Republicans State Senators in Oregon Flee the State to Prevent A Devastating Carbon Tax

I'm on the road today, so the following article is a reprint originally appearing at FOX News. One thing I will add, though, is that if the media tries to paint the Senators in a negative light for not doing their job, there was no such criticism from the Left when Wisconsin state senators hid in Illinois in an attempt to change collective bargaining laws in 2011. An Oregon climate change bill that prompted 12 Republican lawmakers to flee the Statehouse in Salem last week has hit yet another snag: Senate President Peter Courtney, a Democrat, announced Tuesday that the chamber did not have enough votes...

Even Magic Can’t Make Green Energy Work

This is the Center's most recent radio ad on the futility of "green" energy, i.e. wind and solar. In the current session, efforts to expand Minnesota's renewable energy electricity mandate, first to 50%, then to 100%, were defeated on a bipartisan basis in the state Senate. But the battle will be joined again when the legislature convenes next year.

In the first real segment of the show, Jim talks about The Heartland Institute's upcoming 13th International Conference on Climate Change.
