"Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is a 3 a.m. wake-up call to President Biden and America’s liberal political class: Cease your war on U.S. energy. Europe’s climate obsessions have rendered it vulnerable to Vladimir Putin’s extortion, and the U.S. is in danger of repeating that tragic mistake"

The wind zoning regulations demanded by Apex Clean Energy company (APEX) in Montcalm County are demonstrably irresponsible and should be resisted.
APEX will no doubt make great hay out of my speaking at a rally called Big Wind Go Home and, in fact, APEX land agent Dan Paris already is. But I am here to tell you that it is your…Continue

And if you don't think that bribes have played a role in jamming so called renewable energy down Mainers' throats, I would humbly submit you need to change your information sources and recognize that way too many absurd decisions have been made on the basis of "getting something".

Based on the plan of eliminating fossil fuel plants (they emit CO2 and particulates) and nuclear fuel plants (they are alleged to be dangerous) by 2050, the existing gas, nuclear, coal and oil generating plants would be decommissioned and no new ones would be built.
This would require huge build-outs of wind, solar, and storage systems, and increased electricity supply via external ties to adjacent grids.
There is no way one can close down nuclear, oil, gas…Continue

VT-Department of Public Service found, after a survey of 77 HPs installed in 65 Vermont buildings:
- The annual energy cost savings were, on average, $200/y, but the annual maintenance, and annual amortizing costs (at 3.5%/y for 15 years) would turn that gain into a loss of at least $200/y.
- On average, the HPs provided 27.6% of the annual space heat, and traditional fuels provided 72.4%. These numbers are directly from the survey data. The small percentage…Continue

The article linked below was written by Ben Walsh who works for Vermont Public Interest Group (VPIRG), a powerful renewable lobby in Montpelier.
