California deserves it. Other than the not-so-Golden State’s maniacal drive to import as many illegal aliens as they can, then provide said illegals with as many “free” benefits — funded by California taxpayers, of course — as possible, Cali’s dogged perseverance in its Don Quixotesque fight against “climate change” is a sight to behold. This is an ominous sight, but not impossible.
Anyway, let’s do a “hypothetical” problem-solving exercise.
Here’s the scenario: Gas prices at the pump have continued to skyrocket throughout Joe Biden’s presidency. Joe hilariously first tried to blame Russia’s Vladimir Putin for runaway prices, then even more hysterically tried to pass the buck to the Republican Party, but I digress.
Let’s say your state has one of the highest average pump prices in America, at $6 per gallon. You can also add in that you have the second highest gas tax in the nation at $.0539/gallon. Pennsylvania is only a few short. Your citizens are screaming “Do something!” as their finances and lifestyles are strained by the out-of-control pieces.
It is a question of what do you do?
The answer: If you’re a growing number of cities in California, you ban new gas stations as part of your heroic battle against “climate change” — AKA: “The existential threat of mankind.”
How did California’s LatestWhere did the madness of display begin? As reported by The Los Angeles Times on Monday, municipal leaders of a small Sonoma County city — without realizing they were starting yet another “green energy” movement —first began to question the approval process for a new gas station; eventually Stopping its future development. If That doesn’t spell not-so-golden,What does it do?
Petaluma, California, Councilwoman D’Lynda Fischer, who led the 2021 charge to prohibit new gas stations in the city of 60,000, was absolutely clueless in her explanation of what the hell happened and why.
We didn’t know what we were doing, actually. We didn’t know we were the first in the world when we banned gas stations.
I mean, it’s not like this was the first time a group of clueless Democrats jumped all over an idiotic idea like a blind squirrel on an acorn, in search of an equally-idiotic cause, only to later be smacked by reality.
As reported by Bloomberg in May, California’s $19 billion carbon market initiative has failed to curb carbon emissions as envisioned by officials, showing little If possible,directly impact greenhouse gases. But, hey; on Planet Looney Tunes, it’s not about results; it’s about intent. Foolishness or not.
Nonetheless, as noted by the Times, since Petaluma’s decision, four other cities in the Bay Area have followed suit, and now, leaders in Southern California — the state’s most car-centric metropolis — are hoping to adopt the “climate-conscious” (lunatic) policy.
Incidentally, just weeks after Californians, in 2020, suffered rolling blackouts due to a lack of wind and solar power, California’s nutjob governor, Gavin Newsom, announced that the state would ban the sale of gas-powered vehicles in 2035 in favor of electric vehicles alone.
There are many things that could go wrong.
Then again, AnythingTo stop the existential danger to mankind from being swept under its feet.
