California Almost Elected Mitt Romney

Democratic President Barack Obama has not had to campaign in California, because he is leading by 15 percentage points according to the most recent Reason-Rupe poll. But what if all 55 of California’s Electoral College votes were awarded to whoever wins the national popular vote? That almost happened this year, because Governor Jerry Brown signed the National Popular Vote bill. Can you imagine the shock if the “Left Coast” was responsible for electing Mitt Romney the 45th President of the United States?

Climate Alarmists Hate Good News

Two new pieces of climate change data caught my attention this week. One, from the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center (nope, I’d never heard of it before either), indicates that Antarctica is now surrounded by the greatest area of sea ice ever recorded in the region — some 7.5 million square miles worth, according to satellite data.

The other, jointly produced by the Hadley Centre of the UK Met Office and the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia, indicates that global warming actually stopped nearly 16 years ago. The finding, an update from the HadCRUT4 global temperature dataset, was compiled from more than 3,000 measuring points on land and sea.

Sierra Club: VOTE NO ON PROP. 31

Please vote NO on Prop 31. While this well-intentioned measure touts its devotion to reform, transparency and oversight, this flawed initiative actually creates a more complex and unmanageable governance system and undermines environmental laws.

ROSA KOIRE: NO on Proposition 31

I’m here to urge you to vote NO on Prop 31 and to tell you why.

Because we’re nearing Halloween I thought you’d appreciate this analogy.
Prop 31 is like the razor-blade in the candy apple. You aren’t expecting to find something dangerous wrapped in a nice package, and your inattention can hurt you badly.

STANLEY KURTZ: NO on Proposition 31

Wake up California. You are perilously close to ratifying Proposition 31, a sweepingly redistributionist and profoundly undemocratic transformation of your way of life, and you don’t even know what’s at stake.
