Public Service Commissioner Roger Koopman (R-Bozeman) recently ranted another op-ed about climate change. He again decried the “socialist agenda” behind high schoolers taking part in the Climate Strike. And he cited a few (discredited) sources, encouraging readers to “nourish your brains” with … well … to use a word he used last time, “hogwash.”

To be accurate, here’s what Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-MT) said in a Lee Newspapers interview: “I read the transcript. I don’t think there’s anything there.” Apparently, Montanans elected an illiterate blind guy to the House of Representatives.

Who elected these guys?

A couple weeks ago, PSC Commissioner Roger Koopman wrote an op-ed piece. In it, he faulted Missoula and Bozeman schools for granting students a half day to take part in climate rallies.  The crisis, he said, “doesn’t exist.”  Lately, PSC Chairman Brad Johnson sent a letter to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, urging it to light a fire under a study on energy reliability. The letter was actually written by American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, a lobbying group.
