This might be incredibly synical, but I have to wonder if a couple
of nerds told a politician, hey, why don't you limit CO2, just
as a joke. They probably walked away laughing under their breath.

Too bad the idiots^H^H^H^H^Hpoliticials took them seriously. Wish
I had the link, but somewhere I remember reading that the department
of the CA goverment that figures out the regs was in danger of being
eliminating since the federal system was catching up. So I guess
the CO2 limits where their way to ensure their jobs^H^H^H^Hrelivance
would continue.

See, I can be a good american, less government is good, inforce the
laws we have, don't make new ones ........
