Wausau dentist Dr. Fred Prehn elected as chair of Wisconsin Natural Resources Board

Ken Notes: Congrats, I Hope we see water quality as a huge issue moving forward. I have lived on both bike trails, currently, and ATV trails in Lafayette County and would attest to the value of the biking community. We need to work on making these great assets more of a tourist destination for bikers from the Midwest. We need places to stay, things to do and destinations on the trail...

Green New Deal could create jobs, raise wages, improve environment in Wisconsin

Ken Notes: Did I mention too far... There are great jobs and opportunities by moving in a more sustainable direction. If business sees the policy and mandates as punitive and productions is moved to countries that do not have a GND vision we will fail miserably. We can`t mandate paying $15 per hour -- we can and should develop an economy that sustains a wage higher than that for any worker. If we are looking for compromises this is where they will be easy to find. The GND is a good conversation starter -- it is horrible policy...

OPINION: New DNR must stop coal pollution in Lake Michigan

Ken Notes: Stop casting blame and pointing fingers as that is how we got here in the first place. We all have been guilty of swinging too far in any direction, what we need to remember is that to get the Nelson effect we have to work together embrace both the economy and the environment. If we have policy that costs jobs we will seek change and if we have policy that ignores the environment we we also change.

With the utilities able to include affordable renewables, companies seeing real value in going green, and opportunities to clean our watersheds now is the time to work together. We need to return the scientists to the DNR and search for way to improve our use of natural resources. We need better and more jobs as well.

Evers Joining Alliance To Uphold Paris Climate Goals

Ken Notes: The Paris agreement addresses the issue as a global problem which it is, has a basic understanding of economic issues, and offers obtainable levels. So bringing this to the table is ok just remember we need to work with business and utilities to get there and again I believe this is doable. WMC should advocate for the economy not against sound environmental policy. I get nervous when a Democratic Governor and a Liberal Editorialist make more sense that the leading business lobby. I am a fiscal conservative, pro-business advocate but we have an opportunity to do some real good here!

Environment groups protest Dairyland natural gas project in Superior

Ken Notes: I am confused, this will take coal off the grid, sustain the use of solar and wind, and be built to the highest standards. I get that it is big and in Wisconsin serving Minnesota but we need to start building the systems that move us to zero emissions. Until we have storage capacity that will involve some carbon based production. Lets work to get this right!
