In other news, some members of Congress are reportedly considering a one to two-year extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program if current talks fail. They will almost certainly fail.

Meanwhile, Republicans in Nebraska want to remove wind from the list of "renewable" energy sources approved by the state because... it "hurts people" and "isn’t ‘green’ energy by any definition of the term.”

I just can't.

Finally, 10 states led by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman have filed lawsuit against the EPA for delaying the Obama-era Clean Water Rule for 2 years, effectively killing it.

"The Trump Administration’s suspension of the Clean Water Rule is clearly illegal, threatening New York’s decades-long efforts to ensure our residents have access to safe, healthy water," New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who is leading the coalition, said after filing suit Tuesday in Manhattan federal court.

The agencies allegedly acted without considering scientific evidence developed in support of the rule. The EPA, led by longtime agency critic Scott Pruitt, has often questioned scientific consensus on environmental matters, including the human causes of climate change.

I'm signing off a little early today because my head feels like a bowling ball and I can't focus. Have a good night.

    Oh, FFS.

    How does wind power hurt people? And how can one of the least polluting electrical sources be anything but green?

      I suppose they’re complaining about tornadoes, but I’d have thought that complaint would’ve come from Oklahoma…

      • muselet

        So they think wind power generates wind?

        Sounds right.

          No, I don’t think they made that connection at all. The quote said
          “wind” and I think they stopped reading before they got to “power”.
          ‘Cause, you know, why clutter up things with facts?
