The ALARMISM is even more ramped up now! OMG we are all going to DIE!

A climate change diplomat (I didn't know we had any of those) has written a piece that John "I Am A Viet Nam Vet" Kerry should go to the first meeting of the Climate Change group on Nov 15th and tell them we are in and we are staying.  When are these people going to realize their run on the government Gravy Train is OVER?  True energy independence will not be achieved with costly wind and solar, providing few jobs and no long term quality power.  Read the article below and prepare to be afraid . . . . Very Afraid.

Perusing the latest John Droz newsletter and a blog entry following an article on Death and Climate Change I found this insightful comment - and oh so true.

I consider this whole issue of climate change deaths and refugees as completely moot. Our adaptability goes way beyond the small changes considered. However if we fiddle with our energy reliability and start getting blackouts in the middle of the winter, that is going to kill a lot of people right away.

And it seems to me the same would hold for heat waves and power outages in the midst of one due to no wind blowing. There's so much leaping to conclusions in the climate 'science' on so few facts. There are bazillions of variables in any scientific analysis of any phenomenon and you can't control most of them and really 'scientific' conclusions have to have a ton of qualifying statements. Real people live and die in a real world, not a scientific model world.

Amen Paul Ackerman.  While there are problems with big companies as Paula has lamented, the one thing those big companies do is employ lots of people, provide jobs so our government does not have to take money from those who are working to pay for those who are not.  The mills are closed not because of greed, but because the ill informed elite have a plan to make energy so expensive they can not compete.  We also have had the highest corporate taxes in the WORLD which also drives our companies offshore.  Jobs go with them.  We would not need government controlled healthcare if employers supplied it like they did before.  But there are no big employers anymore.  

I remember in the 50's and 60's when "acid rain" was a real problem in Maine, not from our factories, but rather from the steel and chemical plants in the Great Lakes region.  A concerted effort was made and it was cleaned up.  But the whole thing with the EPA was pushed too far.  Now there are no more Steel mills and fewer chemical plants . . . . thus fewer jobs.  It is that that caused the election to turn out the way it did.  Government can't make it better.  Every time they do it costs ten times more and there is no accountability.

I know there will be accountability at least for the next four years, and there will not be unregulated big business.

Being highly reactive to petroleum products, I'm pretty practiced in avoiding them as much as possible. Those who bemoan gasoline autos and furnace oil have to realize that's not the whole story by a long shot. That roadside and transmission line herbicide spraying uses a petroleum base. I have to avoid lots of fabrics and plasticware. It's often hard to sort out the specific ingredients of stuff but my body has no problem telling me when its there. My granddaughter asked me recently why I can't eat like everyone else. Well it probably started about 70 years ago when I drank kerosene. So much for being an inquiring toddler. I don't want oil drilling or coal mining - but I don't want everyone to suffer from economic upheaval because I'm sick. Like Penny's says, make your own choices. I do. All organically grown food, no oil furnace, no spray foam insulation, etc. etc. Covering the state of Maine with wind turbines and solar panels is not going to diminish the demand for petroleum products. Lots of people making informed choices for themselves can do that. I learned recently that propane is sometimes made from oil and sometimes from natural gas. I don't know if that's true but for some reason I can tell the difference. I don't know if that means natural gas is less toxic in general or just for me. If we're determined not to make good use of hydro power, than natural gas seems a good alternative. With some well thought out biomass, wind and solar supplementing, not replacing. This has to be a long term gradual transition not a headlong jump off the deep end without a life preserver.

If people want to really make a change in their carbon footprint, really want to wean themselves off of foreign oil or any oil, there's nothing whatsoever stopping them.  I drive through Amish country every time I head south from northern Maine.  These people have been described as "the perfect tribe".  They were never addicted to oil.  They continue on in their time honored horse powered ways, and we are all free to choose that path and save the planet.  Nobody is forcing us to put gas in our gas tanks or oil in our furnaces.  We choose to do this because we want to get to work real quick or keep warm, but there are other ways.  Everyone can continue to support the Climate Change group by boycotting all petroleum products.  Why don't they ever talk about that?  Giving up petroleum products?

Right you are. Nothing like full exposure and prosecution to set an example for others wanting to try the same illegal or stupid or underhanded acts. I'm not sure society has mastered the technique of winnowing the chaff from the wheat in the social media. It's akin to the gossip mill in a small community gone nuclear and with the 4th estate (did I remember that right?) of journalism not only incompetent but in collusion, it takes a lot of effort to find the facts and make educated decisions.

@Paula

"Let's give those well-intentioned followers a little respite to get their thinking straight and then focus on marginalizing the really bad actors".

I would say that the really bad actors be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. If we don't do this, then these types will continue to proliferate. No detente with criminals, just the full extent of the law with no exceptions.

Comment by Paula D Kelso on November 13, 2016 at 4:22pm

The question is, I think, do we still believe in the free enterprise system? I think we still have laws regulating monopolies, both vertical and horizontal, don't we? Once we stray very much farther than that from the idea that free markets pick the winners and the losers to the notion that governments should pick the winners and losers, we start getting caught up in a whirlwind of power plays and deceits. My daughter (electrical engineer) and her generation (chemical engineer cousin) work in a global economy whether we like it or not. They travel all over the world, mostly Europe and Asia. But wasn't the global scope true in past economies as well? Even before the industrial revolution? To me, the key is the quality and wisdom of leadership in government. My other child, our son, is full time military. So we (our family) have a personal stake in the peaceful process of trade and foreign policy. Corporations may have rights, but they and the people who run them, still are subject to laws. For any system to work, there have to be checks and balances. That is where I feel things have gone astray. The checks and balances have been undermined, obliterated, minimized to the extent that few dare fight the system. But if this last week is an indicator, masses of people are ready to tackle putting the system back in order. And, as Penny says, let's do that in a civil and constructive manner. For every bad actor there were unwitting dozens who were caught up in the whirlwind. Let's give those well-intentioned followers a little respite to get their thinking straight and then focus on marginalizing the really bad actors.

@Willy

Corporations, a grant of authority from pre-colonial days, empowered equally with colonies and through the U.S. supreme court, equally with states under the Federal System.

This is why the Supreme Court was instituted, to arbitrate disputes between States and that between States and Corporations.

As States, they had an equitable Court structure but for Corporate control and empowerment that the Constitution did not eradicate. By which, it was the second Constitution that embodied the power of corporations whereas the First prevented power outside their respective states.

The power of Corporations has been on the uprise through the U.S. Supreme court since its institution due to the fact that a balance was quashed with the ability of monetary influence over people & politicians. We laid down and accepted decisions to be legal, with some that were within constitutional boundaries, but never have had been legislated into law. REVISIT and STRIKE those.............. YES! ----- AND those resulting laws or decisions. 

There is NO mention of Corporate Rights in either constitution and intentionally left that way for a later interpretation.  Why later....... because most people would not favor their actions and of those that remained to write the second constitution slanted to their favor, over half of those invited refused to attend knowing that what was proposed and drafted and accepted for today, was then per the first constitution, illegal.

They ( about 40 of the 83 ) business persons or wealthy, empowered corporations, through court interpretations of law and constitutionality to do as they wish, provided they bribe and glorify those representing the people.......... those that are the owners of a government which wished to Free all Peoples fleeing nations of oppression.

I woke up born into this mess, though grateful and served to maintain what we have enjoyed.

All sides of Politics is but an attempt to persuade..... they are ALL cons..... Cons to elitism of their own.

We are People............ variable............. as variable as the Universe itself.

Thank you for sharing

 

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/
