I very much doubt “Net Zero Corporate Climate Lobbyists are “Disengaged”, because they are actively promoting wind, solar, and battery TAX SHELTERED projects all over the US.

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2021/09/11/claim-net-zero-corporate-cli...


They do not give a damn about:

1) The cost to taxpayers, ratepayers, or adding costs to government debts

2) The CRIPPLING of the competitiveness of the US economy vs OTHER so-called trading partners, aka trading predators, in Europe, Germany, China, Korea, Japan, etc. They are still using Mexico and Canada as TROJAN HORSES, even AFTER renegotiating NAFTA.

3) Global warming and CO2. They USE these two RE folk scare-mongers to achieve WALL STREET goals.

Wall Street is complicit with these folks, because RE projects bring in BIG FEES and shower the benefits of TAX SHELTERS on wealthy clients, domestic and foreign

HIGH COSTS OF WIND, SOLAR, AND BATTERY SYSTEMS IN NEW ENGLAND

EXCERPT

Wind Solar and Battery Projects are Tax Shelters for the Wealthy, whether Domestic or Foreign

Per standard Wall Street practice for tax-shelters, 

– The cash value of the subsidies to Owners has to be about 45 to 50% of the turnkey cost of RE projects
– The subsidies are “front-loaded”, i.e., in the first 5 years, to enable Owners to shelter as much income as possible in the early years; aka harvesting subsidies.
– The entire project cost has to be written off in about 5 years, no matter the length of the project, per MACRS IRS rules. See URL.
– Owners or VT utilities receive 9%/y on their invested capital, per Vermont Standard Offer RE-Promotion Program.
– Owners or VT utilities may finance up to 50% of the project cost, currently at about 3.5%/y, per Vermont SO program
– Owners or VT utilities are paid about 11 c/kWh (solar), 9 c/kWh (wind), delivered as AC to the grid, per Vermont SO program; the NE grid electricity wholesale price has been about 5 c/kWh or less, starting in 2009.

This explains why Wall Street investment bankers, such as Bloomberg, Lazard, Morgan, etc., are in favor of more and more RE projects for their wealthy clients, such as Warren Buffett.

Warren Buffett Riding the Subsidy/Rapid-depreciation Gravy Train
 
Quote: “I will do anything that is basically covered by the law to reduce Berkshire’s tax rate, for example, on wind energy, we get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That’s the only reason to build them. They don’t make sense without the tax credit.”

Green Mountain Power, GMP, Riding the Subsidy/Rapid-depreciation Gravy Train
 
Vermont utilities buy about 1.4 million MWh/y of hydro power, at 5.7 c/kWh, under a 20-y contract, from Hydro Quebec. The HQ electricity is not variable, not intermittent and does not cause midday solar bulges
 
GMP, a Canadian company, refuses to buy more hydro electricity from HQ, because that electricity would just be a “pass-through”, on which GMP would make minimal profit. HQ has plenty of electricity and is eager to sell it. This approach requires no subsidies!!
 
GMP rakes in millions of our hard-earned money, by investing in: 1) utility-scale solar/battery combos, 2) leasing heat pumps and 3) wall-hung Tesla batteries for playing “catch the peak games”.
 
GMP rides the subsidy gravy train, and plays the “green, forward-looking utility” role.

This morning I saw the news that our local hospital has shut down its maternity ward, due to multiple healthcare professionals quitting, rather than being forced to get an experimental injection!

They have bills to pay, a family to support, yet they have said: enough!
Kudos to these brave, principled people, some of whom have resigned from a position that they have been involved with for decades.

How about the rest of us? At what point do we say that we’re not going to take it any more?

It seems like most citizens will tolerate a loss of their rights and freedoms, if it is done gradually — like slowly turning up the temperature of a pot with a lobster in it.

Most citizens have already looked the other way about innumerable recent liberty extractions:

— like a state mandating that wind energy must provide 30% of the electricity. What happened to the free market?
— like the federal government demanding adherence to “climate change” policies. What happened to real Science?
— like universities forcing “woke” propaganda into the curriculum. What happened to critical thinking?
— like the Attorney General attempting to block forensic election audits. What happened to election integrity?
— like governments requiring that certain citizens must get an experimental injection. What happened to our body, our choice?
— etc., ad nauseam.

When is enough, enough?
Maybe it’s when we realize that there is a pattern here, and that these are not random abuses.

Maybe it’s when we realize that the direction these are taking is towards Socialism/Communism.

Maybe it’s when we realize that the only power that governments, etc. have, is what we have voluntarily granted them.

Maybe it’s when we realize that by tolerating these abuses, that it’s perceived as compliance and weakness — which invites more injustices.

Maybe it’s when we realize that good people are in the majority — and that working intelligently together, we can defeat these assaults on our rights.

Maybe it’s when we realize that we need to collectively and aggressively push back against these attacks on our freedoms.

Australian Health Official Says the Quiet Part Out Loud: “We Will Be Looking at What Contact Tracing Looks Like in the New World Order” (VIDEO)

Dem/Progs were hugely pi..ed, when Hillary, the officially PREDICTED winner (to get the US people used to the idea, of a fait accompli), did NOT win in 2016.

Dem/Progs vowed to never let this happen again.

In 2020, they grabbed a huge opportunity, using COVID as an excuse.


 
They called it UNIVERSAL BALLOT MAIL-IN, and UNIVERSAL BALLOT HARVESTING, aka huge fraud opportunities.

They vowed, this time, they were going to win, no matter what.

Dem/Progs got a familiar, not-so-smart, figurehead, i.e., a well-known insider, 79-y-old Biden, who graduated near the bottom of the class at Syracuse Law School, one of the lowest-ranked in the US.

They got a scary VP, with a big smile. She is of India-Haiti descent.

Biden had run two times for President, and WITHDREW, each time under a cloud; plagiarizing and corruption/self-dealing were the main issues.

Smart Dem/Progs kept Biden in his basement, in Delaware, before the 2020 Election.

He was allowed to smile and wave from a distance, but NOT to answer any Media questions, or opine on anything, without reading from a carefully scripted teleprompter.

After the Dem/Prog coup d’etat was completed, and Biden was safely installed as President, Dem/Progs gave him a pen, to sign a host of previously prepared executive orders, EOs, he had not read. The Media were present to record/distribute the event for all to see.

He was under TOTAL Dem/Prog control, most of the time.
He had a tendency to just wander off.

On election day, there was sheer panic at about 10 PM. 
TRUMP WAS TOO FAR AHEAD!!

On the second, most infamous day in US history, Dem/Progs just stopped the counting in swing states, so they could go into a huddle to “evaluate and regroup”, i.e., RAMP UP THE FRAUD

The subsequent fraud was off the charts. See NOTE

Dem/Progs declared “victory” and billed 75 million of Trump voters ore losers, who were not ready “to move on”

Dem/Progs opened the borders to change the US demographics in favor of Dem/Progs, and cement Dem/Prog “victories” forever.

NOTE: In case you are doubtful of the FRAUD, because of the repetitive crap the Media has been feeding you, here is PROOF of LARGE-SCALE mail-in ballot FRAUD perpetrated several MONTHS BEFORE the 2020 Election. See URL

PREPARATION OF 288,000 MAIL-IN BALLOTS IN BETHPAGE, NY FOR USE IN PENNSYLVANIA MONTHS BEFORE THE ELECTION
https://www.windtaskforce.org/profiles/blogs/preperation-of-288-000...

This article describes a multi-month project, started about August 2020, to fabricate up to 288,000 fake mail-in ballots near Bethpage, Long Island, NY, for use during the 2020 Election in Pennsylvania, a swing state.

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.
