If you reside in Montgomery County, the “Climate Action Plan” under consideration by the County Council, might soon make the climate for you living a free, comfortable, and prosperous life here decidedly chilly. Bitter cold, in fact.

Its founders started the organization shortly after the 2016 presidential election when they discovered two startlingly different reactions to the election from neighbors in their respective homes of rural Ohio and the Upper West Side of Manhattan. In short, the Manhattanites were having a funeral and the rural Ohioans were having a party. Are we really that different?
