Within the past week, during my journey to my next classes at the University I get interrupted by fellow students to try to influence me to vote NO on Prop 23. I tell them I would have to look further into it before signing any petition. (They seemed really emotional about the proposition) It turns out that I think differently then the majority of my fellow students.
In the state of California, we have many ridiculous regulations such as the energy tax imposed on all businesses that put Co2 into the atmosphere. I feel that our recession and loss of jobs is way more important than some phony environment regulation.
I personally have yet to believe in global cooling (wait was it global warming before) OH now they call it climate change or whatever. To me it's a bunch of nonsense that is just drilled into us Californians, perhaps other places in the US or in the World about the environment. I have yet to find true evidence that signifies Co2 emissions as the leading and causing factor for global warming.
Anyways, my purpose for this blog is for you to think for yourself and di what feels right and not to let anyone else to think differently.
Whether you want to debate if this proposition should be passed or discuss the influence of authority on our everyday beliefs, all comments are welcome :)
UPDATE: sorry forgot to state what prop 23 stands for.
Prop 23 suspends implementation of air pollution control laws requiring major sources of emissions to report and reduce greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming, until unemployment drops to 5.5% or less for one full year.
