In the first episode of “The Ericka Redic Show,” Ericka Redic discusses accusations of conflict of interest and white supremacy against the Vermont Climate Council.

What I suspect we’ll get is a hugely expensive program that does nothing to stop climate change, undermines our ability to adapt to it, and diverts resources away from real solutions.
Gov. Scott clearly sees that this is just one more elaborately concealed carbon tax. He knows what that will do to families and Covid-stressed businesses, he has opposed that for four years, and he won’t buy it. Good for him.
