California, Chinese sign ‘climate’ deal — allows Chinese to steal U.S. technology

The Montreal Gazette reports:

The memorandum of understanding signed with China’s National Development and Reform Commission was another aggressive move by California to combat climate change. The state has already passed the nation’s most ambitious greenhouse gas limits, including a so-called “cap and trade” system that put a price on carbon pollution in the state.

  1. What a moron.! As if China cares about global warming,
    America’s stupid climate change policies or what will happen with the rest of the world?
    China only cares about China…. and possible world domination.

Maybe Brown is so ideologically blinded that he is doing this, but I’d still be looking for some personal benefit.
