Remember that California money that was supposed to save our grandchildren from CO2-induced fiery floods? They've decided to spend it on other stuff

I am pretty sure that just about everyone with a brain predicted this many years ago.
It simply was a given.

Never Ever trust a politician.

Hell you say. I am ecstatic that they're spending the money on something besides windmills, solar panels, maglev choo choo trains, or more damn "research" money lining the pockets of creeps like Hansen and Schmidt.

Al least there is the possibility that some of it won't be a total write off.

That's an optimum condition in a Democrat ruled state - that they might accidentally spend global warming money on something useful.

It also shows that Jerry Brown knows the global warming fraud is a sack of crap, even if he'll never admit it in public.

So, global warming money was spent on "other stuff?"

Didn't the Big Tobacco lawsuit money go the same route?
