Opinion: This year not the time to pass Global Warming Solutions Act - Fractals of Change

The pandemic this year has straddled Vermont and is pummeling us with both hands. Our Legislature must subdue the pandemic, get our economy up and running, and educate our kids. All else is an expensive, negligent distraction.

“Carbon emissions have fallen way below the most optimistic forecasts of the UN and others as factories shut and people stopped driving. Some of these reductions may be permanent as many of us have learned to work and hold meetings without driving. Some reductions may be long lasting for harmful reasons; many businesses may not reopen. We simply don’t know yet. Renewables have become a greater part of our energy mix faster than anyone thought possible as fossil fuel use declines. It’s not clear how well our electric grid will be able to handle this high a percentage of wind and solar."
