This recent cold snap may have been a blessing in disguise. By exposing the reality of the fact that wind and solar can not perform the level of energy needed during high demand periods, the greenies in Massachusetts had to turn to coal and oil to supply themselves with energy, pumping dreaded CO2 into the atmosphere at rates previously unheard of. ISO-NE is sounding an alarm. FINALLY!

It was very well known that ISO-NE, the engineers in charge of reliability of New England generation, have been warning of the need for grown-up solutions to this coming energy crisis.
Organizations like NRCM, CLF and Sierra Club are based in ideals that dictate immediate abolishment of energy from fossil fuel combustion and replacing them with dilute and unreliable renewables.
State Legislators believed these energy quacks and ignored the call from the professionals, the engineers and the price gouged ratepayers and often times addressed these people's concerns with ridicule.
The crisis now upon us is directly a result of contemptuous and deceitful environmental brainwashers, decisions made by lawmakers who don't know the difference between a "kilowatt and a kilobyte" ( phrase borrowed from James LaBrecque ) and salivating piggies willing to abandon their integrity to lap up personally enriching subsidies.

If people are cold enough for long enough they die or wake up to the fact that wind and solar don't work as a replacement for coal, hydro and nuclear.  Thourim based MSR/LFTR (NEW NUCLEAR) will put wind and solar out of business.  LEARN about THORIUM: and

Green Mountain Power: Green energy having a negative ‘tangible rate impact’

Green Mountain Power’s consumer rates are going up 5 percent and the House Energy and Technology Committee met late last week to find out why. It has a lot to do with green energy.

GOOD article - John !

All u can  do is submit  it to the MEDIA - 

I do agree with u 100%  -FOr this Country to meets its  ENERGY  NEEDS - It will take a  CIOMBINATION of ALL Forms of Energy- RENEWABLE & NON-RENEWABLE !

THIS WORLD IS NEVER -EVER Going to able to TOTALY  WIEN itself off of FOSSIL FUELS- and That is  FACT !

LETS NOT  forget that  WIND POWER  has some very serious NEGATIVE  Environmental IMpacts - THAT THe Government of this COUNTRY is  turning a BLIND EYE TO - SO In My opinion I do Not think Wind  -with exception of off-shore - is NOT the Final Answer- and  in my opinion it is  only a PARTIAL TEMPORARY  Solution ..

John Hussey;

I wonder how we can get this article published in the Boston Globe or the PPH or the BDN? They know me and my position so they will stifle it but someone could try.

Soon, RGGI environmental laws will be broken. Will the NRCM, CLF and Sierra Club file lawsuits, or should these be the organizations being sued ?

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT (excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.”

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
