Dear Assembly Member Berryhill:
am a voting citizen who resides in your district. My name is Robbie
Glenn. KILLCARB.ORG is a website made popular by Dr. Bill Wattenburg on
his radio program heard Saturday and Sunday from 10pm to 1 am on KGO in
San Francisco. Dr. Wattenburg is asking his listeners to contact their
representatives and demand legislation to put an end to the California
Air Resources Board. This web site will track progress and publish the
replies that come back from Senators and Assembly Members. You are my
representative and I want the Board abolished.
The California Air
Resources Board (CARB) has become a rouge state agency. Their budget
for this year alone could pay the salaries of some 8500 teachers. That
is not all. CARB’s current effort to replace every diesel engine in the
state will cost 20 to 30 BILLION dollars and cause a financial burden
on an estimated 30 thousand business owners, putting many of them out
of business. 30 thousand businesses represent 150 thousand jobs that
could be lost if these companies pull up stakes and move from
California. If that is not enough, new diesel engines that meet the
CARB standards are less efficient and WILL ACTUALLY ADD TO THE AMOUNT
OF CARBON DIOXIDE IN THE ATMOSPHERE! CARB claims that this must be done
because particulate matter in the exhaust of diesel engines is a health
hazard to Californians. They base this claim on a report written by
Hien T. Tran, a CARB employee. Hien T. Tran LIED on his employment
application, stating that he held a PHD from UC Davis - when in fact,
he bought his PHD from a diploma mill. He is still employed by CARB.
WHY? These facts are documented.
By the way, Another Billion
dollars is budgeted by the state to pay for the replacement costs of
these new LESS efficient engines--that alone could pay the salaries of
another 10 thousand teachers in the state of California. Can we afford
that in these economic times?
I am asking for documentation in
writing that you would support and/or introduce legislation to abolish
CARB so that I may document you support on the website. If I do not
hear from you, I will assume that you support wasting our money by
supporting CARB. Thank you for your time and attention in this
Citizen of this great state with a vote and a voice.
