Faith on the Front Lines of Climate Protection

the idea that a few thousand jobs is worth permanently destroying the climate on the only earth we’ve ever lived on doesn’t make any sense.
I make great use of a book called Climate for Change by Katharine Hayhoe, who is an IPCC Scientist at Texas Tech University in Lubbock and is married to an evangelical pastor.

Boiled down, the leadership of James Rogers has been an ethical, mismanaged and crony capitalistic disaster. His pursuit of financial (tax breaks, incentives, grants) government favoritism, in the name of going “Green,” inflicted considerable harm upon his customers (especially the poorest ones) because of increased costs. That approach led him down the path to Edwardsport, the most expensive plant ever built in the U.S. and a huge liability that he desperately wants paid for. Profits declined 30 percent in the third quarter due to reduced power sales and costs from Edwardsport. And he has poured big dollars into Democrat leadership coffers, and advocated for their causes such as action on climate change, which also drives up electricity costs.

Can the company continue with his bungling any longer?
