    Spot on. CA is EASILY the most anti-PRODUCTION state in America. Consider these figures from 2007 to 2010 — BEFORE cap and trade has started to have its adverse effect:

    From 2007 through 2010, 10,763 manufacturing facilities were built or expanded across the country — but only 176 of those were in CA. So with roughly 12% of the nation’s population, CA got 1.6% of the built or expanded manufacturing facilities. Stated differently, adjusted for population, the other 49 states averaged 8.4 times more manufacturing growth than did California.
