Two DFL Legislators Hit Reverse on Opposition to California Car Mandates

On Tuesday I wrote about how 123 candidates for office in Minnesota have signed a pledge to oppose the Walz administration's attempt to impose California car mandates on Minnesota. One encouraging aspect of the pledge was the fact that both Republicans and DFLers had signed it. Unfortunately, two DFL legislators have hit reverse on their opposition to the new regulations. According to MinnPost: "Two Democratic state lawmakers who signed a pledge opposing tougher vehicle emission standards proposed by Gov. Tim Walz now say they support the regulations. State Rep. Mary Kunesh-Podein, DFL-New Brighton, and state Sen. Ann Rest, DFL-New Hope, asked to be...

123 Legislative Candidates Sign Pledge Opposing California Car Mandates

A MinnPost article published yesterday shows 123 legislative candidates, including Republicans and Democrats, oppose Governor Walz's attempt to impose California car mandates on Minnesotans. The pledge shows there is strong, bipartisan opposition to the regulations from legislative candidates and citizens alike. More than 5,000 Minnesotans have already signed American Experiment's petition telling Governor Walz not to adopt the regulations. You can add your name to this growing list by going to www.NoCaCars.com....

Xcel’s Electric Vehicle Scheme Will Give Wealthy Liberals More of Your Money

Last weekend, the Minneapolis Star Tribune wrote an article about Xcel Energy's plans to increase the number of electric vehicles (EVs) on the road by giving rebates of up to $2,500 to people who purchase EVs. These rebates, which would most likely be paid to wealthy urban liberals, would be paid for using your money. Xcel Energy is NOT a Private Company It's always important to remember that Xcel isn't really a private business, they are a government approved monopoly. As an Xcel customer, you have no freedom to choose another provider if you want to shop around for a better deal....

Statewide View: California Car Mandates Not Right for Minnesota

The following article originally appeared in the Duluth News Tribune. Statewide View: California Car Mandates Not Right for Minnesota Isaac Orr This week, the Center of the American Experiment crisscrossed the state of Minnesota to help educate residents about the Walz administration’s attempt to impose California’s car mandates on Minnesotans. These California car regulations would increase the cost of driving for Minnesotans up to $2,500 per vehicle while having zero measurable environmental benefits. The regulations would be all pain and no gain. They would put California — specifically the unelected bureaucrats on the California Air Resources Board, or CARB — in charge of deciding...

Walz Delays Line 3 Again, Proving Modern “Environmentalism” Has Little To Do With The Environment

Today, the Walz administration plans to file an appeal that will again delay the replacement of the aging Enbridge Line 3 oil pipeline. This project would provide thousands of good paying, union jobs and make the environment safer for future generations by reducing the risk of an oil spill in Minnesota. Unfortunately, modern "environmentalism" has little to do with improving the environment. Not About the Environment or "The Science" The most important thing to know about Walz's decision to delay the project is that it has nothing to do with the potential environmental impacts of the pipeline. In fact, the Minnesota Public...

Walz Wants Electric Vehicles to Be 20 Percent of All Vehicles on the Road By 2030

The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDOT) has recently released its 2019 Sustainability Report, which sheds light on the Walz Administration's desire to radically change the way Minnesotans drive. According to the report, the Walz administration wants 20 percent of the vehicles registered in Minnesota to be electric vehicles (EVs) even though these vehicles are more expensive and less useful than traditional cars, especially during cold Minnesota winters. The Walz Administration's EV goals are laughably unrealistic. EVs currently constitute 0.25 percent of the registered vehicles in Minnesota, which amounts to 12,750 out of the more than 5.1 million cars registered in the...

Debunking the Minnesota “Conservative” Energy Forum’s “Cleaner and Cheaper” Talking Points: How Clean Are Renewables, Really?

Last week we discussed why the Minnesota "Conservative" Energy Forum's (MNCEF) claim that wind and solar are "cleaner and cheaper" than traditional energy resources like coal, natural gas, and nuclear power is a fraudulent talking point from an economic perspective. Today, we'll examine why wind and solar aren't the environmentally consequence-free energy sources they're often touted as, and discuss better ways to take care of Minnesota's environment for future generations. This article is the third in a series explaining how the Minnesota Conservative Energy Forum is intentionally misleading Minnesota conservatives on energy issues. Everything Has An Impact on the Environment, Even Wind...
