Shumlin’s blinders on wind power  

Credit:  Rutland Herald, reposted at Energize Vermont, energizevermont.org 17 February 2011 ~~

I am very disturbed by the recent action taken by Gov. Peter Shumlin’s administration in its attempt to unduly influence the Agency of Natural Resources and further tip the unbalanced scales in regard to the Lowell wind project. When I voted this past election, I had hoped that Peter Shumlin, as our governor, would show that he represented all the people of Vermont and not just those individuals connected to or a part of the “power” industry. Gov. James Douglas showed his blind favoritism towards Entergy and Vermont Yankee, and it now appears that Gov. Shumlin has the same blinders on when it comes to Green Mountain Power and the Lowell wind project. How can we, as citizens, feel trust in our government when it allows the process to be compromised by our representatives’ naïve and blind faith that “power” companies are only looking out for “our” best interest when in fact their overriding objectives are power, profit and getting someone else to foot the bill?
