Green Suicide in California

Global Warming Policy Foundation

California is the trend-setter in many social and political movements, some good, some not so good.  Now it looks like it will become the canary in the mineshaft for the Watermelon Revolution.   An economic study shows that California’s outbreak of trendy anti-global-warming legislation will ruin its economy and the lives of most of its citizens:

New economic impact study on California’s Global Warming Solutions Act finds that the average California family will end up paying an additional $2,500 annually by 2020. In addition, the state is expected to lose an additional 262,000 jobs, 5.6 percent of the gross state product, and a whopping $7.4 billion through decreased annual state and local tax revenues as a result.

The California Manufacturers and Technology Association released a new report last week that suggests costs associated with AB 32 may be a lot higher than previously estimated. AB 32, otherwise known as the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, was signed into law by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger- propelling California to the forefront in the fight against global warming. Successful passage of the law effectively turned the state into one of the most stringent regulators of green house gas emissions in the nation and globally. Some would argue that the move all but eliminated California’s competitive edge in today’s market.

I guess all those Prius’ really do suck.
