Congressman Tom McClintock says the answer to skyrocketing gas prices and high unemployment in the state is to mine our oil deposits. In fact the Congressman has his eye on the Monterey oil deposit in California.
Frakking is the process being used in the Bakkan reserve. An area of North and South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, and into Canada considered by some to be the biggest oil deposit discovery in 40 years. McClintock says the only thing standing in the way is AB32. The Environmental Defense Fund co-sponsored California’s Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB 32), Considered landmark legislation that set an absolute statewide limit on greenhouse gas emissions.
AB 32 requires California to lower greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, the equivalent of taking approximately 15 million cars off the nation’s roads. Congressman Tom McClintock wants to repeal the ACT and says if we don’t, gas prices will skyrocket.
To meet reduction targets, the California Air Resources Board (CARB), the lead agency responsible for implementing the act, is following a blueprint known as the AB 32 Climate Change Scoping Plan. You can learn more about AB32 on the web site http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/ab32/ab32.htm.
