    • When it comes to climate change, amid all the gloom and despair caused by the current US federal administration (in)action, there are reasons to be hopeful after all: states. If the federal government refuses to act as responsible adults and stewards of their children's future, actors on state level are stepping up. After California's landmark climate change bills, New York is also rising up to the challenge:

      Considering that California and NY together account for more than 20% of the US GDP, this will have a significant impact, both directly on emissions, but also as leading the way for other states to follow.

    • I needed that. It’s a shame that the states have to act on their own so we get 50 different policies, but I like that states such as New York and California are taking action.

      One thing that struck me, and I don’t mean this to be topic drift, is the top conservative media voices in the nation seem to make their homes in progressive enclaves — Hannity, Ingraham, O’Reilly, Limbaugh... Even Alex Jones And Glenn Beck live in Austin. I bring it up because they seem so opposed to environmental elements of the green new deal.

      Even Trump and the Koch brothers, big champions of coal, live in New York and don’t seem to have houses in coal country.
