Joel Kotkin sent me this link to a Union Tribune editorial. As Arnold would say, it’s fantastic. When asked about the possibility of suspending AB 32 during bad economic times, Arnold asserts that AB 32 is helping economic Growth. Here’s the money quote:

“Your question is premised on an unproven assertion that implementation of AB 32 would be harmful to the economy when all the evidence points in the opposite direction.”

The editorial goes on to provide other examples of what could politely be called less-than-rational thinking. It also provides some evidence of how completely contradictory to reality the Governor’s office is about environmental regulation. They conclude:

“When you start making stuff up, anything goes. If only the governor’s fantasies didn’t have such dire real-world impacts.”

Too true.
