  1. An Adirondack Resident says

    Anyone who continues to deny that the climate in the Adirondacks has changed over the last 50 years has an agenda not based in reality.

    However, it t does not make any sense to cripple the local economy, or the US economy with extreme ‘climate emergency’ measures when no matter what happens in the US alone it will not be enough to mitigate the world-wide climate change, and when the US has been a leader in reducing pollution and addressing climate change issues. Some other countries have made similar strides, others have not.

    But if the US does not maintain a strong economy the US will no longer be a world leader and will be less able to influence anyone else when it come to climate measures.

    The wholesale banning of fossil fuels when the alternatives are not yet ready is a mistake. If you want to make everything electric, the only way to get huge amounts of reliable power is nuclear. And the only way to get it to people is by building and upgrading power lines and that includes in the Adirondacks.
