Governor Moonbeam Is Having None Of Donald Trump’s Climate Crap

Ground Control To Governor Moonbeam…

Speaking to a room of scientists Wednesday, California Gov. Jerry Brown vowed to protect the state's progress in the fight against global warming and challenge any attempt by Donald Trump to interfere with climate science.
"We've got the scientists, we've got the lawyers, and we're ready to fight. We're ready to defend. California is no stranger to this fight.. Whatever Washington thinks they are doing, California is the future."
And in true classic Jerry Brown style he suggested the state might even launch its own space program if Trump follows through with his advisers' efforts to end NASA's role in climate science.
"If Trump turns off the satellites, California will launch its own damn satellite," Brown said to loud applause. "We're going to collect that data."
"A lot of people say, ‘What the hell are you doing, Brown? You’re not a country. We will set the stage. We’ll set the example and whatever Washington thinks they are doing, California is the future.”
Brown threw so much shade in so many directions that solar panels in the immediate area experienced a brief decrease in output.  He singled out the “clowns” at Breitbart for mocking California’s efforts to reduce methane emissions from agriculture and landfill as merely regulating “cow farts,” although frankly, we think Gov. Brown may be missing an opportunity to enlist the inherent hilarity of cow farts in the fight against greenhouse gases.
