YES... we have lost this OCCASION to stop an extension of the PTC. !!!
NO ....WE ARE NOT DONE FIGHTING!!!!
While the Senate and the House caved in to the wind industry, the drama of our country's debt misery IS NOT GOING WAY
AND MONEY IS NEEDED EVERYWHERE IN THIS COUNTRY, LEAST OF ALL FOR A DESTRUCTIVE AND COWARDLY INDUSTRY LIKE THE WIND INDUSTRY !
Friday morning the House will vote on an emergency spending bill to fund Hurricane Sandy victims......where will the money come from? WE CAN GIVE THE HOUSE MEMBERS A MORAL, ETHICAL AND FAIR SUGGESTION:
On Friday morning please call YOUR Representatives, and US House leadership with this message:
' We understand that the bill on Friday for 'emergency spending' to fund Hurricane Sandy relief efforts has to come up with at least $9+ billion in PAY FOR. A good place to start is the wind energy industry subsidies, production tax credits (PTC) included in the Fiscal Cliff bill." WE URGE YOU TO REDIRECT THE WIND PTC MONEY FOR PEOPLE WHO REALLY NEED IT ,GE, SIEMENS,IBERDROLA,FIRST WIND AND VESTA WILL DO FINE WITHOUT IT (end of message).
We have an window of opportunity to YANK THE MONEY FROM THE WIND PTC before any is spent!
THIS IS WARFARE and Big Wind (and its investors) will know soon enough that we're gunning for the subsidies.”
PLEASE CALL TOMORROW.
