California will benefit from global warming law
Sometimes when you do the right thing, it's good for you. Here's an article about California and a new global warming law:

Global Warming Law Will Boost California Economy, Study Finds
Daniel B. Wood, The Christian Science Monitor: "When California made global headlines two years ago for a landmark law requiring a 25 percent cut in industrial greenhouse gases by 2020, some critics said the environmental advantages would be symbolic and net job losses significant. Now, two studies released this week by the California Air Resources Board, the state body charged with overseeing the project, claim to show that implementing the emission-cutting measures under the pioneering law would actually benefit California's economy and public health."

Of course, I also wonder if some End-of-Time Christians think that such an end would be a GOOD thing, bringing on the Apocalypse and Rapture and all that.

Yes, they do.

I lived in California for a long time before a moved east, and I have, time & time again, seen initiatives to improve the environment actually improve the California economy. It has constantly bewildered me that people in other states don't see the possibility of this doing the same for theirs! I have always assumed that there is a basic prejudice against California, and that it they do it, then it must be a kind of a nut-job plan.
