TSW #10

As you’ve probably heard by now, the Minnesota House voted yesterday to approve a bill that would weaken the state’s renewable energy law.

The bill, SF 86, which as amended would allow for some coal power to be imported from out of state, ultimately passed. But only after nearly three hours of debate that, to no one’s surprise, wandered down the ol’ rabbit hole a few times…

… Rep. Peggy Scott said that while coal emissions may cause asthma attacks, so can cat dander, therefore if the PUC is going to study coal plants, it should also study cats.
