California Gov. Jerry Brown recently signed legislation with a goal of having all the state’s electricity generated from “clean energy” sources by the year 2045. Brown’s also eyeing starting a climate change alarmists’ version of Trump’s “Space Force”:

From Reuters:

California Governor Jerry Brown on Friday pledged to launch a satellite that will track and detect the sources of climate pollutants, his state’s latest effort to challenge the Trump administration’s skepticism about the science of climate change.
[…] “We’re going to launch our own satellite. Our own damn satellite to figure out where the pollution is and how we’re going to end it,” Brown told a gathering of political, environmental and business leaders.

The satellite probably won’t be programmed to notice all the pollution coming from the private jets of super-wealthy liberal celebs and others, and there could be other issues:

Which I’m sure will use fossils fuels to launch the rocket, thus creating they very thing they are trying to avoid. 😳

As long as California launch’s it with a net-zero energy rocket… powered by electricity derived from only renewable/sustainable sources… anything else would just be contributing to climate change.

I bet they launch it from a different state since launching rockets is “known to cause cancer in the state of California.” https://t.co/VsnDu9u0sC

We don’t doubt Brown’s plan will run into a plenty of self-inflicted snags.
