Ding-Dong! The bill is dead!

It’s dead. The big, bad climate change bill is dead! That’s the good news.

The bad news? Go to thomas.gov and search by the phrase “climate change.” There are over 200 bills introduced on the subject. And even this big, bad climate change bill could rise from the dead in 2011 — or pop up in increments this fall or in a lame duck session after the November elections.

In DC, bad legislation never really goes away — it’s just recycled.

Driven by UN treaty, this new business of climate change is completely dedicated to achieving success via subsidies.

In this economy? Americans are disgusted with all this socialist/communist/centralist policy.

The big climate change bill is dead but so is Congress! Gallup’s 2010 “Confidence in Institutions” poll ranked Congress dead last out of 16 institutions. 11% of Americans said they have “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in Congress, down from 17% in 2009 and a percentage point lower than the previous low for Congress, recorded in 2008.

It’s the lowest ever for any institution! Ouch! But Congress is in good company. The Executive branch and the Judiciary branch ranked almost as low as the Legislative branch!

The next battleground on climate change chaos to be forced on citizens by government? California in November. If Proposition 23 receives enough YES votes, AB32, the “Global Warming Solutions Act” (the “green jobs” farce), will be suspended until unemployment falls below 5.5%.

What strikes me as odd about this is that AB32 was promoted as a “green jobs” bill. But analysis showed its socialist underpinings. All those “green jobs” were to be bought at excessively high prices with taxpayer money — at the direct expense of blue and pink and orange and purple jobs. With California unemployment at an all time high, we can’t afford this nonsense.

What does this socialist thought process look like on the ground?

Take a look at this conference in San Francisco, DC West. It celebrates layers of government jobs, “green opportunites,” built on taxing what is left of California’s shrinking private sector.

So, should I vote YES or NO on Prop 23 this fall? With the death of the climate change bill in Congress, I’d like to see legislation or a Proposition to simply KILL AB32 for good, not just postpone the pain.
