Energy & Environmental Newsletter: February 25, 2019
By John Droz, Jr. -- February 25, 2019

This version of the AWED Newsletter is dedicated to a single topic: the proposed US Green New Deal (GND). The next issue will revert to our normal format about general Energy and Global Warming reports.

One reason the GND was chosen to be focused on here, is that it is a superior indication of how politicized scientific and economic matters have become.

The GND is also a relatively rare major blunder by the Progressive Left. There are at least two significant reasons why it is an enormous political mistake:

1- the GND is technically impossible (e.g., here) — so such a proposal reveals that the Left has a profound disconnect from reality, and

2- the GND would bankrupt the US — so this scheme exposes the Left’s true anti-American agenda.

It’s fascinating to see how many Progressive groups and much of the media are desperately trying to reframe this PR disaster. Rather than acknowledge the truth of the GND’s absurdity, their current most popular ploy is to characterize the GND as “aspirational.” Well, yes, the Left does have a lofty goal, and they have now let slip what it really is: to destroy America as we know it.

If that wasn’t enough to wake up inattentive citizens, considering point #1 above, how credible are the goals of those who are technically incompetent???

One more fact to mull over: who else is trying to undermine America? Yes, the Communist regimes of Russia and China. It took them a long time, but the Mueller probe into collusion with our enemies may finally be pointed in a legitimate direction. The GND could have (and may have) been written by the Russians and Chinese.

Below is a sampling of reports and commentaries on the GND (both pro and con). I was privileged to see a draft version of one of the most detailed GND analyses yet, being done by Dr. Ben Zycher (AEI). Unfortunately this careful study was not ready for release at the time we went to press. I’ll pass it on ASAP.

Some of the more important articles in this GND Overview are:

And don't listen to AOC re: the immorality of having children in the world of the 21st century.

If you have a queasy stomach and have precious grandchildren, DO NOT READ about Millennials are Clueless about Communism and certainly do not read the NY Times articles cited about the "Red Century" and all the glorious positives of 100 years of Soviet Communism.

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"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."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(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 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From 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?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From 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.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

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.

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
