The irony is palpable.
With each passing day, the “train to nowhere” gets a lot more “nowhere” and far less “train.”
Earlier this month, California’s environmentalist Governor Jerry Brown announced that he would seek to exempt construction of the $60 billion to $100 billion California high speed rail boondoggle project from all those environmental regulations that he as Attorney General supported and enforced. Due to pressure from environmental groups, Brown has changed his mind.
From the LA Times:
After encountering criticism from environmental groups, Gov. Jerry Brown signaled Wednesday that he plans to withdraw his controversial proposal to protect the California bullet train project from injunctions sought by environmental lawsuits.
Brown’s staff told key environmental groups that he would no longer include modifications to the California Environmental Quality Act in a package of legislation this month asking for $6 billion to start construction of the high-speed rail project.
A spokesman for the governor declined to comment. State senators and their staffers confirmed the governor’s move.
Sen. Joe Simitian (D-Palo Alto) said there wasn’t “a lot of stomach” for Brown’s proposal among his colleagues in the Legislature.
Liberal officials: "You got it!"
Enviro kooks: "We want cleaner, more efficient transportation alternatives!!!"
Liberal officials: "Here you go! High-speed rail!"
Enviro kooks: "Hold on a second! Building that will violate those strict environmental laws!"
Liberal officials: "Shoot! Okay, can we have a waiver?"
Enviro kooks: "Hells, no!"
Liberal officials: "Aw, please? Pretty please? With artificial sweetener on top?"
Enviro kooks: "We reiterate: hells, no!"
Liberal officials: "But this is what you wanted!!!!"
Enviro kooks: "HELLS, NO!!! Find some other way!"
Liberal officials: "There isn't any other way!"
Enviro kooks: "That's YOUR problem!"
Liberal officials: "We give up!"

It would be really funny if it weren't so sad. The sad part is that they themselves can't seem to see it. It's one big Chinese finger trap for them.The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.
