Re: “Comedian Kendall Farrell Is Making a Scene

One of the very funnniest in Vermont, for sure!

Great joke!

Re: “Winds of November: Windham, Grafton to Weigh In on Turbine Project

"We, as a society, can't live into the future without renewables ... and wind is going to have to be in the mix."said David Blittersdorf.
Says you, Mr. Blittersdorf. Society can do just fine without wind in the mix, especially since wind turbines only last 15-20 years and require alot more carbon-footprint use than anyone even knows about, making them carbon-neutral at best.
I'm thinking you have more to gain than the average bear, so naturally, this is your line. One I just don't happen to believe. Or the people of Windham/Grafton.Or anyone who actually studies the true environmental COST of these projects.
I guess this full-seasoned reasoning makes me a member of the so-called "mob".

Re: “Pro-Wind Group Seeks to Change Message

MY ANSWER: Less consumption. More efficiency of homes. Solar and small scale wind turbines on business, farms and homes. Solar window panes.Solar roadways. Eating a vegetarian diet (yes, THAT really does work against cutting carbon!).

All of these things make more sense than what industrial wind OPPORTUNISTS keep telling us. Me? Not buying that cow~

I'm thinking 20 people are gonna "dislike" me immediately because: a.)I can't see the *big* pictures of industrial wind taking over our precious Green Mountains or b.) they are paid trolls to do so.

Happy Friday Afternoon!

Re: “Energy Critics Make Strongest Statehouse Push

YoungVermonter, I appreciate your passion for stopping pollution, which is why I have gone vegetarian. I'm sure you are educated enough to know that is the NUMBER 1 way in which we can achieve an immediate reduction in our carbon footprint!

Industrial Wind development in Vermont is a very bad idea.Why, Professor Ben Luce, Professor of Physics and Sustainability Energy Studies at Lyndon State College, who was instrumental in developing industrial wind energy projects in New Mexico, and now lives in Vermont, is AGAINST industrial wind development in Vermont...and here's why: it doesn't fit our landscape. More cons than pros. Too close to people and wildlife protected areas. And (get this!) not enough wind to make it feasible!

I take umbrage to your comment about it being about aesthetics. Every single testimony given yesterday at the statehouse, and in every news story written, it's pretty clear opponents are calling for better siting so it doesn't affect people's health. And big blades & turbine motor components are produced in China, where the dirty carbon footprint to develop them, bring them here, and erect them is so huge, there's practically a net-neutral gain. We can do better.

And we will.

I believe in small-scale renewables, better efficiency-measures and....(unbelievably so!): LESS CONSUMPTION
.
Better get used to unplugging your computer more. That's the future.
