I 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.
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
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 important matter.
