Thought Piece

Thanks to Chris Horner and Competitive Enterprise Institute, we can now read the “informal” communications between 18 State Attorneys General (led by Eric Schneiderman), climate change NGO’s (led by Union of Concerned Scientists), universities (led by NYU) and wealthy individuals (led by Michael Bloomberg). The level of extra legal activities between these groups in support of AGs United for Clean Power is carefully documented by Horner’s Report. No wonder the involved parties fought so hard to keep these communication from public eyes, they are that explosive. In fact, I will be surprised if some state offices and their staffs avoid being prosecuted.

My major complaint against (now former) Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has always been that he used extra-legal (at best) bullying tactics, not unlike former AG and disgraced Governor Elliot Spitzer. Schneiderman’s leadership of AG’s United for Clean Power was more of the same.

P.S. I have several complaints against Mr. Schneiderman: He has been ruthlessly political, overly arrogant, imperially ambitious, utterly shameless, and essentially lawless.

    Hey! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog such
    as yours require a lot of work? I am brand new to blogging however I do write in my journal
    on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience
    and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any
    suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.

      I have been a business writer since 1999, so I have much experience. Anyway, a topical and in-depth news blog like mine requires some real rigor and a writing style that is accessible to my readership. In the last 4 years, I have systematically added over 21,000 Connections to my LinkedIn Web Site. They have supported my extensive research and reasoned point of view.

      In sum, the above-methodology is my secret sauce. Steve

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a superb job with this.
    Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer.

    Excellent Blog!
