Neenah, Wisconsin: Trade & Climate Policy

Great write-up in The New York Times today on the effects on unfair trade practices, and how spot on, at minimum from a political perspective, Trump was to zero in on trade.

In just a fantastic display of affirmation of Trump's rejection of the Paris Climate Accord, the New York Times - i.e. the leader of the "Resistance" - buried this article on China's massive projected expansion of coal generation.  This is the country global political "leaders" held up as the filler of the void left by ...
