Each year has peak temperatures during the summer months June, July, August. The below graph shows those peak temperatures in Vermont, for about 40 years.


Those temperatures were measured by the weather stations in Vermont of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NOAA


Vermont has four weather stations; Burlington, St Johnsbury, Castleton and Windsor.

New Hampshire also has four stations


The peak temperatures increased by 1.5 F over 40 years, or 0.0375 F per year.


Almost all people cannot sense the difference of 77 F and 78.5 F


A similar graph shows the minimum temperatures during the months of December, January, February


The minimum temperatures increased by 4.2 F over 40 years, or 0.1 F per year. Most older Vermonters agree, winters in Vermont have been getting warmer.

Heating demand is driven by temperature difference, which was about (65 F, indoor - 9.8 F, outdoor = 55.2 F) in 1980, and became (65 F, indoor - 14 F outdoor) = 51 F in 2020

At present, it takes 7.6% less Btu for space heating a house than 40 years ago.  


Already-struggling, over-taxed, over-regulated Vermonters, in a low/near-zero, real-growth Vermont economy, would be required to spend at least $1.5 billion per year (during high inflation and high interest times), starting in January 2023, for the next 27 years, to maybe reduce Vermont CO2 emissions to the 2050 target of the VT Comprehensive Energy Plan.


That extreme hardship spending would have ZERO impact on temperatures in Vermont, which is a near-invisible pinprick on a world map.


Vermont’s best approach is to be as energy efficient as economically feasible regarding:


1) Highly sealed/insulated housing

2) High-mileage gasoline vehicles

3) Closing down the less-than-25%-efficient, tree-burning power plants (the energy equivalent of 3 out 4 trees is wasted), such as McNeil and Ryegate.

Tree-burning power plants and heating plants/stoves are major contributors to Vermont’s CO2 and ground level air pollution from sub-micron particles, which are as toxic as those of coal burning, and most harmful to people, especially pregnant women, children, elderly, and those with cardio/vascular ailments.


Thermometer record shows warming starting long before the 1950’s.

We had warming from the 1910’s to the 1940’s and then cooling from the 1940’s to the 1970’s, and then warming from the 1980’s into the 2000’s, where the temperatures have peaked, as they did in the 1930’s, and a cooling trend has appeared.


Here’s the U.S. chart (Hansen 1999) showing warming and cooling before 1979, and then the UAH satellite chart showing the warming and cooling from 1979 to present.


As you can see, there was warming in North America in the recent past.

You don’t have to go back hundreds or thousands of years to find a period that was just as warm, or warmer, than today.

The Early Twentieth Century was just as warm as today, as recorded in numerous written temperature charts from all over the world.

Combined, these two charts represent the real temperature profile of the Earth, where it was just as warm in the recent past as it is today.

The CO2 has had no visible effect on temperatures

There is much more CO2 is in the air today, than was in the air in the Early Twentieth Century, yet it is no warmer today that it was then.

This is the BIG LIE the climate-change alarmists tell.

It is refuted by the written temperature record, which is available to just about anyone who cares to look.

One has to wonder why all the alarmist experts, and some of those on the skeptic side, continue to ignore the Early Twentieth Century, and the bastardization that has taken place to erase the Early Twentieth Century from memory.

The written temperature record and the Early Twentieth Century temperatures repudiate the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming (CAGW) claims of the Alarmists.

That’s all you need, as proof that CO2 has no discernible effect on the Earth’s atmosphere.

Almost 100 years of increased CO2 going into the atmosphere, yet it is no warmer today than it was then.

What’s left to say?

CO2 is a Life Gas; No CO2 = No Flora and Fauna

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


(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 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?" 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.”

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.
