The turnkey capital cost for implementing the Vermont Comprehensive Energy Plan, CEP, would be in excess of $1.0 billion/y for at least 33 years (2017 - 2050), according to a 2015 Energy Action Network annual report. If updated to 2021, the numbers would be about $1.25 billion/y for 29 years (2021 - 2050). The CEP lists many measures to reduce CO2 by up to 80%, including the building out of wind and solar systems. See URLs.

TEXAS POWER OUTAGE SHOWS IMPACTS OF THE VAGARIES OF THE WEATHER
Texas’ electric grid nearly melted down in the summer of 2019, when searing temperatures sent electricity demand soaring.
The state’s grid operator was able to keep the lights on, but many observers were worried. They wondered if Texas power plants would be able to match the rising demand, driven largely by residents reaching for the dial on their air conditioning units.

China, India, New England and Vermont
Electric bus proponents often point to China to advance their interests, i.e., sell more electric buses
China has made electric buses and EVs in urban areas a priority to reduce its well-known excessive air pollution, due to: 1) using a lot of coal in dirty, inefficient power plants, and 2) vastly increased vehicle traffic in urban complexes with 15 to 30 million people each.
India has a China…Continue
This article describes some of the election reforms required to avoid a repeat of the Election of 2000
These election reforms are long overdue. They have to be started in Republican Legislatures, because they have the most to lose, if there were a repeat.
This article also includes:
1) A description of the fraudulent preparation of up to 288,000 ballots in envelopes near Bethpage, Long Island, NY, in October 2020, at least a month before the Election of…Continue
This article describes the efficiency of electric vehicles, EVs, and their charging loss, when charging at home and on-the-road, and the economics, when compared with efficient gasoline vehicles.
EVs are designed to be aero-dynamic, and to have low rolling resistance, efficient drive trains, and efficient batteries. This will minimize vehicle weight and maximize range. Tesla is the industry leader regarding efficient EVs.
Finally, the claim by the legacy US and NE Media, "no significant fraud occurred that would overturn the Election" has been PROVEN FALSE in Pennsylvania and Arizona.
Analysis of election and population data of swing states, such as Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, etc., is ongoing.
Results will be added to this article, as they become available.
The issue is not whether Biden obtained more votes than Trump, such as New York and…Continue
Environmental sciences professor, Jacobsen, at Stamford University, CA, claimed in 2015, almost all US energy requirements, for all uses, could be supplied by wind, solar and hydro. He excluded energy from nuclear and from bio sources, mainly because of excessive cropland area requirements, and because forests are a major absorber and storer of CO2.
NOTE: Coal, oil, gas, etc., are used as feedstocks to make millions of products that fill…Continue
The US, a Beacon of Freedom
The US presents itself as a defender of human and civil rights, and Freedom and Democracy
The US organizes Color Revolutions to oust corrupt governments flouting the Rights of the People.
Almost always, those governments are allied with Russia, the Evil Empire, run by Evil Dictator Putin.
It would seem reasonable, the US would have in place nationwide standards to conduct Elections, to ensure Free and…Continue
Info status as of December 30, 2020
As additional news comes in during October through February, this write-up will be revised and augmented.
Biden has a history of:
1) Performing near the bottom of his class, in college and in law school,
2) Repeated plagiarism, while a student and in public office
3) Shady financial dealings with China and Ukraine,
This article describes a multi-month project, started about August 2020, to fabricate up to 280,000 mail-in ballots near Bethpage, Long Island, NY, for use during the 2020 Election in Pennsylvania, a swing state.
This article is a work in progress, because of on-going developments. It has 8 parts, plus Appendix.

Solar systems have their highest electricity production at midday.
The surge of production from near-zero to maximum causes disturbances on the grid, aka DUCK-curves.
Southern California and Southern Germany, with high MW of installed solar, have major DUCK-curves on sunny days.
At present, mostly gas-fired, combined-cycle gas-turbine (CCGT) power plants are used to counteract the DUCK-curve surges.
In California, the shutdowns of 15 of 19 coastal, CCGT…Continue

As more details emerge about Hunter Biden’s emails and Biden Family connections to China, Russia, Ukraine and other countries that would provide most of the metals and minerals America would need under any Green New Deal, we should contemplate how much some families, companies and countries would be enriched by the GND – while others would lose their jobs, see their energy prices skyrocket, and watch their favorite scenic vistas and wildlife habitats get blanketed by wind turbines, solar…Continue
Vermont has a Comprehensive Energy Plan, CEP. The capital cost for implementing the CEP would be in excess of $1.0 billion/y for at least 33 years, per Energy Action Network annual report for 2015, not counting financing and replacements of short-life systems, such as EVs, heat pumps, battery storage systems, etc. See URLs.
The Vermont House overrode Governor Scott's veto of GWSA, and sent it to the Vermont Senate for an override vote
GSWA converts the aspirational goals of the CEP, into mandated goals, with penalties, taxes, fees and surcharges.
GWSA had been called “must pass this Session”.

VAGARIES OF SOLAR
In summer, expensive, weather and season-dependent, highly subsidized, variable, intermittent solar dozes off in late afternoon/early evening, during peak electricity demands, sleeps all night, and does not wake up until about mid-morning the next day, becomes very active around midday creating DUCK curves, especially on sunny days, then dozes off again in late afternoon/early evening, during peak electricity…Continue
