The longer I have been out of California, the more I want to stay away from California.

California, what is there to see

Its cities dumping poo into the sea
Smog as far as the eye can see

Its history recycled with fresh diveristy
People spoiling its natural privacy

Tall buildings have replaced its beauty
Driving and its parking missery

The joy of high priced electricity
No ice, low pressure showers and outdoor heating

I can tell you where to go, but I am greedy
Spend your time elsewhere, if you see the meaning

Extremist not so much your standard progressive. Progressive was a good thing, but Berkley produced a bunch of messed up people. Even Californians called Berkley, Berserkly for a reason. My issue is the sell out. Everyone wants quick money. When Ieft military bases were converted to College campus, people over populated Santa Cruz and surrounding areas. Property became gold and communities never properly adjusted for growth. Davis, California is the smartest college town, holding a California university. They mandated a zero growth township. No matter what, growth will not be too great in effecting the towns environment. UC Davis is a top Ag and Economics college. Not one Californa city along the ocean looked at sewage issues as a problem even when signs were posted in beaches for unsafe water, that were not there before such growth. To today's Californians, its the way it is. California 30 years ago had its issues, but its never going to be as good as it once was. I remember when Laguna Seca had to colourize their lake for a televised race in the 80s. It was coloured a fake blue, when seen from above it was green. That is what California is now hidding the scares with lights and tourism. You can find better elsewhere, though in some ways you will need to go to various other places to see, since California is so varied.

Give California 10 years, people will be begging to have real cars or go Hydrogen. This electric car mess is to subsidise with PG&E in markets. PG&E is a looser electric company, and is a paracite. PG&E will go belly up when Hydrogen becomes a market. California soon won't grow enough to keep farming alive. California has not enough water because of growth and waste. Once the mountains run dry on a bare winter, Its every city in for its self. There is no backup storage of water where my mom is... and she in the mountains, where they store water for northern California, and are starting some rationing along with reading meters. North of Sacramento (state capitol) wants secession to be its own state, and Republican. Sacramento is now eaten up by the machine, so that will never happen.
