"I May Be a Republican. I'm Not an Idiot." | Mother Jones
Lancaster, California is the state's 30th largest city, with a population of more than 150,000. Its Republican mayor, class-action attorney and alleged "unstoppable control freak" R. Rex Parris, has big plans for solar and clean energy. Lancaster requires virtually all new homes to either install solar panels or be built in subdivisions that generate a kilowatt of solar energy per house. The mandate is the first of its kind in the United States.
When asked by New York Times reporter Felicity Barringer if he views global warming as an imminent threat, Parris replied "absolutely." He continued: "I may be a Republican. I'm not an idiot."
...In a ClimateWire story published last month, he is quoted as describing climate change as the biggest threat to the planet: "There isn't any greater crisis facing the world today. We're going to see the displacement of millions and millions of people. Whether we can survive the wars that that's going to cause is an open question."
Since he does life in the granola state you can sort of understand how he became such a moron.
That article starts out saying:
"Lancaster, California is the state's 30th largest city, with a population of more than 150,000. Its Republican mayor, class-action attorney and alleged "unstoppable control freak" "
One of the traits of democrats is that they are "control freaks." If this mayor is a "control freak" then he most likely is a democrat posing as a republican.
He's working some scam to cash in on Federal/State global warming bucks. This is PR to that end.
Anyone who lives in Lancaster is a bit off anyway. It is an armpit.
