Jerry Brown: “I’m Going To Build Great Things, And I’m Not Going To Be Intimidated”
Great video of Governor Jerry Brown’s meeting with the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board, a body which has been swinging to the right lately even as California continues to undergo a long-term shift toward the left. Specifically, the clip below shows Governor Brown giving strong support to the high speed rail project, showing a vision that is too often lacking in Sacramento:

Governor Brown then appeared on ABC’s This Week show to slam Republicans for denying that climate change is real, and pointing out that California’s drought and fires are the product of a warming planet.
Surely given such a crisis, you’d think that editorial boards across the state would support any and every effort to reduce CO2 emissions, including HSR.
