Despite Jerry Brown’s claims, here’s why California’s greenhouse gas level fell. Oh oh. Here goes more pontificating down the tubes. Con artist Jerry can’t get anything right.

Julie Cart, the environmental writer for CALmatters who covered Brown’s European sojourn, delved into the report’s data and discovered that the major reason for last year’s drop in emissions wasn’t cap-and-trade, or any other state action.

Rather, it occurred because unusually heavy winter rain and snow storms allowed utilities to depend less on generating electricity by burning fossil fuels and more on hydroelectric power from dams in California and other states.

“Emissions from in-state electricity generation decreased more than 19 percent last year, and emissions from imported electricity dropped nearly 23 percent,” Cart wrote.

Living in the times of satelites and big data you can see for yourself.

I first heard Paul Harvey on the radio back in the early 1970’s. Was a big fan until he had to leave the airwaves.

Same here. I would listen to him every day during lunch break.

Go to the truck, listen to Mr. Harvey, then grab your lunchbox and go hang out with the guys on the crew. Pretty much daily.

So in essence, ‘climate change'(wetter than usual winter) caused reduced emissions. This is not going to go over well with Big Green in California; the writer of this article may find herself banished to Utah or Wyoming or some other un-Progressive hell hole.

It wouldn’t be hard for her to get a job in other state, the red states anyway. Moonbeam will fire her soon for farting in his face, basically telling him he didn’t know what he was talking about.
