Comments Off on PETITION: Tell Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker that climate censorship is not OK

Strange things are afoot in the state of Wisconsin, where a state agency has banned its employees from “working on or speaking about climate change.” Florida’s state Department of Environmental Protection tried it last month and now Wisconsin has hopped aboard the “ignore it and it will go away” train.

While the $1 billion Carlsbad Desalination Project will help secure safe drinking water for 300,000 people in southern California, opponents have cited concerns that the plant will be hugely energy hungry, harm marine life, boost water bills and may not actually be needed.
