Montpelier protest targets Shumlin, wind development  

Credit:  By WCAX News | Nov 05, 2012 | www.wcax.com ~~

An unusual political protest Monday in Montpelier targeting Governor Shumlin and his support of industrial wind projects.

A group calling itself Mountain Occupiers unfurled two 40-foot banners from the roof of the Capital Plaza Hotel on State Street at noon. The group opposes wind projects on Vermont ridge lines and challenges Shumlin’s assertion that these wind projects will help stop climate change.

“It may not be clear yet to people that Shumlin is himself a stock holder in oil and gas companies, so all his talk about climate change and how important it is, he is a participant in the degradation of the climate, of the planet,” said the group’s Peggy Sapphire.

Mountain Occupiers claim to be a network of concerned citizens who “seek to promote a rational energy policy that effectively addresses climate change.”
