....The graph on the left depicts the total cumulative global emissions (about 1.1 trillion tons) from 1946-2009, and the average California annual temperature over the last two decades. Clearly, California does not have a "global warming" problem caused by humanity's large increase in CO2 emissions. In addition, "global" warming is actually regional warming, and the U.S. is a major region that is not warming at all.
IPCC and climate alarmist scientists inform us that every human CO2 molecule stays in the atmosphere from hundreds to thousands of years, incessantly causing temperatures to increase. Thus, per the IPCC scientists, per the AGW theory and per the global temperature data (NCDC global temperature data), the cumulative 1.1 trillions tons of CO2 has caused an actual global temperature increase of about 0.44 degrees Celsius since 1945. That translates into an increase of 0.0000000000004 degree per ton of human CO2. With a little more arithmetic, we can then calculate what will happen to global temperatures if all 400 million tons of annual California CO2 were reduced to zero - the answer is nada, zilch, zero and nothing. The chart on the right reveals the impact of the California CO2 reductions on global temperatures.
So, the California politicians and bureaucrats are fighting the imaginary global warming problem, which does not exist for California, the U.S., nor many large regions of the globe. For the citizens of California, fighting this and other imaginary problems for the sake of empowering and enriching the state's elites has had terrible consequences, as documented below....

The continued rapid cooling of the earth since WWII is in accord with the increase in global air pollution associated with industrialization, mechanization, urbanization and exploding population.
Reid Bryson, Global Ecology; Readings towards a rational strategy for Man, (1971)
This [cooling] trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century.
Peter Gwynne, Newsweek 1976
If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder by the year 2000.
This is about twice what it would take to put us in an ice age.
Kenneth E.F. Watt on air pollution and global cooling, Earth Day (1970)
Just in case there are some stragglers out there that even see the slightest bit of unbiased credibility in the global warming myth.
Great quotes. I remember the scam clearly. Michael Mann was involved in that hoax, also. My recollection is he did some computer modeling for the frauds.
If all human CO2 emissions stay in the atmosphere so long where do the plants get the CO2 they “breathe?”
You must mean Hansen. He's the old hippy who works for NASA during the day and gets arrested at coal plants at night. Mike Mann was about 7 years old during the global cooling scare, got his PhD in 1998 and promptly published his infamous junk science hockey stick full of rudimentary errors, poor methodology and incorrect assumptions.
