Way back on April Fool’s I told you how your city-owned utility had spent more than $91,000 fighting global warming solutions in Washington.
It wasn't a joke.
At the time, mayoral candidates were outraged (overheard at one debate: “If that is true…”).
Hey, City Hall/CPS Board members! If you want the docs, all you have to do is ring my little telephone, or, better yet, ask someone at CPS dependent on you for their livelihood. Shouldn’t be that hard to get the spreadsheet.
Hey, activists! Time for a new chant.
Ya see, it gets worse. Two hours ago, CPS Energy’s legal team — the only CPS staff that still talk to me, being that the law requires it — updated those figures for me.
It appears that since my last request the utility has spent another $30,000 fighting planetary survival, bringing the grand creation-damning total to $122,000 and some change.
“If this is true” and CPS attorneys aren’t feeding me a rotten muffaletta, maybe our Council/CPS Board should, you know, put a stop to it. [I want to live; I want my friends to live; I even want Milton Lee to live.] And Rapid Climate Change is banging at our sweaty door.
So, here’s your chant: “Yes rate hikes! No nuclear!”
Time to make sure Obama’s incoming weatherization millions go to good use and the green-energy solution San Antonio creates with that $5.2 billion we DON’T spend on nuclear trends directly into the communities that will need it most.
Ack! Here come the methane plumes. They’re coming to take us away!
