Why did E2SSB 5735 Die in the Washington Senate?
As you can imagine, the death of the Climate bill in the Senate inspired spirited conversations at many dinner tables. As my daughter puts it succinctly, maybe we did not challenge the senators enough to ‘force’ them to tell us why they did not put the E2SSB to vote. My position though is that many an issue begs solution. However, when we deliberately ignore an issue as big as environmental pollution for any reason or sake, we have actually done an injustice to the problem. No one likes to be ignored, especially when it comes to carbon dioxide or monoxide poisoning!
