Net Zero Emissions
Note Massachusetts has a “net zero” plan in mind. 2050. So do lots of companies, municipalities, and countries. Let’s hope they act like it means something. That’s Climate Adam in the above, by the way. Support him.

ClimateAdam opines upon 45
Applause! Let it be said, apart from his so-called base, 45 is not a popular guy. Even his bud, Boris Johnson, is making moves to avoid his endorsement. Yeah, that’s a popular, well respected guy. Isn’t he?
