In an otherwise reasonable summary of some proposed major changes being suggested by the NYS Public Service Commission in how electrical utilities and their grids would operate, the reporter adds this unattributed cautionary note:
“Burning natural gas in thousands of locations would make it almost impossible to capture carbon from power plants and pump it underground to avoid worsening climate change.”

Bjorn points out the Danger of Misdirection of Resources

This is what his Copenhagen Consensus project is all about .

Too bad people don’t pay attention like Lomborg does, to the Bastiat warming about unintended consequences.

Kerry, a Science Illiterate, Pushes Climate Issues

John Kerry, who served in Viet Nam, by the way, is pushing for climate change policy responses and some State generated treaty work.

Maybe they can stop storms and weather events, which now are getting names from the weather channel to make sure people get scared and stuff.

Give Me Your Children Says the Statist

Charles Battig, a physician and essayist on environmental and other policy issues, provides an excellent critique of what is going on in our schools that can’t teach kids to read and figure, but they sure can teach them the propaganda of the lefty enviros.
