Bloomberg: U.S. will meet Paris climate goals 22.4.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
As world leaders gather Friday in New York to sign the Paris Agreement on climate change, some have expressed concern that the U.S. Supreme Court has put the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan on hold. Their concern is understandable, but it’s important to recognize: The federal government is not the primary force in the U.S. fight against climate change, and even if the court ultimately strikes down certain parts of the plan, the U.S. will meet and probably exceed its commitment to reduce ...

Op-ed: Coal power isn't 'cheap electricity,' and its time has passed 3.4.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
I drive an electric car. I sort and recycle half a ton each year to keep my refuse out of the county landfill. Any day, a study funded by Koch Industries will find I am responsible for the ruination of the American dream. I work in civil-service which, much to the chagrin of ALEC and Grover Norquist, is ubiquitous throughout the United States. I’m a piece in the cog of big intrusive government (the bane of personal accountability and freedom). My tax rate is higher than U.S. Rep Darrell Issa, wh...
