She's bought and paid for.

Re: “Minter Gains Backers as Dunne Scrambles to Explain Wind Position

Kind of hard to imagine how you can call a group "Vermont Conservation Voters" when they want to build gigantic industrial facilities on top of our Green Mountains.

Re: “Environmentalist Bill McKibben Dumps Dunne for Minter

Matt has done something very rare for a politician: he has listened to us. He has spent time up here in the Northeast Kingdom and heard first hand of the way industrial wind development has negatively impacted our communities. And why should how we feel not count for something?

The wind developers and their enablers (VPIRG, etc.) say that the public overwhelmingly support industrial wind development. So why not trust the public to make the decision? Or does the public only approve of commercial wind in the abstract? Whenever it is actually put to a vote it is usually opposed by wide margins. Maybe the wind people have been blowing smoke at us for a long time.

Matt has NOT taken an anti-wind stance. He has a nuanced approach that leaves it up to the people of Vermont. Why is this bad, I ask?

Re: “Dunne’s New Wind Stance Draws Criticism — and Surprising Praise

I don't see why coming out in favor of community control is interpreted as "anti wind". What's wrong with trusting the judgment of Vermonters? The pro-wind people say that Vermonters are overwhelmingly in favor of wind development? But then they don't trust Vermonters with the actual decision? Sounds like hypocrisy to me.
