Too Easy

I see a press release advertising a recent event called by Council Member Roger Berliner. More than one hundred people went to the Council Office Building to “share thoughts on protecting the environment.” Also on the agenda: “identifying best practices” for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Doesn’t the council have staff members with expertise in policy issues? Don’t they have access to libraries and the internet?

Best Practice One: Don’t get dozens of people to drive to Rockville just so to show off your green chops.

The Council Member expressed his satisfaction: “I would suggest that there is hardly a more apt illustration of the power of the bumper sticker slogan, ‘Think Globally, Act Locally.’”

Well. I would suggest there is hardly a more apt illustration of the pointlessness of making policy based on bumper stickers.

    I start to wonder if some group that supported said Councilmember is getting a grant to manage all this.
