yes, they will brainwash children for free but mom and dad were asked to fork over $50 a head.

Jeremy, teachers like you are why I homeschooled my kids.

All students, including home schooled, were free.
All others, including CSU faculty, had to pay.

And what a deal! The GVC conference at Sierra Nevada was $35 for one day. TWTS was $20 a day, or $50 for all three.

Yes, brain washing children - how nice.

I wonder if they told these kids -

in order to have a green job you have to have a bunch of taxpayers with real jobs to pay for it.

Oh, I bet they left that part out.

Did they explain to the children why California residential customers pay an average of 15 cents per kilo-watt-hour for electricity while states like Washington and Oregon and several dozen others pay one third less?

Did they explain why California business pays double the elecricity rates of other states like Texas - where all those "dirty" Texas oil companies come from?

Did they expain to the children how clueless and easily duped the California electorate is or where they trying to create more of them?

California residential - 15 cents per kwh
Oregon and Washington residential - 11 cents per kwh

California industrial - 11 cents per kwh
Texas industrial - 6 cents per kwh

---

Did they tell the children going "Green" was the shorted path to poverty?

Transport them on a heavily subsidised transportation system and give them a FREE pass to the conference. More examples of how to get by without paying your own way! What lessons were learned?

The reason we hate the students is that they have been taught to ask questions and search for truth.
Once they start asking questions they quit listening to our propaganda and start voting for their own best interests!

The reason CA electricity costs more is because WA and OR use RENEWABLE energy! Ya, Buster! That stuff you hate so much!
PG&E is in bed with out legislature--Corporate Rule. You just LOVE the corporations, Buster!
Why are you so upset now?
YOU are why we pay so much for electricity!
Fool.

Yes, conserving resources is stupid. Let's just waste them. Let's keep polluting, keep wasting energy, just use, use, use all while complaining that we have "spent our grandchildren's future" without caring about them having clean air, water, or even landfills to dispose of their garbage.

It's all about government jobs.

That's why they are screaming so loud.

While they claim to care about the evironment they stand in the way of nuclear power and force the burning of fossil fuels and the even more green house gas emmissions.
