San Diego sewage waiver casts pall over efforts to restore Ocean San Diego is the last remaining large sewage waiver, allowing dumping of poorly treated sewage into the Ocean. This contradicts and vitiates ongoing efforts to create marine protected areas, to lower human impact on the Ocean, and to restore fisheries and wetlands. Sewage is not good for the Ocean. Inland dischargers follow at least secondary treatment standards; San Diego dumps into the Ocean, out of sight out of mind.

Resume production of EVs now that Chevron sold control of the batteries Now that Chevron disgorged control of the Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH)battery needed for plug-in Electric cars, it's time to force auto makers to resume production of proven EVs such as the Toyota RAV4-EV, still running fine almost 7 years after Chevron forced Toyota to stop production.

Only protective tariffs can bring back real jobs and wealth Restore protective fees on unfair foreign manufacturing, a sort of "misery tax" that recoups the money saved by oppressing foreign workers.

Big Oil suborns regulators, killing other industries and our health Electric cars and solar power are here, now, and can solve our economic and pollution problems. But regulators instead bow to Big Oil, instead venting their wrath on small industries that can't afford to defend themselves with lobbyists and contributions.

Taxpayer money to GMAC finances past failures Giving money to GMAC, unlike giving money to banks, finances past GM mistakes and bad loans collateralized only by unsaleable gas-guzzlers. Taking GMAC off of GM's books puts it onto the taxpayer, and lets GM off the hook. GMAC should not be given any money unless GM agrees to resume production and agrees to sell plug-in all-electric cars to the general public.
