Biden Administration Wants Electric Vehicles To Replace Gas Guzzlers
"President biden's administration has ideas to get gas powered cars off the road. The government could pay people scrambled vehicles. This happened during the great recession. And a program called cash for clunkers. npr's camilla domino reports. President biden has embraced senator. Chuck schumer's idea to pay people to turn in gas cars and by electric ones like cash for clunkers battery powered edition and when josh lynn. I heard about it. He was surprised. I thought all the research including my own had sort of killed the comeback. He's a professor at the university of maryland. And he's one of many economists who found out that the original cash for clunkers just wasn't that effective it was supposed to be an economic boost for auto companies and in eco friendly initiative to get rid of old cars with gas mileage. Every check sent a clunker the crusher and a customer dealership floors. At least theoretically in fact it did cut emissions a little but despite spending billions of dollars in overall didn't affect total new vehicle sales all that much many people who participated in the program probably would have bought a new vehicle anyway so not much bang for the tax payers buck and that's the big concern about trying this tactic again that it just won't do very much in which case why spend hundreds of billions of dollars on it unique. Consider if the money can be used for something else sebestyen custody. Janos is the lead researcher at the new urban mobility alliance. He says why not send that cash to public transit or bikes on the other hand. Maybe a cash for clunkers approach could be improved by giving it a laser focus on getting rid of the cars that pollute the most in california's san joaquin valley. Air quality is a huge problem so the valley air district is trying to get the oldest polluting vehicles off the road. Drome mayfield use to drive one of those eighty nine chevy truck old truck. It was raggedy hog. It often needed a jump and no it did not pass california's smog. Tests but after twenty five years it's still ran mayfield's feels heard about the program writing big checks to get low income drivers to chuckled clunkers. Like that truck. So he gave it a look. He says his truck was actually smoking. A little when he drove up to find out more there that they will give me nine thousand five hundred dollars toward the down payment electric car. And i said why mayfield hadn't ever thought about electric cars. Let alone thought he could afford one. But a subsidy like that meet a used nissan leaf not just affordable but irresistible are got and they were driving so good passing a barbeque gas as you. I didn't have to put the oil in and used charge back a cellphone. So happy getting mayfield. Out of his raggedy old truck was a big upgrade to his life. Having a reliable vehicle is huge and his part of the local pollution. Problem went from significant zilch five years later. That leaf is still zipping. That thing is a jet. The pilot program in the san joaquin valley was so successful that it was expanded and lynn economist says focusing on the cars that pollute the most could make a national program more effective at fighting climate. Change to yes he says. The original cash for clunkers was not an efficient use of money but instead of giving up on it maybe we can learn from it. Camilo domino npr news.

Governor Newsome says the order will probably continue, he says A formal announcement is likely to come tomorrow after the latest virus infection numbers, sir, considered It's 5 47. It's time for us to go in depth on coronavirus relief. President Donald Trump signed the $900 billion stimulus bill late last night after keeping the nation on stand by most of the weekend. But SKF Becase Brody Fernandez tells us Americans could see even Maurin their pocketbooks than the originally promised. $600. Yeah, Joe a lot more so there's a lot going on right now and a lot of moving parts, even though the president did sign the bill. This is what the president said about the bipartisan Simeon's packages. Days before he did sign it. Months ago, Congress started negotiations on a new package to get urgently needed help. The American people. It's taken forever. However, the bill they are now planning to send back to my desk is much different than anticipated. It really is a disgrace. And I spoke with ABC s Capitol Hill correspondent Catherine Folders earlier this afternoon to discuss what really happens next as the House just passed a bill for additional relief. And now the Senate must decide on Bill, aiming to put more money in the wallets of Americans, he asked the president told thing here was that he wanted those $2000 checks while his administration has been negotiating this You know, since the very beginning, and they were fine with those $600 checks? Well, it's the last minute he kind of threw a wrench in this year. So look, House Democrats immediately. We're on board, they said. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that sounds great. We'll hold a vote on it, so they're going toe hold a vote on that today, which is expected to pass in the Democratic controlled house now. The catch Here is it's a proposal by the president Will Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell bring this to the floor and it's very much likely dead on arrival in the Senate. Republican senators are unlikely to vote for this, so it essentially in my view is a loyalty test getting Republican senators on the record But now the really important question is that loyalty test she's talking about how important is it with an outgoing president, just less than 23 days left in his term? Why don't I don't think it matters much one because they'll have to go back to the drawing board. This takes months to negotiate. Uh, but at the same time this Congress expires on the third of this month. So there's just not that much time s Oh, look, it's likely. The president says that he is agreement with the House and the Senate to bring some of these votes to the floor. TOC gin working on this legislation, But the reality is, they really don't have that much time to do it. Yeah, Joe, and again the house approving the additional relief for Americans Toe up that number from $600 into your wallet for individuals to $2000 and for married couples, $4000.

"This is the John Batchelor show. Congressman Devin Nunes, representing Fresno and the San Joaquin valley. Twenty two California has a podcast that I pay close attention to and this way because he's writing in house intelligence having served as chair of house intelligence these last year, he turns to the question of Al Qaeda and tangible threat to the United States and his conversation with Tom Joscelyn a senior fellow at the foundation for defense of democracies and a colleague both of ours. We've talked to him over the years. Congressman Devin, a very good evening to you your conversation with Tom is especially helpful for people who are coming to the story. Not having lived through the last nineteen years, and Tom is very careful to expedite where al-qaeda came from the leadership. What do you take from? Do you believe the American people are keenly aware of the scale of this threat or of they've been diverted by say Russia and ISIS last year is good evening to thanks John. Tom Joscelyn is irregular to your show, as you know, and I'm a big fan of his he does a great job at the long war journal. And really, there's no better expert on Al Qaeda and their affiliates, and even ISIS and other terrorist groups anywhere around the world. But he he just a top notch guy in one of the things that I do on my podcast is is different than yours. You're you're more current events. You're doing the events of the day. I like to do things that are a little more historical. And so what I asked him to do is walk the basic person through that maybe has never heard anything ever about Al Qaeda, walk them through the beginnings. And let's do a whole couple shows teaching people about what Al Qaeda was how it formed what it became all the things that they did. And then of course, where they're at today. So that was all we had part one last Friday is very very well done and part two will be posted tomorrow, the Al Qaeda threat, your measure, the scale of it is it contain now or is it larger than ever? It really is. It's contained growing and some dangerous parts we had the obviously, you know ISIS. We're really was was came out of al-qaeda. And so you had essentially for for lack of a better definition. You had an al-qaeda explosion that turned in ISIS, as you know, we've spent now the last few years cleaning that mess up kicking them out of their caliphate. The problem is is that they still simmer in places. And and they grow into a lot of other spots around the globe, including many parts of Africa sub Saharan Africa demogra- that also when western Africa, and so those are simmering growing small affiliate affiliates starting here and there, but the bottom line is, you know, these guys at at some point there will be a terrorist attack again, which is why we and our allies. Have to remain vigilant and tracking down this radical Islamic threat, one of the mysteries of Al Qaeda. Not just where it came from because it had its origins with a franchise idea that bin Laden a well educated and extremely plush life in Saudi Arabia had back in Afghanistan when the Soviets were the invaders and the US through the CIA was aiding the resistance, they are early resistance the mujahedeen. However, we turn to the story of Somalia much in the news because a new member of congress from this Amalia delegation that transferred to America during those years of the twentieth century, Somalia and Mogadishu remembered as a pretty good combat movie Black Hawk Down and a sad story of the Clinton administration. Your measure congressman. Did the did the United States and the Clinton administration recognize al-qaeda that early after the Mogadishu tragedy? All you're you're giving away from what was on a podcast last week. John and sounds like you might have learned something as I did. I did I did not know I was not aware of those clear connections to Al Qaeda that Tom Joscelyn is tracked down and talks about on last week's podcast. There was very very interesting to me. And because we missed that signal. It reminds me that there have been a lot of mess signals over the years. Out two thousand and one is a notable one med al-qaeda hit us, and we knew that there was going to be an attack. That's our which is the note would be in New York City in Washington. So what I take from Tom's recitation is that Al Qaeda is never going to be where we're looking for it. And there will be signals, but it's in the nature of the US government. I guess that we miss we miss signals, and you only have to miss one for for catastrophe. That's right. Which is why we have to remain vigilant. And where they're they're all these these pockets, we have to use our counter terrorism capabilities that we have built up over the last twenty years that are actually are very very good very capable. I just have to make sure that we use them against terrorist radical Islamic terrorists and any other terrorist versus turning them onto political campaigns, Afghanistan, Afghanistan was a staging area of bin Laden moved there after smart after Somalia at not after Somalia after he was kicked out of Sudan. He moved there and Afghanistan now is a winding down phase. We're told their various words used by the Trump administration following the Obama administration following the Bush administration always winding down in Afghanistan. But it's Tom Joscelyn and his colleagues, Bill Roggio has opinion and their colleagues that Al Qaeda remains a potent threat, and is based either in Pakistan or Afghan. Ghanistan and Devon I don't think that Tom or Bill or any of them have a solution for this other than vigilance. Yeah. That that's the challenge. Right. So, you know, I don't believe that the Trump administration is is moving in the right direction. Here. I do not believe that we should be working with the Taliban at all. But you know, look, I tried it Bush tried it. So this is not just this is dot Trump's fault. Just it just looked up the bottom line is there's no solution. What we've done there for the last eighteen years is not is not working something new needs to be tried. You know, I would prefer them to try something else other than negotiating with the Taliban. But now they're going back through the, you know, the so-called experts handbook that existed the State Department and with the our intelligence agencies and they're going through the same chapter again. And they're going gonna try it again, my vice to has been to the White House to just skip that chapter and go and try something new that hasn't been tried yet. Because this is this has been tried, and and it will not work at the close of part one of your conversation with Tom Joscelyn. You mentioned the Tom's tweets. He uses Twitter the long war journal, which is where Tom and Bill Roggio and others file uses tweets. But that Tom Joscelyn's tweets never content any content and it's puzzling. Tom and to you. What what does that mean? Devon. Well, it's this has been going on for a couple of years where Tom Joscelyn who's not political at all. He doesn't talk about Republicans or Democrats yet he talks about al-qaeda lob radical Islam, and it's just a it's just another ridiculous example of how Tom's offload who is who is an expert on counterterrorism who's trying to get out. Good information. But you know, his thoughts and at his historical background doesn't jive with what some algorithm that was created by left-winger somewhere within the Twitter sphere working for Twitter working for the Twitter police and they've been policing his tweets for two years. But Devin, it's a total puzzle. It wasn't until you brought it up to Tom that it occurred to me I've been looking at that for two years and not asked why why why would you why would anybody want to censor? Tom Joscelyn who's doing their hard work of analyzing what the US is challenged with in Afghanistan, and Pakistan, and Sudan and Syria. That's what he does. It's it's it's totally ridiculous. And it's the admit it's a great argument for what I'm sure many of your listeners are aware of that. I'm taking Twitter to court for the processor ship. You know, we give Twitter and Facebook, and these other social media companies think a lot of people don't realize they get special deals. They're not treated like your company, John that you work for Cumulus. And they're not treated like, Fox News. And and the major newspapers they have a special. Special deal where they're supposedly treated as a public square. And in fact, they're not they're censoring conservatives, they're censoring people like Tom Joscelyn because he writes about things at the left doesn't want out there. So they are clearly in bed with the left. Whoever is drawing up there.

Black liberation theology airs endorphin, and we also predicted that his policies as a radical leftist would fail. Then we after eight years, we kept giving you in two thousand sixteen the horrible economic numbers more debt than all forty-three presidents before him combined thirteen million Americans think about that. Thirteen million more on food stamps. Eight million more in poverty, lowest labor participation rate since the seventies worse recovery since the forties.

He didn't burdensome regulation, and he did it said he'd fight for repeal of ObamaCare. Well, Republicans in the house and Senate they screwed that up. But he's still got rid of the mandate individual mandate, which is big. President said that he would stand up to dictators. We'll get what he did a little rocket, man. We have another summit.

"Top counties for agriculture in California are in the central valley Kern to Larry and Fresno are neck and neck when it comes to total value and rank for agricultural production. Kern county leads the way barely with seven point two billion dollars in production. There leading commodities are grapes, almonds milk and pistachios to Larry county a second with seven billion in egg production there. Leading products include milk table, grapes. Cattle and calves and oranges. Fresno county is third also at seven billion dollars in production, almonds, poultry pistachios and milk. Are there agriculture all highlights where to Sacramento county place? They're down. Lebron's twenty fourth place with four hundred ninety five million dollars in agricultural production in two thousand seventeen here in Sacramento, county, wine, grapes, smell poultry and pairs Bartlett. Pears lead the way our friends to the south do quite well when it comes to agriculture. Production. San Joaquin county comes in seventh with two point five billion dollars of production. As you might think wine grapes lead the way from San Joaquin county along with milk, almonds and walnuts. Stanislaw county comes in fifth and California agricultural production with three point six billion dollars leading the way for Stanislaw almonds. Melk chickens and nursery products, especially fruit and nut trees grown for farms throughout the west and which county comes in dead last while you can probably guess that San Francisco county with three hundred thousand dollars in agricultural products. Which might even surprise you that they have that according to the latest statistics their output is in field crops and apiary products coming up we look at California's huge export market for its farm goods. Which countries? Do you think are California's biggest customers will find out a little bit later on the KFI farm? Our? Farmers and ranchers throughout the United States, depend on internet access for various tasks every day, including global positioning system guidance for farm equipment, plus vital data collection and transmissions data like soil conditions do point temperature wind speeds before sending it all to a cloud based system, and then from there they have to make real time decisions regarding factors like seed population and fertilizer rates the data needs to be collected and access quickly. I successful production in a global agricultural economy, and California farmers if you live in a rural area, you know, exactly what I'm talking about. High speed internet is still slow out in many areas of California something like one point four million Californians lack access to broadband internet. In fact, at any speed. So what's being done about it? Well, there was a roundtable held recently at the California Department of food and agriculture and. It was all designed to put it out there on the table that what does rural California need. There's a lot of urgency to getting technology high-tech egg to the farmers, and in fact, all of rural California, the co founder and co chair for the recent California Ag tech roundtable strategic initiative is Robert gore, and he was part of a select group that addressed the California Department of food and agriculture about the needs of rural Californians, especially the need for high speed internet, and Robert gourds, a pleasure to talk to you. Tell us about the California Ag tech roundtable strategic initiative kick roundtable is is a unique pro Bono venue of key eight regulators in your bag researchers and and farmers and grower organizations. And then also some Ed tech providers innovators people who invented various application, and you're. Lead. In was absolutely correct. Friend of mine gave it fun the director conservation. And a Davis PHD said the information highway in rural California is a rutted dirt road. He had just returned from Africa. And he compared of rural California to a third world country. In fact, in some cases, it's actually worse. We tend to get caught up in in high tech and tech because we're the home of the Silicon Valley, but we're also on the San Joaquin valley there roughly Jason there's no connecting the two most of the San Joaquin valley, which includes or of the nation's largest Ed counties, there is no connective. So when we get all caught up in crowns, and automated tractors irrigation programs that are so precise. They can pick out an individual plan. That deliver water and. Has two sides. If necessary. Factors that in in rural California that connectivity doesn't exist at all. And there is as you pointed out again correctly, some urgency most growers on we conducted research with western growers in the west hill. Unity college in Coalinga. Lamar Firebaugh most growers want disconnect within the next two years to comply with state regulation on water management. Are they need to report other data? They also throw in the middle of the field and find a bug. Be beef. To send a photograph or the bug way. And they can't do that. So literally there is no connection. And there is no tech. And I'll add one more thing. No, I know careers for use in rural California who otherwise leave the farm or can't get jobs because there's no way for them to apply. What it is. They're learning. That's a very good point that farmers across the country are making if you want us to stay on the farm you've got to help our families to keep us in a rural setting. Yes. And that's the point we made with the board of food and egg in the California Department of food and agriculture we have partial solutions that funding and other ecological expertise posed by the public utility commission by tech providers. But no one is coordinating all of what we asked before and the food and egg leadership has to do is to step up right now. And coordinate. All of the people we've gathered who each have a part of the pollution. Bring them all together and get this thing salt, probably the first big need. I would think is some sort of infrastructure. There have been auctions in the past. But I remember from the first auction. There are a lot of big promises and those big promises turned out to be much smaller. How do you how do you guarantee that really is going to be high speed internet absolutely essential, people tend to underestimate the needs of farmers. They don't realize how much technology is involved in how essential the need. For speed is what we're working on is with the public utilities commission. Michener Martha was monarch savvy and several San Joaquin valley growers. Don Cameron, the president of the port of food and others to coordinate a pilot in the five points area with the helicopter. To make sure we get this. All right. Had a demonstration at UC Agan, natural resources. David Bill a copy? Danish company of all blue sky had just brought connectivity to village in Africa. And you're right again advancement in connect as well. They have oracle towers. Many towers, and you can tilt them up from the bed of a pickup. And they're less than five thousand dollars and the cost per household to connect them is all is less than five dollars. So we're we're busy evaluating how to bring this to rural California at reasonable cost. And it's not just for egg. It also delivers remote healthcare distance learning Oregon career, advancement, and then also public safety. You talked to any farmer who's got a high price piece of equipment out in the middle of a field. They have no way of knowing. If it starts to move in the middle of night. That's another service of high-speed connect, they can wire all their what role do cell phone company such as Verizon and AT and T play in this one of my friends once described one of his friends is having a mouthful of Howdy and a handful of gimme man telecoms have played that role. So far, they be candid haven't been helpful. They're willing to attend meetings and talk about technical parameters. But when it comes down to it. They don't see the population. And that's why we're trying to take one additional step, and that is the finding rod band rural. Connectivity. As economic fell that is job creation because in rural America, anywhere in California in particular, there never will be the population density. But in any orchard in any field. There's there's a proliferation of sensors that are all wired or all trying to connect what we want to do is make sure there is funding available not just based upon population density on. Are there any satellite providers satellite providers of internet service involved in this? No, it's either going to be microwave, and I'm no engineer. So I'm shaky ground. You're literally, but it it either microwave or or or line of fight sell depending on where you live. We we are quite serious in putting together. Egg-based careers for disadvantaged community in the central valley, northern California. There are people I was gonna say kid, but that's not the case. There are people who are in their mid twenties. Other sons and daughters of farm workers recognize their next career move was based on technology and in order for that to happen. There has to be activities, though, an adjunct delivering on farm. Connectivity is delivering careers and the next step up for farm workers. It's going to be a long haul to get the infrastructure in and get the financing for it as well. There's over one point four million Californians without access to broadband internet at any speed how you're gonna keep them down on the farm if they don't have high speed internet. That's the job that Robert gore is attempting to tackle through the California Aztec roundtable strategic initiative, Robert gore. Thanks for a few minutes of your time today. Thanks again.

But all kids, not just the children of the governor and a filmmakers should have a good life in California. Should be ripped away from their parents at the border. Be left, Hungary. Davy left, Hungary when politicians seek to pour billions into a wall that should never be built. But all this focus on the wall has taken some attention away from the federal government's efforts to deport undocumented immigrants already here, California is trying to protect them with its sanctuary state policy. But in article in the New York review of books shows that the policy may also have some unintended consequences, particularly in the rural farming community of the San Joaquin valley, author and journalist Michael Greenberg wrote that article it's called in the valley of fear, and in it, he really focuses on the culture of fear among the migrant workers in the San Joaquin valley. And there are some really compelling descriptions in it with families afraid to leave their house afraid to go to the market afraid to be in public at all because an ice officer might be lurking in a car across.

"Now. As we add to this story. This is not the first time that something like this has happened within a two week period. Something very similar happened in the San Joaquin valley about two weeks ago just before Christmas. An illegal immigrant named Gustavo Garcia who had been deported two times and was in the country illegally killed two people. And there's another one who apparently is in critical condition. Here now is Republican congressman Devin newness from California. Today explaining to Fox News what happened in that case. And again, this was almost two weeks ago. There was someone who was in the country illegally had actually been deported twice had been arrested. Just prior and then was released because of the sanctuary city law. The sheriff couldn't hold this Garcia Mr. Garcia who went on a rampage for over twenty four hours killed two people possibly third. We don't know because I think there's one is still in critical condition in the hospital because this person the scar SIA went around the entire county several several communities and was shooting people at random. This Dabo Garcia illegal immigrant. Just driving around the county shooting randomly at people. And he'd been deported twice. And the sheriff of Stanislas county said, you know, what? The guy who shot our police officer. Gustavo Arianga the suspect. We knew all about him. We knew his history we knew he had two prior to you is we knew he had ties to a very dangerous street gang. And we wanted him outta here. But sanctuary laws prevented us from moving him. Let's go to the phones right now. Mitch from fair oaks gives us a call. I Mitch how are you tonight? How you doing? I'm doing. All right. How about you doing? Okay. You know, it's it's pretty sad when we can't seem to distinguish between legal immigration and illegal immigration. And we think that they're both the same. You know? That's that's just like saying that if you go to the grocery store someone who buys something in the store is equivalent to someone who steals something in the store. It's just not equivalent. I think it's about time that we do something in terms of legislature in the state to to basically undo what what what's wrong. The majority of the people here believe that illegal immigration, and legal immigration are the same thing. No. I think Mitch people are smart enough to distinguish between the two, and that's why I have said earlier in this program. I said it yesterday. This is very much a story about immigration because you have one Man Who Wasn't an immigrant who was not born here who was here legally defending the streets of our cities. And then you have another man who was not born here, but was here illegally and killed killed the good cop. I'm a I'm a first generation American family came here to this country. They waited fifteen years they follow the law. They follow the process to come here. Legally. They were added their backgrounds were checked, and they proved that their income was enough to wear that they could sustain themselves, and I just don't get how we have this equivalency here in this this, you know, we're we're all high and mighty and moralistic if we accept that both of these classes of people are the same, and that's just not right? No good. People are welcome here. I mean who doesn't want good people to come into this country and make our country better. That is home. Erica was founded bad people do bad things too. Others. I don't think that in my neighborhood. I don't want them in my neighborhood. I don't know about you. And I don't know, you know, you talk about change. And when we look at the new governor who's coming in Gavin Newsom. I don't think he has the political wherewithal to get this done. I mean because I don't think he and his mind wants to change this sanctuary state law. And when you look at the makeup of the legislature. I don't know that there's the political clout there in terms of changing the sanctuary laws in the state of California. I just don't I don't see it over at the capitol. I don't know if you do. But I just I I know that maybe that's wishful thinking on your part, but. Yeah. Right. Mitch. Thank you for the phone call. I appreciate it very much on the other side of the break. I want to touch a little bit more on this whole idea about the sanctuary city status because Nunez address that directly and in short. He said. I think that this is leading to murder. I think sanctuary laws are leading to murder in the state of California. What do you think? Wait till you hear what he says nine one six nine to one fifteen thirty one eight hundred eight three four fifteen thirty will this begin to be the beginning of a referendum on sanctuary laws?

To ban, fracking and new oil expiration in their county, but fed Trump state so, sorry if the Bill goes ahead with his plan the way I understand it it's going to Mark the first time since about twenty twelve two thousand thirteen that the agency has issued these new leases for oil and gas exploration in our. State And you know here comes the center for biological diversity the CD which immediately has vowed to fight the move Now California is the, nation's I, think third largest oil producing state after Alaska and Texas with much of the production being concentrated in the southern San Joaquin valley here and in southern. California so the Trump administration is trying to sell off public land's, again says, Claire, Lakewood a senior attorney for the center biological diversity in San. Francisco the federal government as it is now present day overseas about fifteen million acres of public lands in California and leases them for private used by. Contractors so, Claire Lakewood said the environmentalists are particularly concerned about the possibility of a big increase in hydraulic fracturing or. Fracking if you prefer because of the controversial process of extracting oil or gas by injecting chemicals or other liquids into subterranean. Rocks Which is being done all over the country and is produced a nothing burger of in the way of negative results All of those stories about you know weird stuff coming out of spigots and all of that Folkloric So this notice released yesterday by the. Beal it allows for thirty days of public comment of which you know damn Goodwill's is going to be plenty and specifically seeks public input on these issues and planning criteria related to hydraulic fracturing It's good news it really is but you know the environment is safe fracking can contaminate groundwater it can increase earthquake risks they've called upon the governor to ban the practice fed Trump state The. Energy industry says there's no evidence of any environmental harm from cracking The US, Geological Survey has said repeatedly that when conducted properly If poses little or no risk to groundwater So you know, although governor Brown is allowed fracking to continue the legislature has passed a law that requires energy producers to get. Additional permitting if they want to practice fracking now I'll tell you something and, I'm still going to stick to my guts excuse me Brown is just mad because he's not doing it I Brown has, long wanted To begin fracking over the Monterey shale shelf he's just been at a loss as how. To get around the environmentalists That's a fact. That's a fact and he's wanted to do this for about two years But he's just. Had that hurdle of how to get it around the environmental left which supports him vehemently. But he knows that there's so, much money to be made for the state of California Now with private contractors getting involved the money's not going to be his earlier. This year when, the administration the Trump administration began, the process of repealing all of these federal regulations of fracking the attorney general sued the administration talking two goanywhere fracking's become this hot button issue you know this especially in California here most notably I think still in. The San Luis Obispo county area where the county soups over there have placed measure on the November ballot. That would ban new oil wells in new fracking operations and unincorporated regions of the county Defect can override that No As I understand that a relatively small amount of oil is produced on private land in the price canyon area of San Luis Obispo. County So we'll see where all of that goes over there So something, else just, to enrage the environmental left but the employment the. Revenues the resources that'll be explored a benefit to everybody A benefit to everybody and you know you've got, the US, Geological Survey and, so many involved that have. Studied this over and over in. The states have, do allow fracking saying you know when done properly there are no, dangerous here there are no in Erin, dangers so I mean let the games begin and let the noise begin because you know the, noise is going, to be, very very loud and with this increased push to Sort of get the. The forest policies, rearranged so we don't have these hideous fires of this nature anymore, California's on the right track California is, absolutely on. The right track and I'm happy If you wanna comment be my guest, pro or con You don't have to be.
