This will reduce dependence on oil, improve air quality,  increase access to vehicles with no tailpipe emissions, and slash carbon pollution from within the state.

This is a pretty good plan, which incorporates many proposals that have been agreed on by everyone from environmental groups to Exxon. And with the EPA about to be gutted, and big oil allies taking positions across the Trump administration, something like this could be a godsend for the climate movement.

"Many of the several fossil fuel fans who have joined or are likely to join the pr*sident’s cabinet and other high positions in his regime have weasel-worded their way out of their past stances dinging climate science. But the “creative solutions” they can be counted on to support—like wrecking the Environmental Protection Agency and killing limits on greenhouse gas emissions—are right in line with past Twitter ravings of their boss."

This is... not unexpected, but again it is shocking how fast the Trump administration is moving on this, and how little they care about any of the niceties and legalities. Once again, it's "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead."

"…The Bannon/Trump administration …has audaciously targeted the main pillars of a civilized nation in a way we’ve rarely seen before …the attack on climate science is, in fact, an attack on science itself, on the enterprise that undergirds modernity … Prepare for attacks as well on tradition and on common sense, since these too are bulwarks against the kind of personality cult that tempts Trump and Bannon."

This is a very big deal. And if you’re not terrified, you’re not paying attention.

“These challenges are direct attacks on America’s national parks. Each of these rules provides the commonsense protections for national parks that millions of Americans demand. If the Park Service’s drilling rules are repealed, national parks across the country would be subjected to poorly regulated oil and gas drilling, threatening parks’ air, water and wildlife. These attempts to weaken protections put our parks at risk. And by using the Congressional Review Act process, Congress is forever tying the hands of the agencies charged with protecting America’s favorite places. If Congress wants to protect national parks for future generations, it must reject these challenges.”

What tax cuts on the super rich do is they shift more wealth to a tiny number of people while sucking it away from the middle class and poor. These tax cuts take money away from the social safety net, from economic stimulus efforts, from programs to protect humanity from pollution and climate change, from programs to help families and the disadvantaged to survive (literally), from job-creation programs for veterans, and from our basic education and transportation systems (which just makes the US less competitive globally and makes our lives tougher).

Many of the loudest responses that have ensued since then have been illogical, counterproductive, and even precisely what the terrorists wanted. Many Americans may think we’re winning (or at least fighting in) some kind of moral war, while others of the same mindset think we’re losing because we aren’t fighting hard enough. As it turns out, we’re losing massively because we’ve fallen for the strategy behind the guerilla terrorism attacks and keep playing right into their traps.

Once the Trump Administration catches wind of the new solar funding program, he could move to block it.

In fact, the entire EERE office could go down, but it will go down swinging.

In another in-your-face move, the EERE home page features a timeline reminding everybody of its roots under Republican leadership during the Nixon Administration, as part of the federal response to the 1970’s oil crisis.
