So-called environmentalist Representative Matt Cartwright (Democrat of Pennsylvania) argues shipping coal from Pennsylvania to Germany to power a station near a United States Air Force base is not ideal from an environmental standpoint, but “This is something that was instituted in the congressional tenure of Daniel Flood. So before you dislodge a tradition like that, you want to study it closely.” Mind you, Representative Cartwright has the strong support of the League of Conservation Voters.
Yup, another politician not taking climate change seriously. This is a failure to lead.
I found the story on NPR.
Oh yeah, by the way, don’t forget to note one coal company’s strong support for the environment. Righttttt ….
