Some environmentalists, however, say Brown's actions don't match his rhetoric -- particularly his recent decision to divert $500 million in cap-and-trade fee revenues away from clean-energy and pollution-abatement projects to help California balance its books.
Jerry Brown is the guy in the 1970's as Governor that killed the Sun Desert Nuclear plant that was to be built near Blythe California and supply somewhere around 1GW of base load power production to the California electric grid. Instead he implemented an energy efficient appliance program instead. In 1999 ENRON saw its chance to make a lot of money on California by manipulating the energy generation and when it was generated to drive up electricity costs. Now this prick is giving a 5 year window for green house gas amelioration or it will be too late!!! He doesn't even believe his own B.S. What the grid infrastructure needs is massive power storage along the grid to smooth out surges and sags in the grid when alternative sources of energy are used for power production.
