupt.
