New Jersey Governor Chris Christie plans to return to the state’s clean-energy fund for another $279 million to narrow a budget gap of as much as $1.3 billion,
according to the state’s treasurer.
...“I’m going to make every effort to prevent the governor from taking this money,” McKeon, a Democrat, said today in an interview. “It’s up to us to stop him from raiding the clean-energy fund.” The funds are collected through a 3.8 percent surcharge on utility customers’ bills.
Labor could not convince the electorate that minute emissions of a trace gas would lead to catastrophic global warming. They were unable to show which part of the last 300 years of warming was natural and which part was of human origin. And Nature had the last laugh: the planet is cooling. Nature just does not obey legislation, computer models and Labor's ideology.
Labor treated voters as fools. They are not.
