"The comment ended months of speculation over the fate of climate legislation in New York. Democratic lawmakers, who seized complete control of state government when they took over the state Senate last fall, had been pushing a bill called the "Climate and Community Protection Act." The bill would spend 40% of the state's clean energy revenues on energy efficiency measures and renewable installations in disadvantaged communities."

nearly all social justice stuff and reversing EVERYTHING Trump has accomplished - over night .

Gotta love this one:

***Restore protections for journalists and protect the First Amendment. Senator Klobuchar will restore former Attorney General Eric Holder’s guidance on protections for journalists so that they are not jailed for doing their jobs.***

Can anyone name a single journalist in jail in the US?
No one on the right is shutting up journalists.  It is all coming from the LEFT

**The left projects more than a movie theater.

Politics & Religion / Re: Environmental issues, plastic bags continued

I guess they banned the free plastic bag in California.  I arrived in sunny southern Cal without sunglasses, stepped into a drug store, found a decent deal at $20, then noticed it was 2 for 1 if I sign up for whatever so I checked out with two, realized they were giving me two fragile pair of sunglasses that I always get scratched without a case so I asked for a bag.  You should have seen the look of the cashier.  Instead of a thin disposable bag free I had to pay $0.10 for a nice heavy duty bag.  One pair of sunglasses broke that day and one pair broke before I got home.  I'm not sure if I still have the bag.  Nice bag.

Is there something short of banning plastic bags, like just quit being so wasteful?

Bjorn Lomborg writes:

"We also need to consider the wider environmental impact of our bag choices. A 2018 study by the Danish Ministry of Environment and Food looked not just at plastic waste, but also at climate-change damage, ozone depletion, human toxicity and other indicators. It found you must reuse an organic cotton shopping bag 20,000 times before it will have less environmental damage than a plastic bag.

Does anyone look into these things before they knee jerk into legislation?

Look at California today and tell me if you can find any evidence of coherent thought behind their legislation.

Funny how this issue remains the same.  He hits a huge number of very important points.

In 1987 Alan Reynolds was invited to Harvard to a debate on Income Inequality with John Kenneth Galbraith, Lester Thurow and others.

The young Reynolds is quite witty and insightful.  Everyone except the opposing professors laugh at his clever observations.
