Keynote Address by “Miss Piglet,” who was named a “Gross Polluter” by CARB (California Air Resources Board) for her normal bodily functions! Yes, farm animals emit methane gas, labeled by CARB as a pollutant which must be taxed!

Join “Friends for Saving California Jobs” organizers Pam Duffy and Eric Eisenhammer and 1,000+ of their closest friends to protest the California Air Resources Board (CARB) “Cap and Trade” scheme — a plan to buy and sell greenhouse gas “permits”on a commodities exchange. It’s a new multimillion-dollar tax on California businesses and families!

Participate in a spoof carbon credit auction on the same day CARB will be testing their new trading system.

Tell Governor Brown, Mary Nichols (Director of CARB) and your State Legislators, “Say NO to Cap and Trade!” because it’s ALL PAIN — NO GAIN

Ride the bus with us!! Ride up on August 14 & attend a pre-rally meeting the night before. Find details on transportation and lodging at

    The following just came out from the Coalition of Energy users:

    Our opponents are seeing that Californians are waking up to the prospect of $6 a gallon gas and millions of additional lost jobs and they are going into full scale panic mode.

    We just received word that a close partner of avowed Communist Van Jones is now hastily organizing a rally of their own the day following ours in support of cap and trade.

    The mobilization of our opponents by Van Jones allied California Environmental Justice Alliance, is a great sign our efforts are working but it also requires we step it up a notch. We need your help to make our turnout ten times greater than theirs.
