    HeyJenn,

    I got your back any time.
    She's just a little confused, that's all.

    Happens to all of us at times...

    You saw my link. It was referenced in your post.

    Wait, are you saying you are debating without considering the facts that were presented to you?

    Might I recommend Covey's 5th Habit of highly effective people?

    Mr. RNG,

    The point I was trying to make was that it is great that California achieved those goals, but don't pretend they were without costs and didn't hurt.

    In many ways, California is a great place to live, but concentrating on goals like this takes away from the other quality of life aspects of living here. Taxes are too high and they pay for feel good projects, like the amazingly stupid bullet train to nowhere, rather than for roads, infrastructure, etc. The increased costs of doing business because of these feel good projects drives up the costs of goods and services, making it onerous on the people that have to live here.

    And business unfriendly measures like this force companies to relocate elsewhere, and the workers follow. As such, what is left in California is the extremely wealthy class, and the peons that can't afford to move. That is why California has one of the highest levels of income inequality in the nation.

    Californians can breathe easier except for all the smoke from the wildfires. So, if the goal is reducing use of fossil fuels, why didn't any liberal politicians tell people before the Fourth of July holiday to take a "staycation" or otherwise cut back on driving or flying?
