The contradiction is in green claims that 'global warming' is somehow
unprecedented, never seen before rates of increase. The fact that the
world was some 10 degrees cooler 3.2 million years ago, which the fossil
record exhibits no ill effect, then its rather obvious that the 'sky is
falling' claims are false hystrionics propagandized by the green left in
order to justify socialist control of the economy, wide spread taxation
on energy, expansion of resource rationing and welfare state lifestyles,
and surrender of national sovereignty to the UN.

What is going on in California is a symptom of their policies gone awry.
The media propaganda about how 'deregulation has failed' in regards to
the energy situation there, when the real culprits are the
green/socialist agenda and NIMBY attitudes calcifying the supply and
retail markets. The supply and retail markets are rigidly regulated, and
thus act like tectonic plates, while the rigged pricing structure of the
'deregulated' distribution market encourages the sort of start/stop
movement found in earthquake fault zones. The market thrashing in the
California energy market is tantamount to an economic-quake between two
highly regulated markets sliding by each other due to market pressures.
