It’s fitting that the solstice comes just after we got word that Manchin’s dirty deal has been defeated a fourth (and we hope, final) time this year!

What's in Manchin's IRA

Why I’m suspicious of the Machin-Schumer compromise, and what we do about it

There’s been a lot of hot takes, premature celebration, and doomerism since the Manchin-Schumer compromise deal on a big budget reconciliation bill was announced, which Manchin wants to call the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (🤮 ).

Tell FERC not to back down on Climate and Environmental Justice!

Stop FERC’s cowardly Betrayal of climate and environmental justice
