From a friend, "What if Hillary had won …", an alternate history.
"Hillary Clinton is not only the nation’s first woman president, she
also has claim to be its most environmentally conscious. Not only did
she make a massive investment in the sustainable, earth-friendly
technologies of wind and solar power, but she also slapped a 300 percent
tax on the mining or sale of coal within the United States and had her
technology experts draw up plans for the total elimination of fossil
fuels by the year 2024. Under the direction of Michael Mann, the
Environmental Protection Agency put the battle against man-made climate
change at the top of its agenda and, with its budget doubled, will be
able to prosecute climate deniers for furthering an anti-science agenda
that put not only our children, but also the entire planet at risk."
So if Hillary had won, I would be going to jail now. Lovely.
