    Gina is at the tipping point on this. She either has to go forward and walk the talk and bring RI in line with other states, or fall back into the trap of thinking this foolish “bridge fuel” argument still holds sway. If she refuses to let go of the now discredited “bridge fuel” argument, which is really a front for a pact she has made with the building trades to provide temporary jobs, then she is choosing that pact over the critical need for a sustainable, green, energy future for Rhode Island and the whole region.

    One choice is the whole cliched old school Rhode Island closed door exclusionary method of running a state, and the other is the progressive wave of the future, in step with how the world is awakening to climate justice.

    Let’s see how she decides to gamble her political future while weighing a gamble for the future well-being of all the people, sentient life forms, beautiful landscapes and farm lands, pristine lakes, Atlantic ocean, air quality, safety of aquifers and availability of potable water. Seven Generations, Gina. Put your sight right there. You have a responsibility to protect future generations.
