Bill Gates: Another AB 32 Hypocrite

October 23, 2010 - By admin

John Seiler:

Bill Gates, the mega-billionaire anti-populationist, also is dumping money into the anti-Prop. 23 campaign, as I’m reminded by David Kramer of the great LewRockwell.com. Gates, who’s worth around $54 billion, donated $700,000 to the anti-Prop. 23 campaign.

What’s this carpetbagger coming down from Washington to destroy our jobs? Here’s a picture of his mansion up in Washington, which has one of the biggest “carbon footprints” in the world.

Oh, wait. I get it. He destroys California. Californians move up to Washington and increase home values, including that for his mansion.

By the way, his mansion is ugly. Billionaires used to have better taste.

    According to a poll by the Public Policy Institute of California, the November 2nd Prop. 23 ballot initiative to suspend California’s job-killing global warming law stands at 48% against Prop. 23 and 37% for Prop. 23. Now, only 10 days from the election, “yes on Prop. 23” TV ads are finally appearing.

    The “no on Prop. 23″ funders are spending $29.9 million — three times that of the “yes on Prop. 23″ campaign. One-third of the anti-23 organizations have received over $2 million from billionaire George Soros’ Tides Foundation, and include the Sierra Club, The Nature Conservancy and other eco-groups. George Soros’ Tides Foundation is a slush fund for progressive (liberal) special interests — handing out over $100 million each year. Titanic and Avatar director James Cameron gave $1 million to stop Prop. 23. A new video from Greener Horizon Films shows Cameron as a “green hypocrite.”

    Soros affiliates dumped over $25 million for Pres. Obama’s election. Lately, Soros has pumped money into left wing media — $1 million to Media Matters, $1.8 million to NPR and deals with The Huffington Post for so-called “independent media” ventures. Soros bought Obama’s election, and directs Obama’s domestic policies through his Center for American Progress. And now, Soros is buying more influence in America’s liberal media.

    Before the economic recession, Californians blindly approved the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (Assembly Bill 32) that mandates 2012 reductions of greenhouse gases through carbon taxes, and alternative and renewable fuel subsidies. All new climate laws increase the unit production costs and corresponding consumer prices of all goods and services.

    California voters can delay the California Global Warming Solutions Act (A.B. 32) by voting for Prop. 23. Prop. 23 would suspend implementation of A.B. 32 until the state’s unemployment rate is reduced from its current 12% to below 5.5%.

    What is clear in California is that partisan ideologies and cultish environmentalism have replaced prudent science and economic realities in climate policy. What is also clear is that radical environmentalism no longer offers any product or service in support of our future security and prosperity. Militant environmentalism and green-obsessed bureaucrats have become an “axis of antagonism” that we can no longer afford.

    Why are there no cries about “Out of State” people trying to manipulate the laws in Califonria when Gates gets involved? What a joke.

    Let’s see… Microsoft’s main competitors are Google, Apple, CISCO, Yahoo… If Prop 23 is shot down, AB 32 takes affect, raising energy costs, taxes, and more restrictions on business, all of which negatively impact California companies like Google, Apple, CISCO and Yahoo. Sounds like part of a strategic effort to me…
