California to be home to $600 million global warming research center

California will establish a high-profile, $600 million research center to devise solutions for global warming, the Public Utilities Commission decided in a 5-0 vote Thursday.

The California Institute for Climate Solutions will have a $60 million budget each year for 10 years. The money will come from ratepayers of the state's major utilities, including Pacific Gas & Electric, which serves much of Northern California.

. . . .

A ratepayer's advocacy group, The Utility Reform Network of San Francisco, says the $600 million will go on electric bills that also might increase 30 percent in coming years to fund state-mandated greenhouse-gas-reduction programs.

"By cramming all these well-meaning proposals into electric bills, we may be creating more problems than we're solving," said TURN Executive Director Mark Toney. "With the economy in a downward spiral, higher rates mean more and more Californians will be unable to afford essentials like lighting, heating or cooling their homes, and cooking."

As Dante was quoted in the "Inferno", the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

While this is bad news for california it will be good news for the rest of the country.

Also this might encourage more of california's illeagal immigrants to head back to mexico as well.

that's just what you need to make the world cooler - more huge offices filled with geeks and beardy activists. I hope they are hit by several blackouts.
