July 8, 2020 by

0

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The U.S. House “Selects Committee on the Climate Crisis” is a symbolic committee, not a real one. It cannot draft and introduce legislation, which is what House Committees do. It is more of a study group and as such it has produced a study. Well sort of. The document in […]

By Peter Murphy ~ Presidential candidate Sen.
