California governor Jerry Brown is earning his “Moonbeam” nickname all over again. This time he’s launching a satellite to monitor global warming. By the way, have you heard that California was recently named the poorest state? Wonder why…
The Daily Caller reports:
GOV. BROWN IS LAUNCHING CALIFORNIA INTO SPACE — TO FIGHT GLOBAL WARMING
California Gov. Jerry Brown announced Friday night at the end of a climate summit that the Golden State will launch a satellite into space at some point to monitor the scope of man-made global warming.
Brown has long had to live down the nickname “Moonbeam” after he pushed in the 1970s for California to occupy space. The Democratic governor is now accepting the moniker and pressing forward on a plan to send satellites into orbit to track pollutants.
“With science still under attack and the climate threat growing, we’re launching our own damn satellite,” Brown said in prepared remarks. “This groundbreaking initiative will help governments, businesses and landowners pinpoint — and stop — destructive emissions with unprecedented precision, on a scale that’s never been done before.”
Friday’s Global Climate Action Summit — and President Donald Trump’s nearly two year-long mission to drastically cut Obama-era environmental regulations – likely the rejuvenated Brown’s desire to catapult California to space.
The state of California desperately needs conservative leadership. What else could save it at this point?
