CA Energy Schemes: ‘We are getting fleeced’

Cal Watchdog -- The California Air Resources Board has created a stealthy new corporation in Delaware. The Western Climate Initiative Inc., which will manage cap-and-trade programs, even has its own form of currency.
“CARB is creating a whole new currency with these pollution certificates,” explained Assemblywoman Diane Harkey, R-Dana Point. “Initially the state was to unite with other Western states to reduce the purported menace to the future of our planet,” Harkey said.

Harkey has been trying to get her legislative colleagues to understand that the “fix,” setting a goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels, with increasing population on the horizon, “is guaranteed to cost employers and everyday people more for the electricity and products they need.

funny that this is California's doing, not the DC administration, yet, so many folks here complain (as expected) about the administration.

CA has voted itself into this.

'We are getting fleeced' – fleecing California and the rest of the nation too. Barry's 'spending gone wild' policy is affecting everyone in the US. Higher taxes, a continuing struggling economy, too many people out of work, wasted taxpayer money spent on already failing green energy companies, there are too many items related to a bad economy.

The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

The real "fix" is the CA voters realizing that perhaps they ought to elect someone apart from the Pelosis, Boxers, etc.

Too bad for CA's political and economic future that there are too many politicians on the opposite end of the spectrum that are flushing CA out to sea, polluting the Pacific.
