It's probably a good idea if these lawmakers could read and/or understand the US Constitution and its interpretation by the SCOTUS, as they relate to local or state nullification of Federal law...
More big government from the Retrogressive Right...
@mbrock Dude this is a factual report, not an editorial.
@John Droz "As a physicist I happen to have a scientific understanding of all the issues she cites. In each case she has not presented an objective case"
As a physicist, or whatever else you think you are, you happen to have a complete misunderstanding of the geological processes by which fossil fuels are formed. I wonder if you accept the Swiss Cheese Hypothesis with regard to the moon...
@Humpy "There is no scientifically valid debate about climate change. Period.... Really? You don't honestly think that? That one comment invalidated your entire article."
Would it make you feel any better if one said "practically no" or "infinitessimal" scientifically valid debate, as opposed to "no" scientifically valid debate? To quote Hilary R Clinton "What is the difference?"
Not sure what the issue is here- you either are or are not legally entitled to be here, and if you are not you deserve to be deported. Personally, I would like to see as many illegals removed as possible, as they are taking jobs away from the rest of us, and lowering wages and worsening working condtions.
How's this for circular logic- (a) people of color are more likely to live by *unlined* landfills and thus be exposed to recognized and suspected human carcinogens, and (b) people of color generally have elevated rates of the cancers, so obviously (c) the elevated cancer rates observed in the community of color living next to the landfill are caused by some inherent racial factor [not the landfill] and "further investigation, including community surveys, *is unwarranted*" by the county. Really?
