We have “Shades of The Daily Sun and now-former reporter Mike Kitch, who believed that anyone with money should have it taken from them by their politicians, to bail out folks whose own politicians have screwed them over for years.
Just so we’re clear the Democrat Race-Pimps Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are in favor of transitioning to what the left pretends are cleaner forms of energy (they are not). But they are concerned that the current crop of Fracking-banners would place an unfair burden on African Americans.
The EPA has recognized New Hampshire for its significant strides in reducing pollutants from coal-fired power. But the crazy climate alarmists can’t abide cheap, abundant energy. So, they do dumb things. The most recent one required first responders to deploy police cars, boats, and a helicopter.
If you don’t stop using cheap, abundant energy leprechauns riding chariots pulled by unicorns will come and destroy the earth. Sound far-fetched? No more so than NH Democrat energy policy reforms they claim are necessary to “heal the planet.”
Democrats love taxes. What they love more are taxes (or tax increases) upon which they don’t have to vote. The Regional Green House Gas Initiative is just such a scam. But it’s not the only game in town.
The biomass power debate is virtually ended in New Hampshire. This past week federal regulators declared the NH law to force power companies to buy electricity from wood-burning plants, illegal. Yesterday the plants dropped their court case.
New Hampshire’s Biomass mess is winding down. The Legislature refused to override the governor’s veto on a timber-industry sop. And federal Regulators declared the original law whose veto was overridden invalid. Ratepayers should be cheering.
Easy money, no up-front taxpayer backstops, and a resource people want and need. So, sure, let’s ban it. That’s the plan according to a report from US News. Gov. Sununu is banning oil and gas drilling off the coast of New Hampshire.
California has the highest gasoline prices in the nation. Higher than Hawaii. And Governor Gavin Newsom wants an investigation into why? Let me help. High Taxes. Excessive Regulations. Dwindling Infrastructure. Put another way; Democrat Policy is to blame.
