Re “‘We’re embarrassed’ by Trump’s climate hoax remark, Jerry Brown tells Chinese” (sacbee.com, Nov. 14): We will be wiped out by California’s taxes long before we are wiped out by climate change. After a lifetime and generations of our family living in California, I have told my grandchildren and great grandchildren it's time to move to another state where fiscal sanity still exists and you will be able to keep some of your hard earned money. The high-speed rail boondoggle should be just about rounding completion when the unbearable heat is suppose to hit the valley, so you will be able to escape the heat by riding the air-conditioned choo choo. By then, the cost of building and operating this train system will be well over $100 billion dollars, all but a few billion paid by you, the taxpayer.
