Re: “In Richmond's Blue Mayoral Race, Only Five Candidates Are Running as Democrats

Thank you for the criticism native richmonder. Given the discourse on this forum, grammar only complicates the narrative. It would seem more prudent in this ecosystem to stick with short, sharp points to make oneself clear. One would otherwise disturb the natives. Can't have that, can we?

Re: “In Richmond's Blue Mayoral Race, Only Five Candidates Are Running as Democrats

Hi Slick. Pounding the streets for Democratic presidential candidates. Vocally supporting the efforts of guys like Tim Kaine and Creigh Deeds. Loudly advocating for the good of Richmond. Putting his money where his mouth is with businesses and development, creating jobs and tax revenue. Clamoring for better support of our infrastructure, schools, and first responders. Because all Diradour wants is some votes.

Re: “Food Review: Mesopotamia Delicatessen Makes Middle Eastern Fare Worth Seeking Out

In today's digital age, there are few substitutions for smartphones or computers. I work for a digital agency, and rely on them daily. There are, however, sustainable alternatives to plastic forks and styrofoam containers. Sure, I may be a hypocrite for embracing my tech, but in my daily life try to offset that as much as possible by choosing a sustainable product when given the option.

Re: “Richmond Tech Chief Rebecca Hough: Paris Climate Deal Helps All

You are correct, Rick James, and I was wrong. So thank you for that correction. Iowa does lead the country in wind, and 27% is a nice chunk of energy. By 2020 they anticipate it generating 40% of their energy. So the argument that sustainable energy like wind, solar, etc is viable would still stand.

Re: “Richmond Tech Chief Rebecca Hough: Paris Climate Deal Helps All

Hey mj - You can call it "throwing a bone." Or maybe, like the Pentagon, they are realizing that fossil fuels are not sustainable, and there may, indeed be a link between carbon and climate. I'm not a scientist, but 97% of the ones I've read would agree with that assessment. And the market for EVs has doubled in the top 10 countries between 2013 and 2014. While not exactly dominating the vehicle market, it's also not quite a "crash." And if you want to point out "massive government intervention," look no further than the subsidies and protections offered to the fossil fuel industry. BTW: Iowa got a majority of their electric from wind last year. WIND! Freaking unbelievable!!

Hey mj - 29. Backed by BMW, Chevy, Nissan, Hertz, Duke Energy... Named an Inc 30 Under 30. All with smoke & mirrors? What is it like living your life with your head in the sand?
