CARB’s Going into Truck Leasing Business with Your Tax Dollars

Central Valley Business Times, has the story: State offers small businesses help in leasng trucks

Small business owners are being given an incentive by the state of California to replace their older diesel trucks with clean new equipment.

The objective of the lease-to-own financing program from the California Air Resources Board is to encourage early compliance with CARB’s on-road diesel vehicle and tractor-trailer greenhouse gas regulations.

“This is a program that benefits small fleets and

owner-operators,” says CARB Chairman Mary Nichols. “It provides them with an additional way to pay for a cleaner truck, even if their credit isn’t stellar.”

The authority for this action is AB-32 the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006. Here we are six years down stream and there is no significant global warming, even though CO2 emissions continue to increase.  Although emissions are slowing in the US due to our tanking economy, not because of the AB-32 junk science, which is based on stollen data, destroyed data and smears of credible scientists that have pointed out the “Big Lie.”

CARB is loaning out money that Sacramento does not have, for equipments that is not need, based on policies supported by fraudulent science and political corruption. And, your are still wondering why California has a $21 billion cash deficit?

Really you do not understand?  Oh, your were faking surprise!
