Re: “Coventry Landfill Expansion Wins Act 250 Permit

Once again the NEK gets dumped on.
Once again the state proves that the NEK is the place in Vermont that they are willing to write off as the Love Canal of Vermont.
Time for civil disobedience.
Time to block the Airport road with humans chained to trash trucks.
Time to revive the Monkey Wrench Gang..

Re: “As Hundreds Protest ICE, Border Patrol Runs a Checkpoint

Protesting the presence of secret police in Vermont is an act of patriotism and empathy.
ICE is no different than the Stazi, the Gestapo or the GRU. Their cruelty to children has drawn the attention of the United Nations. They must be disbanded, and their crimes against humanity must be prosecuted.
Shame on them and shame on us for allowing their cruel and unusual behavior.

Re: “Walters: Rallies Abound on Vermont Legislature's Opening Day

As snowmobile season opens, I have a few thoughts on Vermont's carbon footprint.


The powers in Montpelier will fall all over themselves to pave the state with solar installations, and destroy our ridgelines with industrial wind.
Meanwhile we are being overrun with snowmobiles and ATV's that spew carbon at a rate far higher than cars.

Have any studies been done to determine how much these RECREATIONAL vehicles add to Vermont's carbon footprint? As "sportsman's" groups lobby to create more and more trail systems, their carbon emissions are sure to increase, while at the same time the state wants to create a carbon tax that will seriously impact rural workers who simply want to drive to work to support their families.

In addition, elderly and low income Vermonters struggle to heat their homes, and live in fear of a carbon tax on home heating fuel.

If we are serious about climate change, these RECREATIONAL vehicles should either be banned, or their vehicle registrations should accurately reflect their damage in our efforts to become 90% carbon emissions free by 2050.

For the state to do anything less would be serious hypocrisy.

These recreational vehicles are low-hanging fruit in our common interest to reduce Vermont's contribution to climate change.

I would ask you to take a serious look at these carbon spewing machines in the next legislative session.

Re: “Media Note: WCAX to Cut Production Staff

WCAX has become the worst station in New England. All their seasoned staff are gone, replaced with 18 yr. old interns.
Sad to watch the decline., but it mirrors the rest of our general dysfunction.

Re: “Developers Withdraw Swanton Wind Project Proposal

Bill C
The "future we deserve" will not be dictated by developers like David B who use public tax money to enrich himself while foisting his monstrosities on the rest of us.

Re: “First Wind Project on U.S. Forest Service Land Set to Break Ground

Once again our governor has shown his willingness to throw Vermonters under the bus, to sell out to an energy cartel just as evil as OPEC, and to participate in the destruction of a national forest which is a state and national treasure. Greed rules, and our state government from the top on down has their snoot in the trough.
