On April 22, in cities across America, some environmental activists will celebrate Earth Day, claiming only increased government control can protect the environment. Those celebrations will expose a couple ironies.
"With this legislation, Washington will begin prioritizing climate efforts based on environmental effectiveness, contributing to a cleaner world and making sure taxpayers get the environmental benefits they pay for," said WPC Environmental Director Todd Myers. "This marks an important change from past policies that were little more than symbolic gestures leading Washington state to have one of the worst records of emissions reduction in the country."
