BY RON STEIN: The problem with the California economy is not greenness. It’s homelessness.
For natural climate change, the Golden State doesn’t need bullet trains. It needs reservoirs.
Why is the middle class fleeing the Golden State?
It is yet another example of property owners being dragged through the mud by agenda-driven bureaucrats with nothing else better to do than throw their weight around.
The Green dead train, like the Green New Deal, is a ludicrous waste. Good riddance.
Green rhetoric hide's California's failing economy, increasing poverty and fleeing workforce.
A member of the California State legislature, Assemblyman Phil Ting, wants to ban paper receipts. It would be the first state to do so, he says, “leading the nation.” Swell.
By Ron Stein The problem with the Paris Climate Agreement, the National Climate Assessment report, and other forecasts, is that most of the nations of the world have bought into the “forecasted conclusions” regardless of the validity of the assumptions.
By Ronald Stein It has been 10 years since passage of California Proposition 1A the High-Speed Rail Act that approved the $9.95 billion bond, a down payment on a high-speed rail project that was optimistically estimated by proponents at that time to cost $40 billion. Today, the California high-speed rail cost may approach $100 billion. Public enthusiasm is obviously dwindling.
Historians have found no conclusive evidence that the Emperor Nero was playing his lyre during Rome's great fire. He wasn't even in the city. Future historians will have no problem documenting that Governor Brown and the Greens chose ideology over effective forest management, fire fighting and prevention.
California's state’s forests and adjacent grasslands are a tinder box waiting to explode. Yet Gov. Brown has never called for an overhaul of these disastrous policies.
Governor Brown, if you are still searching for the anthropogenic link to California's tragic fires, we expect somewhere in the governor's mansion there’s probably a mirror.
By Ron Stein California is the fifth largest economy in the world. By trying to force its climate and energy policies on the nation, California may be putting the U.S. at national security risk.
By Ronald Stein California is home to the largest crude oil reserves in America, but the States’ choice to not drill for that oil requires in-state manufacturers to “export” billions of dollars annually to oil rich foreign countries to import their oil to meet the state’s energy demands.
By Ronald Stein Closing ANY refinery in California or nationwide would result in a PERMANENT hit to the economy and increased emissions from foreign suppliers.
