Fight for SB 350

Speaking very loosely, California Senate Bill 350 will reduce California's carbon pollution by 50% by the time we reach 2030.

These are exactly the kinds of measures we need to be taking now. Governor Brown and the California Democratic leadership have pushed the bill through the Senate, but there is trouble in the Assembly. The culprits are the usual assortment of conservative Republican nutjobs and Democratic crooks trying to hold the bill for ransom in order to extract perks and goodies for their own constitutents.

We need to push to get this bill passed. Below is a link to information about SB 350, and below that is a link to a Sierra Club page that will let you contact your Assembly representative in support of the bill.

Carly Fiorina and the "Moderate" Republican Position on Climate Change

Another home run from Dave Roberts, reviewing Carly Fiorina's recent comments on the futility of trying to fight climate change. Roberts looks at the ten points that Fiorina tried to make recently, and in so doing he provides a nice little summary of how the transition to renewable energy is going.

I particularly liked point number 2, where Fiorina claims that California's push for renewable energy is hurting the California economy. Roberts points out that home electricity prices have fallen during the push, and that California's economy is growing and that California leads the nation in job creation.

A Battery the Size of Norway

This is great thinking. In order to get off of carbon we need power storage on this level. I hope someone gets this done.
