CA Assemblyman Goes Off on CARB Chairwoman Mary Nichols’ Stupid Insensitive Tweet
‘How dare you talk about Enviro racism when your policies favor your coastal elitists friends’

‘@MaryNicholsCA How dare you take this moment of pain and anguish our nation is facing to discus your crooked Enviro policies.’
California Assemblyman Jim Cooper (D-Elk Grove) went off on California Air Resources Board Chairwoman Mary Nichols Monday night after she posted an unbelievably self-serving and stupid Tweet:
“‘I can’t breathe’ speaks to police violence, but it also applies to the struggle for clean air. Environmental racism is just one form of racism. It’s all toxic. Government needs to clean it up in word and deed. We who do climate and environmental…”
And then her Tweet was deleted.
Assemblyman Cooper called out Nichols for her insensitivity and corruption with these Twitter responses:
“@MaryNicholsCA How dare you take this moment of pain and anguish our nation is facing to discus your crooked Enviro policies.”
“For example: Rudy Salas district received an abysmal 325 rebates totaling $750k over a 9 year period. While 39,000 rebates totaling $79 million over the same period went to 3 wealthy Bay Area districts. Let’s talk about environmental racism.”
“Now that you’ve disrespected the thousands of people peacefully protesting and not to mention the family of Mr. Floyd. Do you have any other insights to provide about racism from a wealthy white woman’s prospective?”

How dare you use a dying man’s plea for help as a way to discuss your agenda. Have you no shame?
How dare you talk about Enviro racism when historically your policies favor your coastal elitists friends. While leaving communities of color out and left to foot the bill.

It is gratifying to finally see someone in the California Legislature call Mary Nichols out for her history of corruption, graft and bureaucratic corruption.
Last October, California Globe reported on civil the complaint filed by the Department of Justice against the state of California, several of its officers including Mary Nichols, the California Air Resources Board, and the Western Climate Initiative Inc., for unlawfully entering a cap and trade agreement with the Canadian Province of Quebec.” Specifically, the complaint is about California’s Cap and Trade manipulations and the illegal Delaware corporation WCI Inc. created by Mary Nichols.

Good for Jim Cooper. That ought to shut Mary Nichols up — for awhile, anyway.
But shutting her up behind bars for what she has done to this state would be more helpful.
Well said Show and Tell.
I agree with Asm. Jim Cooper. It is disgusting to take a dying man’s words and use it for her agenda. It should also apply to Hollywood elites such as Jane Fonda, Chrissy Tiegen, young tone deaf Olivia Jade, etc…
I would hope politicians of all stripes would be constructive and aid in healing this country! Instead most will try to profit from tragedy.
California Air Resources Board Chairwoman Mary Nichols, is a careless airhead. Thank goodness Assemblyman Jim Cooper called her out on her polluted comment.
Poor Katy Grimes. Still can’t get a job as an actual journalist. I hate Nichols and thinks she has overreached repeatedly but it’s sickening to see a piece of filth, a PPL (Paid Professional Liar), a dirty cunservative like Grime acting like she’s gives a s*** about black people or the environment. Grime is a nobody, a loser, a propaganda machine for the old inbreds who hate that the world isn’t theirs any longer, that they can no longer sit around on their fat behinds demanding the rest of the world cater to them. Grime is their hero because she’s unaccomplished and bitter.
