Vermont is on a course to a goal that would have 90 percent of all of our energy, including automobiles, come from so-called renewable sources.
The bulk of that would come from giant wind and solar farms; in fact, David Blittersdorf (CEO of All Earth Renewables) estimates that we would need 200 miles of ridge line wind turbines, Vermont is 160 miles long.
Add to that the upcoming push to pass a huge tax on home heating oil, natural gas, propane and gasoline (among others) and we are facing some huge obstacles to our way of life here in Vermont.
As a 30-year resident of this area and lifelong Vermonter, I think it is extremely important that we know where the people who want to represent us in the State House stand on these issues.
They are all very aware of it and we should be asking all of them now, before the election.
