Critics Say Trump Coal Rules Step Backward for Wisconsin

Ken Notes: We need to eliminate the drastic back and forth swings in energy policy and create bipartisan or better yet non political environmental standards that improve air quality, are sustainable, and do not penalize businesses and producers.

Public warned to stay out of Silver and Duck Creek on Oneida reservation due to `acute` manure spill

Ken Notes: This was not a CAFO, but I fear the day when one fails. I also notice that when yo are pumping over a mile from the farms there is a lot that can go wrong. We need to work with farmers and companies to exponentially improve the safety of these operations.

What Can A Climate Summit Accomplish?

Ken Notes: A friend and mentor once suggested to me that if you really want to facilitate change seek a seek at the table. Also note that politicians can count so if you want to start a movement you need the numbers firmly on your side. So my advice run for office and support common sense legislation that is not punitive but rather proactive in nature.
