After Jerry Brown signed his 63 cent gas tax in San Francisco yesterday, he came down to Los Angeles to attend a screening of "An Inconvenient Sequel" at ArcLight Hollywood with fellow dope Al Gore.
Brown has some other business to attend to today, including signing another climate bill in Bell Gardens. His office released the following statement:
"Governor Brown will speak at the opening of Proterra’s new 100,000 square-foot zero-emission battery-electric bus production facility in the City of Industry and later join state and local leaders in Bell Gardens to sign AB 617 by Assemblymembers Cristina Garcia (D-Bell Gardens), Eduardo Garcia (D-Coachella) and Miguel Santiago (D-Los Angeles), which establishes a landmark program to measure and combat air pollution at the neighborhood level – in communities most impacted."
Brown is expected to sign the bill in Bell Gardens today at 1:30. KFI's Eric Leonard will be there to question him about whether or not California really has any affect on the climate.

"Although this is a much bigger cut than California achieved with its 2006 climate change legislation, it’s still nowhere near enough to have a meaningful effect on global warming overall. Even if California succeeds in making the new cuts and sticks to them for the rest of the century, according to calculations using a standard model of the U.N. Climate Panel, they will amount to a difference of .008 degrees Fahrenheit (.0044 degrees Celsius) — a minuscule drop in the bucket of the cuts needed in order to limit total global warming to no more than 2 degrees Celsius, the number climate activists have identified as a dangerous tipping point..."
