The DOE, staying faithful to Trumpian absurdity, has floated a proposal to force utilities to purchase the electricity produced by coal and nuclear plants. The anti-free-market nature of such a move is obvious. Coupled with its corrupt benefits to a limited number of politically connected corporations, it is an assault on our democracy. Somewhere, Joe Stalin is raising a glass of vodka.
The reading list:
- Bloomberg on DOE plan
- NYT on the DOE proposal
- GreenTech Media on legal aspects of the DOE
- NYT on Swampy Scott's Chick-fil-a adventure
Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist that the United States put a price on carbon.
Thanks for listening.
