California Bottles Up New Business

California, The Nanny State, continues to trail-blaze America’s Green future with carbon caps, fuel-economy laws, even a South L.A. ban on new fast-food restaurants (to force residents to lead a healthier lifestyle). Now comes Attorney General Jerry Brown’s threat this week to block a proposed water-bottling plant in Northern California unless its effects on global warming are evaluated. 

According to AP’s report, Brown said the plant “failed to include an examination of whether the operation will contribute to global warming through the production of plastic bottles, the operation’s electrical demands and the diesel soot and greenhouse gas emissions produced by trucks traveling to and from the plant.”

Of course, AG Moonbeam’s criteria would kill all new manufacturing business in the state, but I suppose we should be used to such lunacy by now.
