Re: “Burlington's 34-Year-Old District Energy Plan Is Gathering Steam

The McNeil Generating Facility was built in the 1980's to cut our reliance on petroleum based fuel, much of which came from overseas. Green House gas emissions weren't even on the radar mat that time. The planT is a major co2 emitter and its' wood fuel can only be considered renewable on a scale measured in generations not years.. it has little or no actual benefits when it comes to climate change. Unless there is a major investment in a technology that will clean up the emissions,, we would be better off closing McNeil or god forbid,, switching it to just natural gas,, or replacing it with a large solar array that could include the old landfill site. If McNeil cannot get its' emissions in line with 21st century realities, it should be closed.

Re: “Champlain Parkway Opponents Threaten to Derail Burlington Project

I don't know where the quote reqarding a "death spiral" came from as I have never used that phrase in reference to the Champlain Parkway. Nevertheless, this is an antiquated and outmoded design concept that is no longer favored by the transportation design community. We are asking that the FHWA adhere to it's existing policy of requiring periodic EIS reviews to ensure that projects are still viable and incompliance with current standards. The last such review of this project was nine years ago. Such reviews typically occur every 4 to 6 years as was the case in the past with the Champlain Parkway project.

Re: “Artwork Mocks Burlington City Officials for ‘Drinking the Kool-Aid’

Great political satire with a strong wiff of truth to it. It's a lot more honest than the pure baloney that the mayor fabricated about me during the last mayoral campaign. He has much to learn about honest public discours.
