Bowser demands 14 day "self-quarantine" of travellers/returnees from high virus areas

On the 24th of July, DC Mayor Bowser issued an order demanding that anyone entering or returning to DC from high coronavirus areas such as Florida "self-quarantine" for 14 days. There is no enforcement measure included other than business being allowed to deny service to those who do not comply, and the potential to invoke the Communicable and Preventable Diseases Act. Thus MPD does not appear to be empowered to make arrests for violation of this. It is Possible that Trump knew this was coming and that this is the reason the Jacksonville, FL RNC events have been cancelled.

Extinction Rebellion protests COG climate report w noisy car protest in Rockville

On the 21st of July, Extinction Rebellion Mont County held a rally and noisy car protest at the County Executive Building in Rockville, MD. They were protesting a excuse-riddled COG climate reportS on greenhouse gases. The report claims downward trends in CO2 emissions since 2005 but leaves out the role of the Great Recession in suppressing demand for fossil fuels. If the report included the pandemic error it would claim even more reductions. This makes those reductions strictly temporary and of little meaning.
