Here's a great policy wonk update that deserves a glimpse given that it shows us the FLIMSY promises of politicos to environmentalists quickly cast aside when big money special interests express their discontent. Checkit:

Will Kansas City stick to climate pledge or bow to pressure from homebuilders?

The City Council faces a decision on an energy-saving building code update that some homebuilders oppose. As Kansas City considers updating its building energy code, city officials are weighing the city's climate commitments against concerns from homebuilders. Adopting the latest international standards without revisions likely would increase costs for homebuilders but save energy and money for homeowners.

KCMO's biggest jokes are THE streetcar, that operates on electricity made from burning coal and free buses, that spew diesel exhaust throughout the city.
And entire fleets of gasoline-powered vehicles.
Any other discussion is pretty much beside the point.

A study by the University of California San Diego has claimed that by 2050, the Sun is expected to become cool. You might think “what’s the big deal,” but remember that this means the solar activities that create the heat of the Sun to sustain life on Earth may diminish. And the last time it happened was in the 17th century when the Thames River froze. Scientists call this the “Maunder Minimum”.

Physicist Dan Lubin at the university and his team studied the past event and concluded that we are in for a worse case. The Sun is expected to get much dimmer than last time and, in scientific terms, it is a “grand minimum” — a time period in the 11-year solar cycle when the solar activities are at the lowest point.

According to the study, titled Ultraviolet Flux Decrease Under a Grand Minimum from IUE Short-wavelength Observation of Solar Analogs and published in the journal Astrophysical Journal Letters, this grand minimum will be 7 percent cooler than such periods from the past.
