California is sliding slowly into the abyss. It’s not enough that 9,000 companies have packed up and moved to more tax-friendly states. The Bay Area is so expensive that few can afford to live there. Progressives run the place like their own personal slot machine.

The California Air Resources Board has issued regulations to cut the state’s greenhouse emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, but the board is getting worried about their climate agenda. It could all be ruined by natural phenomena.They’ve gone after the oil producers, the manufacturers and now they are going after the cows.

It’s methane, which”according to the board is a ‘short-lived climate pollutant with an outsized impact on climate change in the near term.” ” “Cow manure and ‘enteric fermentation’ (flatulence) account for half of the state’s methane emissions.”

“If dairy farms in California were to manage manure in a way to further reduce methane…

    C.A.R.B. has a long history of trying to destroy the economy of California. In the early days of the Silicon industry they very nearly closed it down with a court order that prevented silicon foundry NOX emissions as there was no known scrubber technology for it. A self educated inventor developed a system that reduced NOx emissions below that called for by the court order so, C.A.R.B. and the brand new E.P.A. were Required to issue the permits! The Silicon Electronics industry was supposed to happen in Asia not the Bay area.

    A number of years ago they worked to drive out the Bay area Sourdough bakeries because the emitted a ton of ethanol a day!

    For these people, stuff/food production is not needed here. We get OUR stuff from Walmart! and our income from the Government. They want California to be an unpeopled paradise that they read about in their Ecoloon Books…pg

    One of these days the San Andreas will let go, then it will speed up a lot.

    They will pass a Law and 7 Regulations preventing earthquakes without a license. They will then assure everybody that California is safe.

    We are all supposed to eat Vegan anyway…

    One wonders if they know that the grass, left uneaten, ferments to methane and CO2 anyway…

    BTW, when a wee lad we had local butchers and slaughterhouses. They were driven out long ago. Now companies from Nevada drive down, round up and harvest the cows, send them to slaughter and packing in Nevada… So now we can instead save them the trouble and just truck the hay to Nevada…
