California Aims to Drop Fossil Fuels for Electricity by 2045,
US News, September 10, 2018.

MAIN POINTS

“…goal of phasing out electricity produced by fossil fuels by 2045...”

“...along with an executive order Brown signed directing California to take as much carbon dioxide out of the air as it emits...”

“...require California's utilities to generate 60 percent of their energy from wind, solar and other specific renewable sources by 2030. That's 10 percent higher than the current mandate.”

This is All Propaganda
“It's merely a goal, with no mandate or penalty for falling short.”

Oil State
“...Brown has often faced criticism that he's too lenient with the oil industry, including from environmental groups pushing him to create a moratorium on new oil and gas wells in the state.”

“California has nearly 54,000 active wells, some of them close to urbanized areas in Southern California and the Central Valley...”

“California ranked sixth among states in crude oil production in May, the latest data available from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The state ranks 15th in natural gas production. California's production of crude oil has fallen steadily since the mid-1980s.”

 

The Bottom Line
Brown is busy growing vast megacities in California, as California adds at least 500,000, and up to a million, illegals to our population every year. Where’s the energy (let alone the water) for having fifty million people in California by 2050?

The trend line of our population growth assures the failure of Jerry’s, “aspirational,” energy-environmental goals. The propaganda goals of the Corporate Greens, such as the Dems, does not match their, “actions on the ground.” We will not decrease our carbon pollution while we are doubling our population every forty years.

This is a distraction. The Corporate Greens are saying, “look over there, a squirrel,” while they work to build the vast populations that will make all their green words irrelevant.

The vast scale of the physical demographic growth of the state of California assures all of Jerry’s, and the Corporate Green’s, energy and water policies are doomed to fail before the ink has dried on the bills.

Jerry knows this. PG & E knows this.

It’s my guess that PG & E took this, “replacing fossil fuels,” legislation sitting down as part of a larger deal.
PG & E took this, “green,” legislation because it if fairly toothless, and as part of the Dims giving PG&E billions of taxpayer dollar subsidized wildfire relief. This represents a win-win for PG & E, as this, “replacing fossil fuels,” legislation has no teeth, having no enforcement or penalties for non-compliance.

It's mostly smoke & mirrors for the rubes, to distract them as Rome burns.

But, I’m all for restricting carbon, under the category of, “better than nothing,” as long as we finally force Jerry and the Corporate Greens to recognize that our problems all stem from their tripling our state’s population over forty years, and their moving all our manufacturing to the environmentally unregulated crucible of semi-slave labor, China. That’s what did it, and is doing it.

How about they stop doing the things that are screwing our environment in the first place, rather than addressing their symptoms? That would be a real change.

It would be nice if Jerry and the Corporate Greens focused on the sources of our climate problems, rather than their symptoms, but that would require they eliminate themselves, or abandon their policies of endless onshore and offshore growth.
