In a one measly on-line blip (no offense NBC News), California’s governor stockpiled enough ammunition of well-articulated talking points to deconstruct the environmental movement — an early and brilliant Christmas present to global critics.
In an attempt to admonish the janitorial efforts of the forthcoming Trump regime in cleaning the wastes of bureaucratic policy currently clogging the flow of innovative practice leading directly to financial and beneficial results, Brown circumnavigated sensibility in grasping at the suffocating legions of irreproachable scientific dogma hampering progress. NBC News reports that the veteran politician and known climate alarmist went on a full-scale attack on the pruning effort of Trump in cutting away at the financial black hole of NASA and fired cruise missiles at Texas Governor Rick Perry’s stance on vehicle emissions. Here are some of Brown’s greatest hits from the article…
-On Trump cutting the budget to NASA’s climate research program- “If Trump turns off the satellites, California will launch its own damn satellites.” Is the esteemed governor aware of the financial, labor and energy requirements in successfully launching a rocket into low earth orbit? With the addition of a separate vehicle, complete with moving parts, the task become ten times as challenging and costly. Who is going to pay for it?
-On Rick Perry and less-stringent vehicle emission standards in Texas- “Rick, I got some news for you: California is growing a hell of a lot faster than Texas. And we’ve got more sun than you have oil.” Apparently, Brown fails to grasp that in the current stage of development, solar power is not commercially viable and may never be, due to the glaring performance inefficiency of energy collection cells. While nanotechnology is improving efficiency within the laboratory, the question of developing feasible mass production capabilities remains.
-On the possible closure of federally-funded and state-funded research facilities- “Keep your hands off. That laboratory is going to pursue good science.” The problem is not with science when it comes to tax dollars, but supporting science and research that is both practical and beneficial from a societal and financial standpoint. There currently exists a plethora of researchers who are riding the coattails of the “green movement” or receiving public funding for untenable and unrealistic projects destined for the intellectual junkyard. Brown, who serves on the State’s University board of regents, obviously has professional relationships with tenured researchers and academics and this conflict of interest should be noted to voters.
Good science and utilizing sensibility towards finding a solution should be rewarded and Trump’s cronies will be asking some tough questions throughout the scientific community for the next four years.
