On climate and energy, major businesses go where Walker, media won't

Forty leading businesses pledge action on climate change, but in Wisconsin:

*  Walker's DNR is silent on the issue while he stymies solar, wind and energy conservation programs.

In fact, the DNR's major activity on its main climate change web page has been systematic information deletion.  Again, details, here.

* An otherwise good Journal Sentinel editorial on the climate change big picture is weakened by a parenthetical nudge for Wisconsin that offers no delineation of Walker's intentional anti-green policies.

All the facts are in a solid piece of recent reporting in the Journal Sentinel - - an article made even stronger by including the evidence of Walker's war against green, renewable energy with the details of his other attacks on clean water and related environmental issues.

*  The state's largest utility, while joining others here hoping to squash renewable energy generation through rate hikes under consideration at the Walkerite-run Public Service Commission, is also vastly expanding its coal capacity.

Wrong-Way Walker is dragging the state backwards.

The WE Energies announcement came out the day after world-wide climate change protests.
