Message regarding EPA - - - - This is my post.

The EPA and DOE have been highly instrumental in crippling the economy in the United States. The entire "Climate Change" scam was developed to "fundamentally transfer wealth" from the US to the rest of the world. That quote is directly from the former Co-Chair of the IPCC, Ottmar Edenhofer, a pro Marxist ECONOMIST, not a scientist. The sooner we can extricate ourselves from the Paris agreement and the UN-IPCC, and get our scientists out from under the blanket they have been stifled under for the last 20 years, the better we will be, the more jobs we will create and the more our economy will recover.

The climate is changing and has been changing for the last 4 billion years. We have to learn to live with that natural change, though it is not going to be catastrophic. CO2 has never been reliably tied to warming scientifically, only on flawed computer models. Renewable energy is never going to take the place of energy dense fossil fuels, nuclear or hydro power. Renewable energy will never provide cheap, reliable, continuous energy. These are facts and we have been fed a litany of lies on what they produce, how much it costs, how many people they employ, how few birds they kill, how they don't make any noise, how they don't spoil the landscape of scenic places, and I can go on.

The problem with these industries is that they rely completely on the "investment" of government subsidies to build them and then RPG's to prop up the price of what they have to charge to make them competitive. Those are taxpayer dollars! They are going into the pockets of elite "investors" that take the money, put in little of their own and then operate these companies taking more and more tax dollars to run them.  Anyone remember Enron? Most of these "investors" are old Enron guys with a new angle.  The whole thing is a fraud and many of them have absconded with the money . . . Sun Edison being the biggest, so far leaving the shareholders with NOTHING.

Believe me, the last forty years or so has seen a huge improvement to our environment. Our air is clean, our water is clean, our rivers have been cleaned up, waste is now being sensibly disposed of, and I do not see a return to the excesses or pollution we saw during the 40's,50's and 60's. Those days are over, but we have to return to what made us great, and that is going to require energy, energy that can't be provided by windmills and solar panels. As far as I'm concerned anyone can put solar on their house if they choose, but I should not have to pay for it through subsidies (my taxes). Windmills belong back in the 1600's, not in the 21st century. I have faith that we can be responsible stewards of our planet and still use what got us here, fossil fuels, nuclear and hydro power.

I want to be sure that my "100% Correct comment, applied to Jim Lutz's excellent post...NOT Mr Start's...

Comment by James M. Talcott on May 12, 2017 at 8:34am

Mr. Start I would respect your writing much more if you could present specifics rather than opinions. As a start, your statement regarding CO2 is completely false, case in point is that NASA and Univ. of Maryland have done research which show the increased levels of CO2 in the atmosphere is speeding up the recovery of ozone and the closing of the ozone hole located at the South Pole. Minor research before posing is advised in order to illustrate a point.

100% Correct!

I TOTALLY DISAGREE  with  persons assessment  of the causes  of the  degradation of our Environment on this Planet- Air, Water & Land ! As a Nation and as a WORLD WE pollute 1000 times more than we did in the 40's,50's, & 60's- AND The pollution that we are poisoning  our Air, Water & LAnd  is 100's of times more toxic  than that era! In addition the CHEMICALS that we  are using  have  NO BREAK-DOWN  life ! The Chemicals  that we are  using to pollute our  (and every body's else's)  are in FACT  DESTROYING the Very oxygen that EVERY LIVING  ORGANIZISM   has to have ! Our Land -Fills are  producing  TOXIC METHANE  gas that virtually seeks out and destroys OXYGEN  MOLECULES !

CO2  literally destroyed the OZONE  layer - The vital Invisible protective Shield  THAT this Planet  MUST Have - If  ANY LIving  thing is survive - in ANY form !

 The use of FOSSIL FUELS (ENERGY) & its By products- in virtually  any form   are  DETRIMENTAL  to the very existence of  ALL Forms of life on this Planet !

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.
