California's Got Your Number!

Forget about your Credit Score. In California, the most important "score" you will have to keep tract of is your "car's" Global Warming Score (See Full Story). At least for now!

My guess is that the very liberal Californians will "eventually" attack Global Warming like they attacked cigarette smoking. Perhaps, you will have to display your "Carbon Footprint Score" or your overall "Global Warming Score" on you chest like Hester Prynne who committed adultery in Nathanial Hawthorne's famous novel titled "The Scarlet Letter". (Note: for those in California who don't or can't read, Hester Prynne was played by Demi Moore in the 1995 movie of the same name.) People with "large" carbon footprints won't be allowed in restaurants or public places like City Hall until they bring their "footprint" number down. They will be shunned by society. Expect support groups like "CO2 Anonymous" to spring up. New members will announce their "sins" and complete several "steps" of shedding their "carbon ways" in their road to recovery. California might have to impose a "Carbon Footprint Tax" or "Global Warming Tax" on those "bad people" who can't control themselves. Barbecuing might get you ten years to life! When our planet is saved, Al Gore's image will be proudly displayed on the sides of public building like Stalin's images in 1950's Russia. The crisis will be averted and California (who currently uses more fossil fuel in some cities than in entire countries) will be our hero.

As I've said before: "Only in America!"
