Re: “What Happened? Questions and Answers About Vermont's Primary

Two more ways to think about the governor's race: On the one hand, more women could turn out to the polls this year to vote for Hillary, thereby increasing votes for Minter... (Women don't necessarily vote for women, but heck, this is a pretty historic vote and many women will feel inspired to turn out). On the other hand, reliable Democratic voters might stay home this year because they loved Bernie and don't want to vote for Hillary, thereby handing the race to Scott... So as you say, "Who knows?!"

Re: “Environmentalist Bill McKibben Dumps Dunne for Minter

I'm torn over what to think about community sanctioning of wind power. I completely see the need to avoid NIMBY so that the greater good is served. At the same time, if communities feel steam-rolled by wind power companies, people in those communities might come to resent the idea of alternative energy and be suspicious of all renewable energy projects. Also, doesn't it strengthen climate activism if proponents of wind must make the case for wind? Activists get a chance to educate people, and people can then learn the nuances of the issue, more so than if a project were simply handed to them. And yet... it's difficult to "educate" someone out of their love of a mountain view and the belief that their property values will go down in the viewshed of a wind project. I'm glad this McKibben/Dunne exchange is showing what a tough issue this is.
