"A political battle is brewing in Sacramento over how the state, which expects to generate anywhere from $2 billion to $14 billion annually in new revenues from the permit auctions, will spend the money."

Now why would that be, shouldn't the money collected from the global warming initiatives be spent on reducing global warming? Let's watch and see where they do spend the money.

Unemployment is about to increase yet again in Kalifornia with this new, radical, anti-American, anti-prosperity law. Don't worry though, as the law fails to make more money for Jerry JimBeam Brown because Jerry is already killing the economy and driving out business, Jerry will just propose another measure to increase taxes.

Soon enough there won't be anyone left in Kalifornia but welfare recipients and government employees. Then who will they tax? Who'se going to buy up the carbon credits in Kalifornia when it's better to just get out of that state all-together?

And yet the main job gains in California have been in providing the R&D and production for new energy initiatives.

California is not going back to the toxic hydrocarbon haze of yesterday so get a clue.

I've been watching the migration of businesses out of California, it's a shame, California used to be the world's 6th largest economy. Many people are moving to my area from California, leaving homes that are now rentals with receipts that don't cover the mortgages.

But liberals like to keep moving people from middle class to the poor class....

One of the best barometers to tell if a area is gaining or losing people is Uhaul.....

Get a quote one way from La to any metropolitan area of Texas......

Then get a quote one way from that same area to LA.

The larger the difference in the price will tell you were Uhaul needs the trucks moved to....
As the trucks go one way out of the state they need them to return..
Uhaul is having to drive trucks back to California to keep the supply up so renting one way to California will be a lot cheaper.....Than one way to Texas..

Far more directly, the more rightists oppose minimum wage, social security & health care increases, & wish increased support to rich people, the more it is apparent to God, country, the poor, aged, & injured, that rightists desire a monetary monarchy.

That may be one of the best, brilliant logical arguments I have ever seen on Topix. Kudos. And I think you may be on to something.

And now it is 8th largest at $1.89T, just shy of the UK and France at $2T.

Not bad for a single STATE of one country, hit hardest by the US engineered mortgage banking fraud that enriched the East Coast bankers. But investment in new ideas has ALWAYS paid off for California while the 'rust belts' of the east whimper and whine.

Thank you.

The same barometer was used to see what areas housing market would rebound the fastest....

Simply find out where people are moving to and that will tell you were to buy rental property....
Were to open a new restaurant.........

The next business opportunity this data will provide you is where to open up a property maintenance business.
If people are leaving homes will be sitting vacant and banks and owners will need people to mow the lawn, board the windows and try and keep the investment from devaluing even further.

That is like saying my 100 gallon tank of gas is half empty in my truck but I still have more gas than a Volkswagen

Yes 8th is not bad but look at the direction it is going......at a very fast rate......
Look at what Facebook is going to cost California.......LOL

Look at the number of business that are leaving the state this year and spending is still going up.....

That is like saying that my 100 gallon tank of fuel on my truck is still only half full but I have more fuel than a Volkswagen

Look at the number of business that are leaving the state every year and the spending continues to go up....

Look at what is owed in pensions to over paid government workers??

Look at how many cities are going bankrupt.......
San Bernardino is the latest.......

The ship is sinking and the kings are all leaving and soon only the rats will remain......

It was stupid the first time you said it. Repeating it doesn't make it any better. Comparing one STATE to a country is inherently unfair, other than to emphasize the massive economy of California and the robustness by which they are preparing for the future while still affected by the graft of the Eastern bankers.

The point you miss is that the state is going down the tubes......

Yes there still is a lot of fuel in the tank but there will be no more new fuel to fill it and the use of fuel is increasing.....

Soon and very soon the tank will be empty with no way to fill it as the income producers and job creators and tax payers are leaving in record numbers.....

As usual, the denialist right wingers ignore the WHY in their efforts for spin, spam and heckling.

Two things caused the three cities to go into bankruptcy.

1: A booming economy that showed no signs of slowing down (they misunderestimated GWB's stupidity) that caused them to invest in infrastructure for growth.

2: The east coast banks and their mortgage fraud scheme (abetted by GWB).

They didn't go bankrupt because they were too innovative or didn't emit enough smog.
