    Vermonters’ Plea: DO NOT REINSTATE the Wind Energy PTC

    Dear Senators Leahy and Sanders and Congressman Welch: We, the undersigned, join many thousands of U.S. taxpayers and ratepayers nationwide in urging you and your colleagues to eliminate the 22-year old wind production tax credit (PTC). You should know by now that development of wind power in the United States does not reduce our need to maintain and build reliable generation, nor does it add materially to employment in our country. The small amount of energy it generates is intermittent, . . .

This is clever corporate wording for ‘improving profits’ at our community’s expense and also makes the Stockyard Hill Project more attractive to on-sell to foreign investors.

    Ethical questions re: Simon Chapman

It appears possible Professor Chapman is conducting research without prior ethics committee approval from the Human Research . . .
