The Green Guillotine

Patrick Bobko, If you’ve ever wondered what happens when Berkeley-grade environmentalists finally seize control of all the levers of government power, let me introduce you to my town of Hermosa Beach, California.

Trump administration revokes Obama-era directive blocking controversial water project
