California Air Resources Board “Public Consultation on Cap & Trade Auction Proceeds”

This is the ending that Queen Mary Nichols gives to this Public” Forum. The meeting started at 1:30 with 10 members on the dais, and 2 panels of about 10 people total. Public input was allowed from 4:10 to 5:00 p.m. When public comments started all members of the panels left, and one by one most members of the dais (2 were legislators) left until there were 2 people left.

What does Mary Nichols do when she doesn’t like hearing what the public has to say about the CARB AB32 plan? She abruptly ends the public consultation hearing!!! It is amazing that after driving 1 ½ hours to get to this meeting. Then we sat sat through 3 ½ hours of public officials and stakeholders testimony only to have most of the 11 officials ignore the public comments or leave during that period is shameful. The meeting started at 1:30pm in SAC.

So apparently the problem here was that the floor was open to the public at the end of the meeting and all but 2 people officials left during the commentors speaking! Whats the point of having these things if all they do is leave when its the peoples right to have their voice heard by their representatives!!

They public members there who wanted to speak waited for hours to have their voice heard and they reps couldn;t even wait around to listen to the people who got them there in the first place?!


**As a side note, here is a recent thread regarding huge fines in australia for speaking out against carbon tax price increases**

Well, it's not like they're -our- representatives anymore. We live under corporate fascism now. If you have problems with the coming carbon taxes, take it up with your priest--or your psychologist. Don't bother "your" representatives with petty stuff like that. They have more important masters to serve....

Nothing new here....our "public servants" at their finest! Agenda? NAAAAAA.....they are honest people! Just shows off more of the same. Shut up, give us your money. You are too stupid to know what to do with it so hand it over. Here is a place for the masses to "occupy"!

She looks like a fat, pompous old witch-hag up there on her high chair. She'd better be careful, 'cause we're gonna try and sentence her along with the rest of 'em once we take this nation back.
