Climate change crusader Jerry Brown’s hopes of becoming an oil baron dashed

Note: The Jerry Brown hypocrisy in the story below is Al Gore approved!

While California Gov. Jerry Brown continues to support the pouring of billions of taxpayer dollars down train-to-nowhere money pits in the name of saving the planet from “climate change,” he’s also been trying to promote additional “green jobs.” Some of those “green jobs” were state workers tasked with trying to figure out how to make Brown some green from oil on his land:

Gov. Jerry Brown last year directed state oil and gas regulators to research, map and report back on any mining and oil drilling potential and history at the Brown family’s private land in Northern California.

After a phone call from the governor and follow-up requests from his aides, senior staffers in the state’s oil and gas regulatory agency over at least two days produced a 51-page historical report and geological assessment, plus a personalized satellite-imaged geological and oil and gas drilling map for the area around Brown’s family ranchland near the town of Williams.
Through the state’s open records law, The Associated Press obtained the research that state regulators carried out for Brown, and the emails among senior oil and gas regulators scrambling to fulfill the governor’s request.
Petroleum-industry professionals contacted by the AP said they never heard of regulators carrying out and compiling that kind of research, analysis and mapping for private individuals.

Sadly for Brown, his attempt to become a finalist for Eco-Hypocrite of the Year were dashed:

Ultimately, the regulators told the governor, prospects were “very low” for any commercial drilling or mining at the 2,700-acre property, which has been in Brown’s family for more than a century.

And he was so looking forward to drinking your milkshake.

You’ll reimburse taxpayers for all the money spent on state resources to evaluate your private property, right Gov. Brown?
