Suspends State law that requires greenhouse gas emissions be reduced to 1990 levels by 2020, until California’s unemployment drops to 5.5 percent or less for four consecutive quarters.
I have figured out how this works in California. Unemployment is close to 15%, with eight counties having unemployment rates higher than 20%. 34% of California manufacturing jobs have been lost since 2001.
By keeping everybody unemployed and at home, they can reduce greenhouse gas emissions back to 1990 levels – which will make the Polar bears ecstatically happy.
The argument goes that they need to keep the current greenhouse gas reduction law in place, in order to prop up the burgeoning clean energy industry – which has been and will continue to be the driver of California’s exceptionally fine employment conditions.
In other words, the government of California is run by morons.
