Did anyone catch this on Red County/OC Blog? Apparently, our Governator has decided to support extending the 241 Toll Road to Trestles. So why is he doing it? He thinks it’s the “eco-friendly” thing to do.
I have concluded that this project is essential to protect our environment and the quality of life for everyone in Southern California. I am convinced that, with the extensive mitigation and avoidance measures propsoed by the TCA, the project can be built in a manner that will enhance and foster use of the coast and protect coastal resources. I therefore urge the Coastal Commission to concur in the TCA’s certification that the project is consistent with the California Coastal Zone Management Program.
Really??!! So the best way to “protect our environment” is to destroy the environment of San Onofre? Has Arnold completely lost it? Does he really think the best way to “protect our environment” is to destroy one of our last stretches of protected coastline, literally paving the way for more worsening of our climate crisis (think more road for more cars) and more unwise development?
If Arnold thinks this Toll Road to Trestles is the “green” thing to do, then he really doesn’t know what “going green” means. Think more and better transit options to give people real alternatives to cars. Think smarter development that destroys less wilderness and encourages less pollution and more community. If Arnold really wants to call himself an “environmentalist”, he needs to act more like one.
