Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

"green collar jobs"

Most of the new jobs created are just a shift in job, not an actual new job.

Good scientists are pointing to solar cycles as being more of a climate indicator. Most agree we are heading into a cooling cycle since the high of 1998, no temps have risen.
 

Princeton research (council?) just came out that ethanol may increase greehouse gas 2x! due to the change in land use, transportation, and fertilizers needed. It does not get us off of foreign oil because so much is needed to produce the corn.
