California: Draconian water law – no showering and laundry the same day!

This sounds like living is really going to be cozy in the coming years in California. Since the average use now is about 100 gallons of water per person per day and Jerry is going to reduce it almost in half. It will be interesting to see how all the high rollers deal with this. No doubt just paying the fine, but it sure could get expensive.

California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a draconian new water-rationing law that limits per capita daily water usage to less than the amount needed to shower and do a load of laundry.

To ensure compliance, the government of California urges the use of creative surveillance systems to spy on all residents. Utility providers will be obligated to report on violators, and urban retail water suppliers “shall use satellite imagery, site visits, or other best available technology to develop an accurate estimate of landscaped areas.”

Assembly Bill 1668 establishes a limit of 55 gallons per person daily as the standard for indoor residential water use, starting in the year 2022. Violators will have to pay a fine of $1,000 per day during normal seasons and $10,000 per day if “the violation occurs in a critically dry year immediately preceded by two or more consecutive below normal, dry, or critically dry years,” the law states.

According to the attentive folks at The Organic Prepper, this allotted water ration exceeds the amount required for taking a shower and doing a single load of laundry and excludes taking baths altogether.

Snip….

Writer Daisy Luther notes that an ordinary load of laundry uses about 40 gallons of water, while an eight-minute shower uses some 17 gallons of water. A bathtub holds 80 to 100 gallons of water. This means combining a shower and laundry on the same day would use 57 gallons of water, two gallons above the limit. H/T and more at  Breitbart and  Organic Prepper

Al Gore and his galloping paranoia – or how to sell his ‘sequel’

No doubt you have caught the new purge coming. Time to rid ourselves of our pets because they are adding to Global Warming. Whats happening? Russia, Russia, Russia wearing thin with the media? So lets’ resurrect Climate Change again. Let’s help Gore’s new sequel to his ” convenient lies’

While trolling through the news of the day,  I bumped into Al Gore who breeches into the news cycle. First glimpse was his pronouncement that he indeed had won Florida. Okay, the guy needs to feed the fake news cycle, I will let that one be. Then I bumped into this little video clip and what became clear is the poor feller had lost his marbles. I mean can you blame him? All but for some “hanging chads” he might have been king. So in case we weary of Trump just remind ourselves of the IED’s in the form of Gore and Hillary that we didn’t step on. Enjoy the clip… I think you will. We will learn about “rain bombs.”

CNN had a Town Hall meeting with Al Gore called “The Climate Crisis” where he made even more predictions about the end of the world from global warming.

John Kerry: ‘There would have been no Paris Accord if there had been penalties

We hear the sky is falling now that Trump refuses to redistribute our wealth to the rest of the world via the Paris Accord. But you know the drill. John Kerry, the master negotiator that he is, rises up in his righteous anger yesterday. Let’s just look how his mind worked when we first heard his words of wisdom on the agreement when it was first approved. I am sure “Public Shaming” would have really done the trick in compliance. It’s working great for his Iran deal he negotiated.

“So that is a serious form of enforcement, if you will, compliance. But there is no penalty for it, obviously, but if there had been a penalty, we wouldn’t have been able to get an agreement.”

On December 14, 2015 I posted this and see if you can follow his logic.

Here Kerry opines on two insights on the Global Warming “agreement.”Kerry: Public Shaming is ‘Most Powerful Weapon in Many Ways’ to Enforce World Climate Agreement. The other astute observation?

While discussing the global climate change agreement made in Paris over the weekend, Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged on Fox News Sunday that there wouldn’t been an agreement at all if there were binding penalties for countries not meeting emissions standards.

President Obama, Kerry said, was determined to “get an agreement that would move the world in the right direction.” As such, Kerry said that the “best thing we can do” to get countries to reduce their carbon emissions was a “mandatory reporting requirement.”

In a bit of circular logic, Kerry said that countries would have to retool their reduction levels every five years to meet their commitments, but he couldn’t say there was anything beyond their own word to force them to so.

“The best thing we can do in an effort to try to change people’s thinking is to do this mandatory reporting requirement,” Kerry said. “The mandatory reporting requirement has to be updated every five years. Every five years, it is mandatory that countries retool their reduction levels in order to meet the demands of meeting the curve of reduction to which they have committed. So that is a serious form of enforcement, if you will, compliance. But there is no penalty for it, obviously, but if there had been a penalty, we wouldn’t have been able to get an agreement.”

Ivanka Trump to “review” Paris Climate Change Agreement

I thought when we got EPA Pruitt as the man for the job, the nonsense over climate change would end. But no, we have Daddy’s little girl Ivanka  to “review” the Paris Climate Change Agreement. Pruitt and she will head on over to Europe for the meeting.That sounds like a swell combo after Pruitt said the agreement should be ended. I am in no mood for more nonsense after last week’s fiasco with the budget and Obamacare. Just what is Ivanka’s knowledge base for this review? Here we go:

Ivanka Trump has been tapped by her father, President Donald Trump, to review the United States’ commitment to the Paris Climate Change agreement, signed by former President Barack Obama as an executive agreement in 2015 without congressional approval, the Associated Press is reporting.

The agreement requires countries to cut greenhouse emissions on a country-by-country basis, with Obama committing the U.S. to reduce carbon emissions by at least 26 percent below 2005 levels by 2025.

Last month, in an interview with FOX and Friends,Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt said that the “Paris [agreement] is something that we need to really look at closely. It’s something we need to exit, in my opinion. It’s a bad deal for America. It was an America second, third, or fourth kind of approach.

“China and India had no obligations under the agreement until 2030,” Pruitt added. “We front-loaded all of our costs.”

Solar Panels increased emissions of a gas 17,200 more potent that CO2

Forget how many birds are fried when getting too close to a solar panel, including Bald Eagles, now we hear that a byproduct of solar panels causes even more problems. All of this over the cause of so-called “Climate Change” the existence of which has been in effect since the beginning of the earth apparently. Here tis:

New federal data shows a potent greenhouse gas — that’s also a byproduct of solar panel construction — is on the rise.

solar-panels2

Nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) is a key chemical agent used to manufacture photovoltaic cells for solar panels, suggesting government subsidies and tax credits for solar panels may be a driving factor behind the 1,057 percent in NF3 over the last 25 years. In comparison, U.S. carbon dioxide emissions only rose by about 5 percent during the same time period.

NF3 emissions are 17,200 times more potent than CO2 as a greenhouse gas over a 100 year time period.

The research was financially supported by the Technology Foundation STW, which is a governmental agency of the European Commission.

Dem State Attorneys General to police Climate Change dissent

Looks like the States are making an ominous effort to go after free speech. Anyone who denies Climate Change could find themselves on the wrong side of the law. Forget that we need energy as the very lifeblood of industry and sustaining our very day to day existence. Why are we going about this suicidal course? Boggles the mind.

This from the Washington Times:  A coalition of Democratic attorneys general in 16 states announced Tuesday an unprecedented campaign to pursue companies that challenge the catastrophic climate change narrative, raising concerns over free speech and the use of state authority to punish political foes.

“So he apparently has decided that anyone who disagrees with him on ‘global warming’ should face investigations, fines and penalties and be silenced,” Mr. Morano said.

“There have been those who have raised the question, ‘Aren’t you interfering with people’s First Amendment rights?’” said Mr. Schneiderman. “The First Amendment, ladies and gentlemen, does not give you the right to commit fraud.”

Standing beside former Vice President Al Gore, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said the state officials are committed to “working together on key climate-related initiatives,” including queries into whether fossil fuel companies like ExxonMobil have committed fraud by deceiving the public and shareholders about the impact of man-made carbon dioxide emissions.

Two states — California and New York — already have launched probes into ExxonMobil, while attorneys general from Massachusetts and the Virgin Islands indicated Tuesday that they would follow suit. Virgin Islands Attorney General Claude Walker, an independent, is the only non-Democrat involved in the campaign, called AGs United for Clean Power.

Hillary Clinton ‘We’re going to put coal companies out of business’

Five seconds of hell from Hillary Clinton for the bitter clingers in rural America. Does anyone really think that West Virginia will turn into the “Green” capital of the world to replace the jobs they have had for generations? Note the question she is answering at the bottom of the clip.
