Kucinich Slams ACES

Posted by Trish Riley, June 28, 2009

I like Dennis Kucinich and often share his views. In the following Op-ed piece, he lists totally valid problems with the just-passed House ACES bill. I’m sorry that Kucinich isn’t more powerful in the House so his amendments might have been recognized. Sure hope he’s got some friends in the Senate. Thanks to Chris Bartle and Gil Friend for passing this along via FB!

Passing a weak bill today gives us weak environmental policy
tomorrow.

Particular items in the bill that concern me are Kucinich’s points $5,6,and7:  They’re giving a pass to nuclear and coal when we should be throwing all the support we can muster toward wind and solar.
