Say Good Bye To Hollywood (And LA, San Fran, Sacramento...)

From the LA Times: Gov. Jerry Brown and legislative leaders embarked on a new era in California’s effort to combat climate change Thursday when the governor signed a law committing the state to some of the most drastic greenhouse gas emission reductions in the world.
“What we’re doing here is far-sighted, as well as far-reaching,” Brown said at a signing ceremony at Vista Hermosa Natural Park in downtown Los Angeles. “California is doing something that no other state has done.”
The legislation, passed after a difficult political battle in the Capitol, cements the legal framework for California’s climate policies for years to come. While previous law required the state to reduce emissions by 2020, the new measure, SB 32, sets a new, more aggressive target for 2030....
Under the law, the state must reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to 40% below 1990 levels, a goal that will likely involve significantly more electric cars, additional renewable energy and drastic cuts in emissions from dairy farms and other key industries. 
A second measure signed Thursday by the governor, AB 197, shifts the trajectory of the state’s environmental policies. It creates a legislative committee to oversee regulators, giving lawmakers more say in how climate goals are met. It pushes the state to take stronger steps to curb local pollution, rather than simply seeking a statewide reduction in emissions.
I live and work near the California border.
When you drive through Needles, CA., which is on the border of Arizona and California, you will find a dead town.  Teachers will work in California but live in Arizona where the cost of living is much cheaper and housing, gas, and government services pretty much sucks. 
But on the other hand, they will have government regulations that harass, steal and put many of people out of work.
So, congratulations to California and their democrat officials and politicians who you elected to kill your state.  You are almost there, California is a dying state.
