The study put the cost of AB32 at $49,691 per small business in California. For households, the estimated cost is $3,857 a year. Statewide that translates to $52 billion in added burdens for California families.

All this pain for exactly what gain? Not long ago, the New York Times reported that a new coal-fired plant big enough to serve every household in San Diego comes online in China every eight to 10 days, exporting more pollution to California and the western United States than such draconian environmental proposals would ever hope to eliminate.

Supporters of AB32 want to see us continue to export jobs to and import pollution from China.

As it is almost 10 days past June 15, the so-called crop insurance deadline, it is unlikely any farmers would want to risk planting canola now, White said. Canola takes at least three months to mature, so any crops planted today face higher risk of frost in September, so most insurance companies won’t cover crops seeded past June 15, White said.

Frost on average begins on Sept. 15 in Western Canada, he said.
