Changes in the wind
So you think sorting out recyclables into yellow bins is a hassle, and biking to work instead of driving is a big sacrifice?
You haven’t seen anything yet.
Like it or not, our lives will change in myriad ways as humans scramble to avoid a catastrophic rise in global temperature. (do not read the emails) Nowhere is that clearer than in Portland and Multnomah County, which recently adopted one of the nation’s most aggressive and comprehensive plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that lead to global warming.
Looming lifestyle changes will affect how you heat and power your home, how you get around town, even the food you eat and the products you buy.
When I think "lifestyle change" I think about choosing to eat differently, choosing to eliminate stress, choosing to drink less (or more). But it is about choice. This is different, these will be government edicts that the subjects of Portland must follow.
Since us stupid Americans can't seem to accept central planning for our own good, our benefactors in government have come up with a new reason to establish this time tested method of running a country: save the planet.
We know the planet is dying because the scientists who get funding from the government say it is. Again, DO NOT READ THE EMAILS.
