California Air Resources Board (CARB) met on Thursday, May 24. On the agenda was discussion toward deciding where and how to spend the billions raised from cap-and-trade carbon trading in the state.

At the public meeting was Betty Plowman, who attended the meeting to present a letter on behalf of the industries that CARB calls polluters, the California Construction Trucking Association (CCTA) and California Dump Truck Owners Association. The letter describes CARB’s threats to these industries, induced by the Board’s regulations that are, in turn, based on junk science. The letter’s signatories indicate intention to seek reparations for the regulated class under CARB’s repression in California.

CARB Chairman Mary Nichols let the clock conduct the agenda and closed the meeting at 5 p.m. before Plowman could present the letter. The world according to CARB disallows any voicing of concerns.

“It was just another day in paradise, wasn’t it?” said Plowman in her personal communications on the meeting. “I thought of ‘The Price is Right’ announcer saying ‘come on down.’ Everyone get their hands out; decide where this windfall should go.”

CARB disallowed the presentation of public concerns. Mary Nichols, in her authoritative overreach, simply adjourned the meeting when dissenting perspective tried to be heard, as seen in this video:

Why does the picture of that Nichols character remind me of the SMERSH broad in the James Bond movie "From Russia with Love".
Remember the one with the shoe dagger drenched in poison, who tried to take Bond out in the last part of the movie.
On a more serious side. You folks have endless problems to contend with your government trying to turn your state into some stone age society. It is sad.

I wonder if garbage trucks fall under the category of ‘dump trucks’?

If so, wouldn’t it be nice if there was a buildup of about 60 days of garbage all over California before the citizens took back some of their own powers???

If they are going to try and build all that high speed rail system in California—some one needs to tell me how they will do so without dump trucks.........

They just get a bigger case of stupid every day in the land of fruits and nuts.
