Despite the heat from the media on the new developments in the email scandal, Hillary Clinton pressed ahead a new plan to combat global warming.
At a campaign event in Iowa over the weekend, Hillary declared support for expansion of solar panels and the goal of exclusive renewable energy use by homes and businesses by 2027.
She stopped short, however, of outright advocacy of the sort of tough regulations on carbon emissions which have conservative Democrats — particularly in coal mining swing states — up in arms.
The plan also was conspicuously mum on the Keystone Pipeline, an issue which Hillary has managed to avoid since her time at the State Department.
While the mainstream media surely will try to let her change the subject and ignore both elephants in the room, it does give the Republican presidential candidates more to hit her on.
