NOTHING is going to happen in California. Their budget is a joke. They have... the biggest deficit out of every state...
California has had a budget surplus the last two years. They expect to do so again this year.
It is not that we don't have enough H2O on this planet, quite the opposite. To purify the sea water is not just possible, but we are doing it already.
Seems simple enough. What happens to the sea (and everything in it) when we start converting it to drinking water for however many billion people it is that have used up the ready supply of non processed drinking water? I have to believe there'll be some serious consequences from messing with the first link in the global food chain.
California and green have little to do with each other...Much to my surprise, I learned that you can't even buy a diesel car out here.
From what I can tell, California is about regulations that make people who don't know much feel good.
We bought a VW Jetta TDI Sportswagon in good ole Los Angeles just last year. I can give you the name of the dealership, or others we looked at that also sold said diesel based cars. Pretty sure they're still selling those, though they run out of stock pretty quick when they ship. Mod me redundant as others have said the same thing, but if ever there was a post deserving the mythical -1 Wrong moderation yours is it. Maybe you could get a -1 Troll instead since your false statement is ensconced in lovely trollish sentences?
The average consumer has no way to utilise the sort of programming freedom that Stallman would like to see people have. They need a checked-out, validated, "App Store" where both useful and useless things can be downloaded and will never, ever compromise their computer. And if an application is found to be bad after it is released it can be "recalled". Period.
Call me crazy but I think you just described GNU/Linux. And call me crazy again, but I think the average person can utilize that sort of programming freedom right now.
