And environmentalist wackos, who are systematically dismantling the energy infrastructure underlying the state’s economy.
California’s environmental policies have made it heavily dependent on other states for power; generated some of the highest, business-crippling energy costs in the country; and left it vulnerable to periodic electricity shortages. Its economic growth has occurred not because of, but despite, those policies, which would be disastrous if extended to the rest of the country.
In the not-too-distant future, California’s loony energy policies will wreck the state’s economy. Then, I suppose, we might as well cede the state back to Mexico.
