Kwanzaa Break

I'm going to slip on my winter Crocs, bust out the kinara, and prepare for a joyous Kwanzaa. Because my Kwanzaa preparation ritual is extremely rigorous, don't expect any blogging until after I've fully celebrated the seven principles.

Of course, if something interesting happens, I'll be back to comment.


Enjoy your holiday----much!

I'll consider it, but it will have to be a hell of a cake to replace my current holiday tradition -- heavy drinking.

did you see that article about how Massa responded to a car accident in the S. Tier? Crazy

Hope the Kwanzaa is going well

This comes with continued good wishes for Kwanzaa and the entire season. The article about Massa doubling as an EMT at that accident is worth a read. His detractors, of course, will lampoonhim as a publicity-seeker but I find it quite impressive and not all that surprising. Happy Holidays to all readers of this important, valuable blog!

Ken raises an important issue about how emission reductions by states and individuals interact with the pollution cap in the House climate bill. The short answer is yes, we are working with the Senate to try to improve the ability of states to drive additional net reductions and we are working to increase the incentives that would flow to individuals sexy lingerieto make energy efficiency improvements. Of course not every reduction that a state or an individual achieves can count as an extra reduction that tightens the cap--some have to be used to achieve the cap as written--so this is a bit tricky. Once a cap is in place one option that is always open is to simply buy and retire allowances. wholesale lingerieThese allowance retirements could be bundled with energy efficiency or renewable power offers so that motivated consumers know that they are not only lowering their own emissions, but also lowering overall emissions as well.
