Dear Chairman Lisa Murkowski,
.
On November 10 and 11, 2018, I sent three emails, vowing to myself THIS IS IT, THIS IS MY FINAL REQUEST …
.
But one thing has happened since then that DEMANDS ONE MORE FINAL ATTEMPT
.
I googled ‘Lisa Murkowski "Green New Deal"' just to see what there might be out there.
.
Two articles came up, but pathetically, neither associates you with "Green New Deal":

Senate braces for 'Green New Deal' fervor

“Senate Energy and Natural Resources Chairwoman Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), who has long expressed
concern about the climate change impacts she sees firsthand in her state, said she welcomes the debate.
.
"It's something that I expect to deal with — in fairness, I actually want to," Murkowski told E&E News. "I think that
we can be a committee that hopefully can lead a rational conversation on it rather than seeing the extremes on
both sides or just kind of the rhetoric."
.
“Murkowski, who once backed a bipartisan cap-and-trade bill floated by Senate moderates attempting to steer the
climate debate toward middle ground, said she hasn't fleshed out a committee agenda for next year yet. She now
opposes regulations for limiting carbon emissions, favoring instead innovation and technology as a solution.
.
"I'd like to try and lead on some of those issues as a committee, but right now we haven't filled out that policy
goals list yet," she said.

Carbon bill makes first footprint

“MURKOWSKI PAYING ATTENTION TO CLIMATE REPORT: The Trump administration and top Republicans
may be dismissing the latest climate change report, but Senate Energy Chairman Lisa Murkowski isn't. "When
your state gets a whole chapter, by gosh we're going to pay attention to it," she told ME. "We're not going to just
say nice platitudes. We're going to be talking about the things that need to be reviewed, need to have an action
plan, need to be developed out and discussed." Murkowski said Alaska is already seeing impacts to food security,
health and infrastructure from climate change and vowed to study possible federal solutions. "There is no one
federal response," she said. "This is multi-faceted."

“Hope springs eternal: Murkowski highlighted her long-stalled energy bill, S. 1460 (115), as an example of
legislation she could work on with the Democrat-controlled House next year. "Why wouldn't we be able to revive
anew our energy bill?" she asked ME. "I think we've got lots of room to be working cooperatively." Remember an
earlier iteration of that bill [pathetic deceptive S.2012] cleared the Senate by a wide 85-12 margin in 2016.

America and the entire global community are counting on you to act responsibly. Draft a W.E.C.A.R.E. bill.
You took an oath to PROTECT AND DEFEND … NOW DO IT … Kill S.1460! … Start from scratch, square 1.

Happy Holidaze &
Hopeful New Year!
