Propaganda Alert: California’s Phony Bad Air Report
The California Air Resources Board has just released a report declaring victory over global warming. It says clean power provided 52% of the electricity California used in 2017. California has reached its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions below 1990 levels four years early. Wow. On its face, this would appear to be a remarkable achievement. “Smart climate policies are good for our economy and good for the planet,” says Gov. Gavin Newsom.
Well, not quite. When a progressive calls something “smart” look out.
Smart on crime: Liberate all jails, prisons and rewrite definitions of crime.
Smart growth: Don’t have any growth, especially suburban housing.
Smart energy: Don’t build in any new politically incorrect power plants, hydroelectric, nuclear, natural gas and especially coal, which California quietly smuggles across the border to meet peak demand when the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing.
