SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Republican lawmakers in California are circulating a ballot initiative backed by business interests that would suspend California's landmark law to cut greenhouse gas emissions, a signature policy of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's tenure.

For heavens sake, lets make things as difficult as possible for businesses, then jobs, then people to live comfortably.

A question: Since you post all of this wonderful environmental hogwash, I have to assume that:
you never ride in a vehicle that isn't solar powered,
your home is completely solar powered (never get electicity from any power grid),
your garden is watered by storm catch (rain barrels, cistern).

Please tell me that you aren't a hypocrite like a lot of the people that flew to Copenhagen in private jets for a global warming orgy.

What I find interesting is how frequently legislators will use some short term issue to undermine a long term benefit.

Should we be eliminating seat belts from cars so that auto manufacturers have a higher profit margin?

How about removing oversight of drug production so that pharmaceutical manufacturers do not have to bother with all that quality control?

What is that about an ounce of prevention.......?
