    Prop 112 fails as voters say no to larger setbacks for oil and gas

    https://www.denverpost.com/2018/11/0...n-112-results/

    Ditto Washington state

    Washington state voters on Tuesday rejected Initiative 1631, a proposed carbon fee on fossil-fuel emissions that spurred the biggest ballot-measure spending spree in state history.

    I'm all for developing alternative fuels to fossil fuels, but we do not have an adequate substitute for oil and gasoline yet. Nobody but an idiot wants to drive a car that won't go faster than 50 mph.

    Putting a high tax on the fuel we still need is not going to speed up the development of alternatives.
