My Advice to Californians; Get Out Now

By Alan Caruba Wednesday, October 30, 2013

If you live in California, I have a bit of advice. Get out now while you can afford the gas to load up the van and head north or east. You won’t be alone.

According to “Crazifornia: How California is Destroying Itself and Why It Matters to America”, about 150,000 Californians have been fleeing the state each year of late. “In fact,” wrote Laer Pearce, “Los Angeles alone has lost more households than New York, Miami, and, incredibly, the economically decimated city of Detroit…combined.”


The tide of traffic leaving the state is likely to increase. According to a news release from Earthjustice, one of the innumerable environmental organizations bent on destroying every form of energy that has fueled the growth of the American economy, the California Public Utilities Commission (PUC) has “finalized a groundbreaking decision to build innovative high-tech energy storage systems that will lead California toward a future of clean, renewable energy and away from dependence on fossil fuels.”

You remember fossil fuels, oil, natural gas, and coal. The “clean, renewable” energies are wind and solar because, of course, the sun shines all the time and the wind blows all the time. Or not.

By definition, energy “storage systems” can use mechanical, chemical, or thermal processes to store energy; these processes range from battery technologies to energy storage within compressed air or molten salt. If that sounds bizarre, it is.

According to Will Rostov, an Earthjustice attorney, “Clean, renewable energy sources will shape our future, whether the dirty antiquated fossil fuels industry likes it or not, so it’s excellent to see California getting there first. It took years by environmental advocates and state regulators to reach this point.”
Wind and solar mandates are breaking Europe’s electric utilities

Actually, Europe has been there for some time now. In England’s Yorkshire Dales, they’re tearing down four wind turbines that have been around for twenty years and “have not worked in years.” Indeed, across Europe there is a lot of buyer’s remorse for having embraced wind and solar. As Marc Morano, the editor of ClimateDepot.com, noted in an October 17 article, “Wind and solar mandates are breaking Europe’s electric utilities.”

“Last week the CEOs of Europe’s ten largest utilities finally cried uncle and called for a halt to wind and solar subsidies. Short of that, they want subsidies of their own. They want to be paid, in essence, not to produce power.” Thanks to mandates to use electricity from wind and solar Europe’s energy costs increased 17% for consumers and 21% for industry in the last four years.

California, in addition to requiring comparable use of wind and solar power while pushing to close coal-fired plants and keep some nuclear plants shuttered, will require its utilities to purchase 1.3 megawatts of “energy storage” power by 2020.

The San Jose Mercury News reported that “The first-in-a-nation mandate is expected to spur innovation in emerging storage technologies, from batteries to flywheels. Once large quantities of energy can be stored, the electric grid can make better use of solar, wind and other technologies that generate sporadically rather than in a steady flow, and can better manage disruptions from unpredictable events such as storms and wildfires.”

This is another very expensive Green pipedream that, like other California initiatives, would prove impossible to achieve and will be abandoned or ignored.

Since neither wind nor solar produce electricity in a steady, predictable fashion that enables utilities to ensure a flow of electricity to consumers, “energy storage” is the new, idiotic, alternative way of providing electricity that has been in effect since Edison first invented the turbines to produce it.

There is, simply put, no reason to require “energy storage” if “dirty, antiquated fossil fuels” were used. Wind and solar provide just over 3% of the electricity used in the U.S.

According to the Western Region Deputy Director of the Sierra Club, Evan Gillespie, “Fossil fuels like natural gas are a dead end for the people of California, the power companies, and the entire planet.” If you listened to Strela Cervas, Coordinator at the California Environmental Justice Alliance, fossil fuel use is a conspiracy against “low income communities and communities of color overburdened by pollution, in particular from power plants. California does not need any new gas-fired power plants.”

Those low income communities might not agree, along with all the rest of the Californians, in the wake of the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006. While California strives to save the state from a warming that has not been occurring for more than 15 years, the new mandate that 33% of the state’s energy come from wind and solar is estimated to cost $114 billion, all of which will come out of the pockets of energy consumers.

According to Pearce, “Legislators, regulators, lawyers and environmentalists have driven up the cost of doing business in the Golden State until it has become 30% greater than in the neighboring states.” The result of 40 years of anti-business (and anti-energy) policy has caused a decline in the state’s standard of living. “California’s median household income plummeted by 9%—nearly twice the national average between 2006 and 2010, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.”

This is the kind of environmental insanity that has been at work at the federal level since Obama was elected in 2008. Billions have been lost in loans to wind and solar companies that went bankrupt within months and years. Think Solyndra. Now apply that same insanity to the whole of the nation as the administration continues its “war on coal” and actually laments the growing access to natural gas and oil due to hydraulic fracking technology.
War on the provision of electricity; the lifeblood of the nation’s capacity to function

The U.S. will produce more oil than Saudi Arabia this year. It has several centuries’ worth of affordable coal, scads of natural gas, and could expand its nuclear power generation if it wanted.

California is leading the way as it drives out its citizens and businesses, leaving behind only those too poor to leave; those dependent on a range of welfare programs that “redistribute” money from “the rich” and the middle class. They are turning the entire state into Detroit.

It is a war on the provision of electricity; the lifeblood of the nation’s capacity to function.

Thank for the scare tactic that one day us little tax playing flocker will go up like baloon, and pop
With a weird sound. Only them folks who wish to see
Us fail is saying these thing. For we aren't suppose
Use clean energy all of us should just die from poisoning.

I was waiting on some honey but there aren't no Queen bee,

There won't be no weird sound at all.

You'll just fail and fall in upon yourselves.

Its simple.

You gleefully, willingly and blindly vote to tax, spend and regulate yourself, your kids and your grand kids into misery, and claim its for the common good and only the "Elite" prosper, you will fail.

You have been warned.

History itself is its own warning.

Do you have a problem with clean energy? Take a look
At all them state that's still mining; use texas for instant you can see what you breath. You not only think we're taxing our self to death now we should
Double down if we could have disaster then we all turn blue from xarbon monoxide fume.
I hope nothing go wrong in Texas where they mine energy the cheap way and all other red state as well.

Depends.

If you mean "Clean Energy" with the Obummer and his pals giving hundreds of millions of our tax dollars to "Clean Energy" companies that fail in short order and that hard earned American tax money is lost, I absolutely do not believe in "That" kind of "Clean Energy"

No responsible adult wants to breath bad air. Also, any responsible adult knows the government cannot regulate an economy into "Clean Air" Especially based on recent experience. Only the private sector can bring about "Clean Energy" at a price people can afford.

When someone invents a replacement for oil and its by products, then we might have "Clean Energy"

That ain't gonna happen anytime soon slick.

There is no replacement for oil and its by products.

None, NADA, Zip, Zero.

Keep talking dennis car is running on water last time I check' we did gave brasil some money to experiment with the unleaded fuel, they made grass
And water as combustible as kerosene, somthing you
Enjoy at the pump now no more stinking fuel
To make you trow up when you smell it.

Thank to clean energy investment research. I tell
You what why dont you go mine the coal your
Self so you can get your lungs fill with carbon
And die like the others who dont want renewable energy efficiency.

With all due respect to the OP, I suggest that Californians remain in California. You broke it, you stay and fix it. Leaving your house in forclosure and running away does damage to your state. Your neighbors get stuck with the fallout of you not paying california taxes, upside down mortgages.... also you ruine everything you touch. We do not want you. You are a poison and a blight!

May God smite thee with lightning and flesh eating parasites if you even think about spreading your BS other states!

I dont mess with the tap water buddy since you guys
Dont give a F about what you inhale or drinks
The GOP will don anything find oil thinking we can
Become energy independent as soon as we find somthing beneath.

Environmentalists already warn of potential danger
By putting ourselves at risk while exploring the land and water' we already seen the side effect of BP)
Down there in the golf, its Seem you haven't learn a lesson from that aftermath.

Go drink some Chinese Water Breath some Chinese Air

Eat some Chinese Rice or Noodle's or even feed Fido a Chinese doggy biscuit or Kibbel. Who Knows what they have to make it out of ??? Bone's ??

One technology they forgot or could not steal going into the Industrial Revolution.

EPA and United Nation's should address THEIR PROBLEM which is NOT OUR PROBLEM: Did it too their own population -the others can't grow a thing - any where either they have had several hundred year's to learn.

WHY ?? Now Address Socialistic Health Care

The Greatest Humane Medical Tragity is unfolding in China :

Should tell us the truth -- Then maybe we and other nations would do what ever is in our resources to help. Not to be ---
