Arnold returns for ‘climate change’ confab

Arnold returns for ‘climate change’ confab

Global warming, notWhile restarting his acting career and going through numerous personal crises, Arnold Schwarzenegger has avoided reminding people he was the governor for seven disastrous years. He returned to Sacramento this week to sponsor a confab on what he once called “global warming,” as in his AB32, the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006.

“Global warming” now is called “climate change,” which can mean anything from a meteor hitting the earth to a centimeter less of rain than the local TV meteorologist predicted.

The meeting was called: “Climate Symposium-Global Climate Negotiations: Lessons From California.” Of course, there’s one lesson that Arnold learned: postpone a new regulation’s economic damage until long after you’ve left office.

Only next January will AB32’s massive tax of up to 76 cents more a gallon slam California drivers. It’s so regressive a tax that Democratic Assemblyman Henry Perea of Fresno sponsored AB 69 to postpone the tax’s imposition for three years, providing relief to his poor constituents with long commutes. His fellow Democrats, supposedly the “party of the poor,” killed the bill.

Schwarzenegger himself is worth around $700 million, so he won’t even feel the tax. He tools around Southern California in gigantic, gas-guzzling Bentleys and Mercedes, yet forces the rest of us to squeeze into tiny cars or mass transit. Following the rules he imposed is for us, not him.

According to the USC Schwarzenegger Institute, worthies attending the symposium included, “Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Governor Jerry Brown, California Senator Kevin De Leon, Mary Nichols, Dr. R.K. Pachauri, Lisa Jackson and Ed Begley Jr.”

Not one global-warming/climate-change skeptic in the bunch, despite Climategate 1, Climategate 2 and Climategate 3 — scandals which showed the “scientists” involved in the “research” actually cooked the books. It’s like in the Soviet Union when Trofim Lysenko‘s phony biological theories were imposed, with no opposition allowed. Well, at least global-warming doubters aren’t sent to the Gulag.

If Arnold,  Brown and the others really believed in global warming/climate change, they would take only mass transit.

Meanwhile, the evidence keeps coming in that there just has been no global warming now for 18 years! See the chart at the top (click to enlarge), which stands as of June (then  add 3 months for Sept. 2014).

Global warming/climate change is just another scam to increase government control over our lives, increase taxes, sent profits to Al Gore and others — and make Arnold think he’s important.

    Gasoline going up maybe 50 cents a gallon will eat into discretionary income while the pressures to keep wages down(that globalists’ service economy) will squeeze government workers, the working poor, daff Stepford Wives, Prius huggers alike!

    Is there a Fiat in your immediate future? Globalists make lots of em for a reason. Eh?

    Is that slimeball back on the scene again? Everytime I see his photo I want to vomit. I heard that he recently slithered into Sactown for the unveiling of his personal portrait that will be on display. I heard it was painted by an Austrian (offshored) and depicted a much younger Arnold. Like back in his tinseltown days. lol. Oh, and I understand that his slimeball buddy Fabian Nunez was on site for the unveiling too. How’s that for two-of-a-kind? lol. I wonder how much more time Fabian’s kid has to do in the slammer on the homicide rap that Arnold cut in half on his way out the door? I fantacize that someday Arnold will pass me on the sidewalk and I’ll get the opportunity to call him a ‘Schweinhund’. Boy, did he ever fool us, eh? None of them (either party) are believable or trustworthy.

    Well, looks like the days of sub-$2 gallon gas are gone forever. They held for a few days after Obama was sworn into office (Jan/2009) then poof – gone. Today if gas goes under $4/gal we feel like it’s a bargain. Obama has turned everything he’s touched to manure. I wish he would spend the rest of his term on the golf course and leave us alone. Each and every time he makes a decision the nation suffers for it. A year ago he wanted to attack the Assad and the Syrian government and help the Syrian rebels (ISIS). Now he wants to bomb the Syrian rebels (ISIS) and help the Syrian government. He’s a loose cannon. Dangerous. I wonder if Putin will make him back down again? It’s like we have a circus clown in the White House.

    And don’t forget that he and algore have multiple mansions and also fly the world in private jets. And also don’t forget that what they are inflicting on us is Agenda 21: Make fuel and the cost of living so high that peons will have to abandon their cars and live in tiny houses.

    Well, Ahnode did say that most people need to be told what to do.

    I can just here him now responding to your criticism:

    Hear me now and believe me later, girly man. I’m the governator and I know what’s best for you and the rest of Colliefornia. So pay the outrageous fuel taxes and all the other taxes I supported and accept your lower standard of living like a man, not a girly man.

    Quite the love fest, too Joan Rivers could’t be there to ask ” who are you screwing” today? No mention of what was in the swag bags. At the Emmy’s the swag value was $50K, thats a lot of carbon credits.
    The head of the State retirement fund bragged about only investing in Green industry, you know like loan sharking.
    I suppose it gives the swells something to do while we wait for the solution that does not exist, as per the Browns.

    At least Brown, as a former Jesuit seminarian, has the zipper discipline to not be chasing the help around the governor’s mansion, as far as we know. Plus he’s really old….Plus he’s a flaming liberal, so he doesn’t have to outsource governance to his wife (is Brown married?).

    Somehow you all forget. You loved the blow up the boxes Austrian socialist fool.

    Globalists will gladly add a admin+profit internal surcharge to our carbon user misery costs…

    Most of you are chubby, affluent, blue haired urban pets chawing on Trader Joes finger food and chilled CVS wine watching that miserable haggered chick on the Alaskan ZERO cable show while posting Arnold hate nonsense on CWD ……..meaningless to the suffering proletariat.

    Appreciate your multi tasking talents, but your golden years just might get forcibly interrupted by the hoards who can’t even afford RIPPLE and Walmart boxed mac/cheese…..higher gas and food prices just might be the tipping point where you participate rather quickly in redistribution….
