“Clean energy” bought with dirty money  

Credit:  Mountain Times | August 24, 2016 | mountaintimes.info ~~

Phil Scott believes renewable energy is critical to our future and the future of our planet. But Vermont’s current energy policies are doing damage to our environment and to our economy. Today we are destroying Vermont’s ridge lines and landscape by building helter-skelter industrial wind projects so that we can produce electricity that is costing ratepayers four times more than the market price. Then we are selling the Renewable Energy Credits to Connecticut so they can continue to burn dirty fuel. Sue Minter has pledged to continue these disastrous policies of building industrial wind and solar.

Phil Scott believes the millions of dollars in tax subsidies being poured into renewable energy would be better spent developing renewables on a Vermont scale—residential and agricultural—not industrial.

He said, “I think that it’s unfair to destroy our ridgelines any further than they have been already, and I think we should stop now.”

With the wiser policies advocated by Phil Scott we can reduce our carbon footprint, protect our landscape and reduce our energy costs.

This is not a partisan issue. Senator John Rogers, D-Essex/Orleans, stated recently, “The establishment Democrats have been bought and paid for by the renewable energy developers, and I don’t want anything to do with their dirty money. I think that’s what Sue Minter represents, taking money from all of them.”

For the sake of our environment and our economy, please vote Phil Scott for Governor.

Dave Kelley, Greensboro, Vt.
