The Assembly speaker, Fabian Núñez, who sponsored the bill along with Assemblywoman Fran Pavley, said at a news conference here, "We feel that California has always been a leader in protecting the environment."
"We now have moved it to the next level,” said Mr. Núñez, a Los Angeles Democrat. "We’d all like to see California one day be carbon free."
This makes me a little nervous, particularly in light of the ban on liquids on airplanes. I mean, if they’re not going to allow my body fluids and they’re not going to allow my carbon, there’s not going to be much of my body left to do anything with. I suppose it’s only a matter of time before they find calcium harmful and start banning peoples’ skeletons, etc.
