Re: “Public Service Board Proposes Stricter Wind Regulations

Also, add renewable energy generation to your own property, as distributed generation is much better than industrial scale. Unfortunately, inverters (requried to convert the DC generated into AC--unless you only use appliances & electronics that accept 12V DC) generate powerful EMFs that cause dirty electricity issues and thus health problems for the inhabitants of not only the house where the generation is occurring, but also neighboring houses.

Conservation is key. I have a very well insulated house and keep the heat set in the 30s or 40s during most of the winter, and thus use very little energy for heating, which along with transportation and food (which I mentioned in my prev comment), have the greatest impacts on the environment, especially for VT'ers, not electricity (unless used for heating and/or transportation).

Re: “Public Service Board Proposes Stricter Wind Regulations

Finally! This is the best news I've heard in a long time! The PSB has been far too hostile to the public for far too long. Seriously, stop driving a car and go vegan if you want to make a difference to the planet. I did both while I was a teenager -- 1992 and 1990, respectively -- and have remained firmly committed to both for the last quarter century plus. Both do a lot more for the environment than industrial wind, including carbon impact, if you only care about that, since that seems to be the myopic focus of "green" advocates these days, to the exclusion of all other environmental concerns.

Re: “What are your views on biodynamic wine?

Biodynamic is a pseudoscientific farming practice developed by the same racist creator of Waldorf education: Rudolf Steiner. Its proponents claim that it is better than organic, but do practices such as burying ground quartz stuffed into the horn of a cow to harvest "cosmic forces in the soil" really make it so?
