The California Air Resorces Board Is Made Up Of Morons

The CARB has decided to fight Global Warming Climate Change by instituting cap and trade for our state. This means we will have new regulations, new taxes, new governmental entities, blah blah blah ...

China* has decided not to do this. Here's a graphical representation of what this means.

* - Neither has India, Russia, Brazil, Indonesia, ... I didn't have enough space on the graphic to add all of them. That is left as an exercise for the reader.

"PG&E’s rates are expected to rise slightly because of the new rules."

I was stunned at how high our energy costs were here in CA. We moved to the central coast this summer. I had thought that our electric bills would be modest, what with the temperate climate and all. I was so wrong. Turns out that areas that have lower demand are charged more by PG&E for each kilowatt hour. In effect, our electric bill was subsidizing the energy costs of the valleys.
