That doesn`t him a hypocrite. It just means he has a lot of money, can spend it on whatever the hell he wants and he frikkin` donated $1 million for cause.

An all-of-the-above solution is the way to go. We don`t have the technology to replace oil/coal on a mass scale unless we go full-on nuclear, and that`s not going to happen unless we take away standing to sue from the environmental wingnuts.

To understate, the USA is the Saudi Arabia of coal and shale oil- we`re not going to run out of carbon based fuel for centuries to come. Humanity has gone from steam engines to the moon in 100 years; by the time we run out of fossil fuel, we`ll have found a replacement.

As far as global warming, I`m sure China and India would be happy to have us cripple our own economy by instituting cap and trade insanity (or maybe not since their #1 export market would dry up) while they go on merrily building fossil fuel and nuke based power plants. If global warming theory is right, we`re effed anyway w/o global cooperation, so why strangle ourselves with green legislation?

@Madest.

Prop 23 is actually seeking to strike down PREVIOUS legislation which mandates increase efficiency, etc. until the unemployment for California is below 5% for four consecutive quarters (NOT 12 consecutive months, on average for a year, etc.) Unemployment in California has been hovering between 10-12%

In the past similar mandates have not only been met but exceeded.

The existing legislation only fines people for not showing deliverable gains. For instance if GM doesn`t meet standard X but shows that they have technology in the pipeline that meets or exceeds X fines may not be levied or may be reduced. In this way California will be able to generate money from people not even trying, while increasing the efficiency of existing technologies which means less waste which means lower over head. This solves two problems for California, they make more money and spend less:

Income - overhead = Surplus/Defecit

Whomever created this video is as idiotic as that fat lying phk Michael Moore. The only facts given here is that JC said we should use less fossile fuels. Anyone here disagree with that? Not me! The whole rest of the video merely states that rich people own bunches o chit. It also doesn`t state that the CA govenor and CA teachers union are also against prop23. Oh wait, this video also doesn`t state that 2 oil companies are for prop 23: Valero & Beacon.

yeah! and nuclear power waste will decay to half is mass naturally right?

You just have to live with it for 10 thousand years (for comparison, the egyptian culture is 6000 years old).

Nuclear is not the answer

vv Nuclear power may cost a lot at start, but it generates 15 TIMES more electricity than similar money`s worth of wind farms, and doesn`t stop working when it`s calm.

Everyone seems to be forgetting that wind farms NEED BACKUP POWER or they`re entirely useless. So you have 1 Gigawatt of wind power? Great! You also need 1 Gigawatt of non-wind, non-solar backup. Usually coal or natural gas.
Go green? I don`t think so.
Go nuclear! All the way baby!
(which is ironic since nuclear is the MOST green power, even cleaner than hydro, eh?)

Good point Dixxy. I hadn`t thought of it that way. I didn`t realize how much of the world is still using fossil fuels for power..So everyone else should be conserving while those of us using hydro and wind and nuclear power don`t really have to worry about it. LOL.
One has to wonder why we are still using fossil fuels to generate electricity. All other sources (besides nuclear maybe), while having a higher initial cost, are renewable and cleaner.
I think that we should be pushing to eliminate fossil fuels as a source of power. It`s so dirty and wasteful.

Hydroelectric power? That`s great, I see what you did there. But it`s not the point you were trying to make...
From your post, you said that energy never runs out, so you can leave your lights on all the time with no consequence. But since most of us get our electricity from fossil fuels (and not hydro power like yourself), your argument is wrong.
Energy as a general concept, won`t run out, that`s true. But the energy provided from fossil fuels WILL run out.

I don`t know about you, but my energy come from hydroelectric power. As long as there is water, there is energy. Leaving my light bulb on doesn`t make the water go away.

"It`s also worth noting that he rents his properties out, buys carbon credits, donates millions of dollars to indisputably good causes, uses the properties to house development work for his films, many renewable energy sources on the premises such as localized windmills and solar panels. "

*Snicker* Carbon credits? What a joke. Does that mean since I`ve contributed to two people being born that I can kill two others?
Kind of similar. Go ahead and wreck things. As long as you have money, you can do what you want. This is how the world works.

Fossil Fuels will run out, but energy never will. I don`t know why people are always trying to "conserve energy". It`ll be around for a long time to come. The only advantage I can see might be a lower power bill. Leaving a light bulb on isn`t going to bring on "the end of energy" any sooner than it would happen naturally..if it will.

24,000 sq. ft. or 24 times the size of my home. This is typical rich thinking, "Let them eat cake!" This should be the response in Robespierre`s voice, "Off with their heads!!!" Or, "I say we hang em`, them we stab em` and then we kill em`!"

The point isn`t JUST that he has a lot of crap, it`s that he has a lot of crap AND he`s saying people should cut down on how much crap they have.

I have no problem with people who earn a poo load of money and then spend it. I have a problem when that person tells me to live with less than I am now.

Think about our Founding Fathers, they knew slavery was a bad institution but practiced it to a great extent because most of them were wealthy plantation owners. Abolishing slavery was not fought for because it would disunite the newly formed nation (it happens 200 years later).

So would I. What I WOULDN`T do, though, is tell everybody ELSE that they have to ride bicycles and freeze in the dark for the sake of a giant hoax that is actually nothing more than a thinly veiled ploy to implement a world socialist government controlled by a bunch of arrogant elitist pricks like Cameron and Gore.

Haha I like these American jerks that criticize energy producers like the Alberta Oil Sands, which roughly imports 25% of the oil used by them, last I checked earlier this year.

James Cameron and Obama can go to hell, or maybe Canada should just turn off the tap, so to say, and sell it all to China.

Just because he owns all that stuff doesn`t mean he uses it. Furthermore, if prices go up he`ll also pay more to use it anyway. That means more of his money going to the public via sales/gas tax. C`mon people. He`s rich, get over it.

You won`t miss much if you don`t watch the film - it was terrible. People like it because of the animation (there`s no plot), but imo that`s a stupid way to gauge a film`s quality. :|

23 was a leading proposition that 12 other states were also in agreement to enact. But all the other states dropped out because it`s a bad idea in this economy.

Only california goes ahead ignoring reality.

but then, we have a history of that. Look at who`s governor.

I own a library full of books- that doesn`t mean that I read them.

If anything i would consider that a form of diversified investment.

It`s also worth noting that he rents his properties out, buys carbon credits, donates millions of dollars to indisputably good causes, uses the properties to house development work for his films, many renewable energy sources on the premises such as localized windmills and solar panels.

It`s also not unusual to think about what he owns considering that he is one of the, if not the, highest grossing director(s), ever.

And even if he is a hypocrite that doesn`t mean his ideas are bad. I know plenty of non-hypocrites with poo ideas and i`m sure there have to be hypocrites with good ideas.

Proposition 23 has little to do with gaining actual jobs. It would retard the movement towards superior mechanical efficiency and alternative fuels. James Cameron can own a Chinese sex slave for all I care- Prop 23 is still bul
