This week's Fool-on-the-Hill is back for yet another stint. Yes, it's Congressman Lamar Smith, repugnican from Texas (of course!) who penned an editorial in some random rightwing rag titled:
Are you ready for His Malignancy The Mad King? Fear not, Earthlings: The emperor has no clothes (Eeeuuu! Sorry.) There. We said it. And his new....er....now former mouthpiece, Anthony Scaramucci sure had changed his wardrobe since ascending to the throne. This guy came straight out of Central Casting ready to sell you the worst used beater ever. Tony gives new meaning to the term "fake news". So long, Mooch! Another lawsuit for His Malignancy and his court of fools: this time it's the group Food and Water challenging his secret advisors plan to sell off our infrastructure. Like the bumper sticker says: "The Road to hell is Paved with Republicans". Wait, there actually is some pushback from both parties on The Mad King's proposed budget cuts for the Environmental Protection Agency. Sooooo, instead of eviscerating the EPA they're just going to torture it.
In The Enviro Show Echo Chamber we come upon a piece in New York Magazine that could impress even the classic unmovable New Yorker. So, steel your nerves for "The Uninhabitable Earth". BTW: Grist has an update on the lawsuit(s) those feisty kids at Our Children's Trust initiated. Now there's a court challenge in all 50 states! Here in the Commonwealth they've already claimed a victory. Speaking of good news, the Brits will ban gas and diesel vehicles after 2040. We can hardly wait to see that. Finally, here's our Enviro Show Blog Action Bonus. Rise your voice: Save the pollinators!
Time for some E-Valley-uation and an excellent column by Katy Eiseman in the Daily Hampshire Gazette that may still have ears burning over at Berk Gas. This is a must see for anyone concerned about Kinder Morgan/TGP's assault upon the Commonwealth and their "open season" on our communities. And regarding KM/TGP's assault on our public lands in Otis State Forest, a recent Sugar Shack Alliance action appears to have been yet another demonstration of resolve. Onward!

That's it for this week. Remember to listen to your Mother, OK?
