The state is giving away to the Central Jersey Rifle Club that they have already polluted in exchange for a less valuable property.

WEEKLY WASTEBASKET: EARTH DAY Posting Positive Possibilities on

In our last Wastebasket, we delved into how past U.S. policy missteps have failed to achieve climate results – while wasting taxpayer dollars to boot. Ever the budget (and policy) optimists, this week we turn to positing positive possibilities. In preparation for President Biden’s 40-nation Climate Summit beginning today, we have five recommendations on how Washington can steer climate policy in the right direction. Because climate change is real, it’s costly, and it’s solvable. For upcoming budget, infrastructure, climate, and other discussions to achieve real, long-term results, taxpayers must be in the driver’s seat. But first, we should give this Congress and the president two thumbs up. From day one, they’ve acknowledged that a... Read more →
