“Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.” ~ Ronald Reagan
The State of California continues it’s progressive leftist slide off of the deep end with the passing and signing of a new law in the Democrat-controlled state that will attempt to regulate cow farts.
The law, passed by Democrats and signed by Governor Jerry Brown, a far-left kook nicknamed “Governor Moonbeam” for his out of this world policies, is an attempt to please the false god of global warming, a pagan mythology based on a fraudulent science that gives government the ability to do what it’s always desired — tax air.
CBS San Francisco has the report:
SACRAMENTO (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown has signed legislation that regulates emissions from dairy cows and landfills for the first time as California broadens its efforts to fight climate change beyond carbon-based greenhouse gases.
Brown’s move Monday targets a category of gases known as short-lived climate pollutants, which have an outsize effect on global warming despite their relatively short life in the atmosphere.
Environmentalists hope that tackling short-lived pollutants such as methane now would buy time to develop new and more affordable technology to reduce carbon emissions.
Thus far, human flatulence has not been mentioned, but just give them time.
