A Open Letter To My President, Barack Obama...Sir, There is Nothing "Smart" About These Grid Plans, Here In Northern CA_Green Earl

in P060809PS-0156 - Barack Obama | Government News from the White House and Congress - Senate/House of Representatives on GovNews

Mr. President: Please look again at expansions of the power grid,
there is little "Smart" about these grand plans. In our area, as
many as 6,000 rural homeowners and small farmers, many who
conserve and use solar themselves as an alternative energy source,
will be displaced by 600 miles x 1,000, clear cut, swatch of High
Power Transmission Lines, in Northern CA...For What. To bring
electric power, from Coal-Fired Turbines, Where? in Colorado,
Montana, Idaho, Utah. (Ten New Ones Are Being Planned). Sir we
can do better than following the same, tired, worn-out, polluting
and poisoning, GM mentality, form of power and distribution.

Please help us to think Globally...but act locally. Thank You
_Green Earl, Founder of

YESWECANSOLVEIT Obama Group, American Energy Conservation
Group, YESWECANSOLVEIT. Picken's Plan, YESWECANSOLVEIT. Producing Negawatts...Since 1981.

Please come out here and spend a day...see what these power
brokers are about to destroy...Nothing but Greed, Mr. President
,Nothing "Smart" about this grid, at all.

Hi Team!

Things have gone extremely well with our new endeavor the past few weeks. Over 360 of us came together to fund entrepreneurs from both in the U.S. and around the world making a huge difference in their lives. I am so proud of our lending team – we have made 293 loans helping to fund 157 entrepreneurs to date. In fact, we are the top lending group for many of the U.S. entrepreneurs!

As of yesterday, all available loans to the U.S. have been funded but we expect new profiles to come online shortly. We will send an alert just as soon as they do.

A big thanks to Kiva’s fastest growing lending team. Again, stay tuned for more U.S. profiles to be posted and remember to PASS IT ON and get all your friends and family join us!

Hi, Maria. I became a lender because of your example. I made my first loan yesterday, and received notification that the loan was disbursed last night. How thrilling to learn that my few dollars are helping someone thousands of miles away.

Helping to make a difference one dollar at a time,

To wake up this am and get an email from KIVA that the group of women entrepreneurs I contributed a small amount to received their funding is the most awesome feeling! I'm on the financial brink myself due to unemployment, health challenges, and etc., but I value what I do have, a land of opportunity! These women inspire me! I am simply thrilled. It's a Beautiful Day! : ) Barbara C.B. in Escondido CA

Thank you for creating a Team. I just created 2 Teams: a common interest OPEN team, "We Love You!" and a faith tradition by request Team "Cup of Cold Water". It seemed right to join Team Maria since we share CA entrepreneur, Erik, the Marine with a great game (his loan is funded and is now repaying). Watching a Kiva entrepreneur's loan fund is just wonderful practical, and inspiring fun.
Cheers to Denise and her $5K challenge. Great Idea!

Dear Maria, Say Hi to the Gov for me. I just made 3 loans, oldest first selected. As a Vietnam Vet, happy that two were in Vietnam. Also
I am a pioneer in conservation and solar generation who could use a little financing myself, please mention it to your cousin, in the biz. My site at ( often features a Google
Donated ad for Kiva. I did not really understand fully how it worked until I started following you on Twitter. Cool program. I like it.

I joined on my birthday. I made four loans as my birthday present to myself. It was the best gift I've received in my 54 years! Giving to receive is a great concept. I hope the four people receive as much happiness from the loans as I have. Thank you, Maria Shriver, for the invitation to join you! Keep up the great work!

I've joined the Team and have my own lending team as well. I'm currently in the midst of a challenge to raise $5,000 in loans during June so that's where my attention is focused now. I am very happy to see the U.S. opened up now for loans.

Welcome. This, from one of your team members for the day.
I joined to say how glad we are to have you join our evergrowing and ever hopeful wonderfully international band of lenders. But especially, I joined to ask you to consider making at least an occasional loan to some of Kiva’s entrepreneurs who live outside our own backyards, as well. Those of us who have been lending with Kiva for some time now deeply believe that we are all related, and that lending around the world is one way of showing our solidarity and our connection. Happy Lending.

Looking forward to supporting entrepreneurship in the US. I wish there was a way that I could help these women with their business or concept. Money is a great start but "teach a woman to fish and feed her for a lifetime" ;) . Best wishes to all lenders and recipients.

Hi Team! Starting TODAY, and for the first time ever, we can lend to entrepreneurs in our own backyard. To find an entrepreneur here in the U.S., just type "United States" in the search box on the lend page. It's that simple. And don't forget to apply your loan to our lending group so we can see what kind of an impact all of us can make together!

How Passes Landmark Climate Bill...Stage Is Set For Senate Action

Solar, Wind, Bio, Energy News And Commentary By_Green Earl, 30 year Pioneer In Conservation & Solar Energy

Breaking News *** Breaking News *** Breaking News ***

House Passes Landmark Climate Bill. Stage is Set for Senate Action.

Dear David,

We did it!

Moments ago, on a 219 to 212 vote, the U.S. House of Representatives
passed the landmark American Clean Energy and Security Act, the most
important environmental and energy legislation in our nation's

Environmental Defense Action Fund and our broad network of members,
activists and strategic partners played a huge role in pushing this
bill over the top.

You helped generate tens of thousands of emails, thousands of phone
calls, dozens of paid ads, and countless legislative contacts with key
House members and their staff.

EDF President Fred Krupp released the following statement:

Today's vote is a huge achievement for the country and the climate,
and we applaud Speaker Pelosi, Chairmen Waxman and Markey, and all
members of the House who helped craft this landmark legislation and
get it passed.

The bill that emerged from the House has the fundamental structure we
need to significantly reduce carbon pollution while growing the
economy. It puts strong cap on emissions and reorients our energy
market to make low-carbon power the goal. It ensures that utility
rates will stay affordable and a competitive playing field for U.S.

Today's vote opens the door for President Obama to sign
comprehensive climate legislation into law this year.

For everything you and the rest of our Action Network community did to
help us achieve this historic victory, we can't thank you enough.

This is a day to remember, the day we began turning the corner toward
a green energy future -- a future free from the catastrophic threats
of run-away global warming.

We have our work cut out for us in the Senate, but today's victory
gives us real hope of finally signing climate legislation into law.

Thanks for your activism and support and for everything you help make

City can't hide from TANC's controversy

* By Record Searchlight Editorials
* Posted June 25, 2009 at midnight

Our view: The city balked at talking power lines at a League of Cities meeting, but it can't escape.

They might have been genuinely trying to avoid public confusion.

They might have wanted to keep hecklers from crashing one of the normally mellow meetings of the California League of Cities, affairs generally devoted to arcane state policy questions that affect city governments.

But it's hard to avoid the impression that Redding city officials were simply suffering a cowardly moment when they balked at having the league members discuss the TANC Transmission Project at a regional meeting originally scheduled for Redding late next month.

Instead, city officials from around the Sacramento Valley have hastily rearranged their plans and now plan to meet in the Butte County town of Paradise - keeping the angry and well-organized crowds agitating to short-circuit the project at a safe distance.

Well, maybe. Of the three potential routes that run from Shasta County south through the valley, two cross Butte County. Indeed, one spans Chico's popular Bidwell Park (a charming spot where disc golf courses stir local controversy - never mind high-voltage power lines), then traverses the city of Oroville and runs through the surrounding orchard country. Another passes through several riverside wildlife refuges and the rice-farming belt before skirting the Sutter Buttes. Either way, it's sure to make some people unhappy.

Butte County environmentalists say the proposed power-line project hasn't provoked the same backlash there that it has in our parts, but the public mood can shift quickly.

By the time the League of Cities meets in Paradise, wary Redding officials might well find they can run from the TANC controversy, but they can't hide.

Interesting side note while city after city, state after state is passing renewable energy bonding measures, including yesterdays announcement that San Jose, Ca has passed a large
Green Bond measure to help finance solar installs, and Oregon behind Vermont has passed new Net Metering Laws that force the utilities to buy back power, PG&E and the rest are fighting this tooth and nail here in California.

I would ask again...What is REU's priorities toward renewable energy bond measures....Funding for TANC...Funding for new Gas-Fired Turbines.

Citizens...City Leaders, REU management...You have to ask yourself, What does every other city, county and state know that REU does not? Did Paul Hauser move to the Redding area
with a preconceived plan? Why is our truly renewable community, (near Shasta Dam) embracing the tired, old failed energy policies of the past? The same policies that helped to put GM in the tank. Why are we being put in the TANC Mr. Hauser? What did that job pay? Who...exactly who,are you working for?

It sure in H*ll is not the people of Redding, Shasta County or your PUBLIC owned utility.

And why are we passing bond measures for conventional power transmission to the bay area cities and beyond, while their city leaders are passing solar, green bonds for their citizens. What is the difference? REU_Green Earl

Stop Your Bitching, And Complaining America...It's Time To Take Back Your Power !!! _Green Earl

Call Your Representative, Say Vote "YES" On American Clean Energy And Security Act, Repower America dot Org

Solar, Wind, Bio, Energy News And Commentary By_Green Earl, 30 year Pioneer In Conservation & Solar Energy


Dear Green Earl,

Call Your Representative:


Say "Vote 'yes' on American Clean Energy and Security Act." Then report your call here.

This is an extraordinary moment.

There are mere days before the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on the most unprecedented clean energy and climate legislation in our nation's history. But, our opponents have stepped up a blatant distortion campaign on TV and behind closed doors to scare Congress from taking action.

They know this vote will be close. But, what the special interests have in money and rhetoric, we have in facts and supporters like you.

Let your Representative know that you want a cleaner and stronger economy today. Urge them to support the American Clean Energy and Security Act now.

Call your Representative: 877-9-REPOWER (877-9-737-6937)

When you call, you will be given talking points and simple instructions to be connected to your Representative. Afterwards, help us coordinate our campaign by reporting your call here.

Just a few days ago, Members of Congress who oppose clean energy paraded around a map that distorts the truth about curbing carbon pollution. Not only was the analysis misleading, the computer file still listed the original author -- the coal lobby.

And another group, funded by the fossil-fuel industry, released targeted TV ads designed to drum up fear ahead of the vote.

We can't let the corporate interests fighting to keep the status quo scare us into sticking to rising fuel costs, more job losses and a continued dependence on foreign oil.

Congress has debated clean energy and the climate crisis for decades. Now is the time to act. Let's make sure the House passes this historic legislation.

Please call your Representative: 877-9-REPOWER (877-9-737-6937)

Thanks for all that you do,

Steve Bouchard

June 24, 2009 Ukiah, Mendocino County, North California

A unique situation
Ukiah Daily Journal
Letter to the Editor

I would like to use this forum to alert the citizens of Mendocino County to a unique situation that will benefit us greatly, and have a positive impact on our children and their children.

In addition, I would like to also alert our elected officials, the Board of Supervisors, City Mayors and other county officials to this same issue and to ask for their help in securing it.

I am speaking of our current opportunity to create a county-wide Energy & Water Conservation Program. Due to a couple of pieces of recent legislation and the specific contents of President Obama’s Economic Recovery Act of 2009, our county (along with others) has been given all the puzzle pieces necessary to establish an energy efficiency program, which will lower our utility costs as well as conserve water. We can also curtail global warming and reduce our carbon output by burning less coal and fossil fuels which generate our electricity.

Our new President and his advisors have decided to stand behind the concept that it is less expensive to make our existing homes and commercial buildings more energy efficient than to explore and develop new energy sources. By using the guidelines of SB-811 and portions of the stimulus package, a loan program can be established that would allow home and business owners to have energy efficient items installed on their homes and commercial buildings.

An excellent model is the program that was started two months ago by our Sonoma County neighbors. Home and commercial building owners in Sonoma county can borrow up to 10 percent of the value of their properties to install solar panels, add insulation, install new thermal windows, convert to efficient lighting or just about any energy saving or water saving device available. The borrower has up to 20 years to pay back the money, at 7 percent interest, and is billed and paid with the property tax bill bi-annually. If the owner should sell his home, the loan stays with the property and is then assumed by the new owner. The savings in monthly utility costs should help make the bulk of these payments. And, in addition, a 30 percent tax credit is offered (to homeowners) for most items as well as rebates from PG&E and some cities. All of this combined means that up to 60 percent or more of the up front costs, depending on area and program, will be rebated back during the first year as well as the energy and water savings. And of course every month your savings mount.

This is a fantastic opportunity to really do something beneficial for ourselves and our community. The only issue is that we need the help and fast action of our County and City officials. There is a generous supply of money available to start these programs. Funding is offered for planning, hiring extra administrators and supervisory costs. But, the funding is available on a “first come, first served” basis and will go fast. It will probably be too late in 6 months.

We need our elected officials to act with haste, to apply for this funding while it is still available to our County. We have the reputation in this County of not embracing change, especially quickly. But we have a situation here that requires immediate action.

The funding is all there for the asking, but we must ask. Please contact your elected officers and let them know that you think this program is important, and that forming committees and doing studies will simply take too long. We need an energy conservation program now.

Please write or call your Supervisor and/or Mayor and voice your support.

PG&E "A Champion Of Solar Within California" _ Hardly PG&E Shows It's True Colors Again. Green Yes, But Not What Your Thinking_Green Earl


Solar, Wind, Bio, Energy News And Commentary By_Green Earl, 30 year Pioneer In Conservation & Solar Energy

The author of the preface below, calls PG&E "A Champion Of Solar
In California.."Never forget PG&E, even now, when they lead the
nations utility companies in their own solar a
utility company, who is just taking advantage of the big buck,
now that it's here in credits and rebates. If anything they held
California's conservation and solar industry back thirty years.

Don't make me puke, That's Like Calling BP Oil and Gas A Champion
For Solar.BP is an oil and gas company. They make solar electric
panels, or did once, but they are an oil and gas company..right
now, running ads to remind you there is oil out there along
California's coast...Drill Baby Drill..

So now there are a couple of more things you can count on
besides just Death and Taxes...These companies...These
Hyena's and Jackals Will Never Change Their Spots...

I don't care how many warm and fuzzy tv ads you see of PG&E
reps in the classroom. The only Californian PG&E cares for
are Californian's that own PG&E Stock, and they've been know
to send those folks down the river too...if it suited their
needs._Green Earl

Two bills that would improve the affordability and accessibility of solar in California have met with opposition from an unexpected quarter: Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), a utility company that has previously been a champion of solar within the state. The utility, in fact, manages the impressive and complicated state-wide California Solar Initiative solar PV rebate program. Everyone knew the bills under consideration would displease utilities state-wide, but outright opposition took the bills’ supporters by surprise, it seems.

The two bills would change California’s approach to net metering (get some background on net metering in California and one of the bills by reading my first post on the topic, here). AB 560 would effectively force utilities to extend net metering payments for years and years to come. AB 920 would make utilities responsible for compensating consumers for all net excess generation (NEG) by lifting the current one year “expiration date” on net metering credits.

The Mercury News reports:

Put simply, PG&E’s objection is that the two measures would make solar too popular. The utility says that would be unfair to its non-solar customers, who under existing law must subsidize rebates and credits paid to solar-power users.

But some supporters of the bills say PG&E’s real worry is about its own financial burden, since it sells less electricity to solar-power users.”The big picture, unfortunately — and counter to their public image — is that PG&E doesn’t like the idea of an unbridled solar market,” said Bernadette Del Chiaro, director of clean energy programs at Environment California, a nonprofit statewide environmental group and sponsor of Assembly Bill 920. “Unfortunately, the business model doesn’t yet allow for a market in which customers generate their own electricity.”

This latter point is the crux of the problem. Utilities are required to meet government-mandated minimums renewable energy available in their portfolio. In order to do this, they need to make solar an attractive financial proposition for both residential and commercial consumers. The utilities do benefit by the simple expedient of not having to supply the kilowatt-hours now being produced instead by consumers’ renewable energy systems. This saves on both production and distribution costs. But what happens when so many customers are providing their own energy that the utility is no longer selling enough electricity to make a profit? For all the utility industry’s hype about this scenario, it’s surely a long way off–yet it is a valid point.

What do you think, readers? Do utilities have a responsibility to make solar affordable at the cost of their own profit?

Before the banks, health care, before the car companies...
these big power brokers and their lobby are the real
challenge to alternative and renewable energy success
in California and the nation, and must be dealt with.

I'm for taking them over, checking all their books and
records, then hunting them all down like war criminals.

North state TANC opposition swells

By Scott Mobley (Contact)
Wednesday, June 24, 2009

Rapidly swelling opposition to a proposed 600-mile high-voltage transmission line through Northern California has grabbed the attention of top north state legislators.

Both state Sen. Sam Aanestad, R-Grass Valley, and Assemblyman Jim Nielsen, R-Gerber, say they have serious concerns about the $1.5 billion power line. The planned transmission towers, wires and substations could severely disrupt lives in the north state for the sake of delivering power to distant urban dwellers, they said.

"There are so many aspects of this that are problematic," Nielsen said. "Citizens are very disturbed and upset."

Bill Bird, a spokesman for Aanestad, said the senator has started calling the proposed line "the energy canal."

"He has some real strong objections to his district, which is the most beautiful in California, being used as a construction site for benefit of people in the Bay Area who apparently support renewables but won't construct any of their own plants," Bird said of Aanestad.

The Transmission Agency of Northern California (TANC), a consortium of municipal utilities that includes Redding, has been planning the power line since fall 2005. They have yet to pick a precise route for the line and are studying several options.

The general power line route would run from Ravendale in Lassen County near the Nevada border to Silicon Valley. The lines would cross over or near property owners in Cassel, Burney, Round Mountain, Oak Run, Millville, Happy Valley, Cottonwood and Red Bluff.

TANC officials have said the line will allow member utilities to more efficiently import cheap hydroelectric power from the Pacific Northwest and tap renewables that may one day be developed in northeastern California.

Paul Hauser, Redding Electric Utility director, said power imported on the line could be crucial in helping the utility meet state renewable energy mandates and cutting greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, as required under state law.

Aanestad and Nielsen worry north state property owners could pay a steep price for this compliance with the state's environmental goals.

Both Nielsen and Bird, speaking for Aanestad, said they would try to block the TANC project if the agency tried to remove people from their homes through eminent domain to build the line.

"There have been efforts by environmental groups to block construction of water storage," Bird said. "There is nothing wrong with borrowing a page from that playbook and tying this thing up."

Aanestad hasn't yet come out against the TANC line but is watching it closely, Bird said.

"He wants to make sure landowners are dealt with in a respectful way," spokesman Bird said. "He has stated his concern but will wait until this gets going and they choose an actual route and see how constituents are treated."

Nielsen said he is troubled that TANC did not move quickly enough to inform people about its power line proposal. He will monitor the project.

"If eminent domain is used, the California Alliance to Protect Private Property may get involved," Nielsen said. "We will be raising environmental issues, asking and seeking answers to questions about where is this power (in northeastern California), how forthcoming is it."

Opposition to the power line was almost immediate among property owners who first started learning of the project late this winter and early spring, when TANC and the Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) started the state and federal environmental review process.

Hundreds packed meetings in Burney, Chico, Redding and other north state cities. An opposition group sprang up in Round Mountain, already home to a large Pacific Gas and Electric Co. substation.

Shasta County Supervisor Les Baugh last month announced his concerns about the TANC line and helped organize a meeting in Cottonwood that drew about 350 people. That meeting spawned a second protest group, the North State Land Owners Committee (NSLOC).

Julie Henderson, a NSLOC spokeswoman and organizer, said her group has combined with Round Mountain and they are working with TANC power line opponents in Red Bluff, Maxwell, Winters and Davis.

"The more people we get to stand up, the better our chances of working together and staying together to stop this," said Henderson, of Cottonwood. "I am not losing my house."

Henderson said she has been disabled for three years and her husband has been unemployed since December. They could not qualify for a loan if they had to look for a new property, she said.

"Once they take our homes, they will devastate us financially," Henderson said.

The TANC controversy has registered among League of California Cities members, who wanted to discuss it at a business meeting for the organization's Sacramento Valley division slated for Redding on July 20.

Redding officials urged the League to not discuss TANC at that meeting, noting the organization would not be taking public comment. City staffers did not want the League meeting confused with the open meeting planned July 8 at the Cascade Theatre and another meeting tentatively planned for later this summer, said Barry Tippin, assistant city manager.

"We felt bringing TANC up at this (League of Cities) meeting could create an awkwardness with the public meetings we had scheduled," Tippin said.

The League likely will discuss TANC anyway and hold its divisional business meeting in another city, Tippin said.

Of the five TANC members planning the new power line, Redding has by far the smallest financial stake. The major players are the Sacramento Municipal Utility District, Silicon Valley Power in Santa Clara, the Modesto Irrigation District and the Turlock Irrigation District.

The Redding City Council in February 2008 committed some $600,000 to planning the power line.

The council has yet to vote on whether the city will help build the line - an investment currently estimated at $45 million.

This might go through my parents' front meadow. That is not cool. It would stretch down the only agricultural land in their area of Lassen county. Stupid.

If the Bay Area wants power so bad they can elect to build energy power plants close to themselves and leave us out of it. They can utilize more of those idle wind mills around Fairfield and Tracy. Just think about all the timber they are willing to harvest in order to clear the path for power lines but scream, shout and vote us down when we want to harvest timber in order to save our forests from fire caused by lightning strikes to dead buggy timber they won't let us harvest now. To hell with them, maybe if they hurt bad enough for power they'll finally get in line with the rest of us reasonable folk who believe nuclear power like Europe and Japan have been using so long is a viable alternative to coal fired power plants which throw tons of pollution including radiation into the atmosphere. Most folks don't realize that coal fired power plants have emitted tons more radiation than any nuclear plant incident we have ever had. Before someone replies that nuclear waste is unsafe and questions how one may store it safely consider the fact that other countries have sterling safety records concerning transportation and storage of spent nuclear waste. If they can do it so can we. We just have to use our noodles and trounce the radicaLS who screech about possible accidental spills if a railcar is derailed in an urban area. It's time to let the facts speak for themselves. The department of energy long ago hauled our transport containers over 10,000 feet into the air and dropped them on reinforced pads of concrete and steel. They did it in repeated testing and never breached a single container. They were full of inert material of the same weight and density as the nuclear waste we'll need to store. Come on folks lets get with it, times a wastin. As I under-stand it Redding is using power from a coal fired power plant outside of our area. I wonder how that makes the folks who live down wind from those power plants feel about us. Perhaps they're giving us the finger but we're too far away to see it. Well, I'll bet they feel just like we do about having Nancy Pelosi's constituents’ needs encroaching on our lovely area. We all need to consider nuclear power because it would solve our water supply problems, also. When power costs come down the desalination of sea water is a good prospect. We should continue to develop wind, solar, geothermal, tidal, water and more efficient life styles through better insulation and reduced power usage through simple things like LED light bulbs. That’s my story and I’m stickin to it.

Vast amounts of money are set aside to deal with Safety issues and challenges regarding Nuclear power...Ask yourself, Why this is...

Safe Nuclear, Clean Coal and BP means Beyond Petroleum...RIGHT.

I am very concerned that the manager of REU, Mr. Paul Hauser sits on the
board of TANC and backroom deals with TANC, which must have been easily done, considering this Conflict of Interest, have taken place. Mr. Hauser needs to step down from one of these jobs...

He should pick who he works for, and I believe he already has...It is not in the best interest of the people of the community of Redding, that Mr. Hauser remain at his position as Manager of REU.

This project makes no sense what so ever. I'm glad to see that people are taken an interest into what is happening up here.I was thinking where am I going to live if this goes thru and then I was like ahhhh.....I know we can just camp out on Paul Hauser's front lawn until we get back on our feet and find a safe place to live,I'm sure he wouldn't mind as long as my tent is money green.

Had to laugh when mention is mad of hydropower, as you know the greenies are getting ready to remove four hydroelectric dams on the Klamath River with dams on the American, and Sacramento not far behind. That coupled with the fact that eastern Lassen is a poor site for solar or wind make this thing a joke. Guess that if they can push it thru the can bring in that dirty coal power from out of state.

The most incredible aspect of this entire project is how completely uninformed the individuals are that are pushing the project. The people fighting for their homes, their communities and the future of our planet, have gone whole heart into understanding what this project is about. The people from TANC, SMUD, REU and the Redding City Council have all demonstrated they cannot answer the many questions they should know about this project. I hope the Cascade Theater will be packed to the walls with "we the people" as our public officials answer, or not answer, our questions about exactly what they have planned for our money and our future.

They have not told us where the power is coming from other than hydro from the northwest. What hydro project in the northwest? What other power source in California? They must have a plan; lets hear it!
Why does the power line only go to Lassen County near the Nevada boarder and not farther north if we are to get power from the northwest.
They are building coal plants in Nevada posted by R. Hunt.
Something is still fishy here.

you will go to the meetings and you will listen to the rhetoric and you will ask questions and YOU WILL BE TOLD NOTHING! went thru this in '82 with tanc thru oak run, they will not answer questions and they will threaten landowners with eminent domain and they will not buy out homes and land. they will pay a fixed amount for the 1000'swath thru your land and then clear cut it. ever get near those 500 kw lines and hear them sizzle? try it and then ask, "can that possibly be good for man or beast". the tanc line is a done's a government project and they will be bringing in coal produced electricity from idaho, montana,'s a big land grab in the name of the green energy crap....STILL LIKE BIG GOVERNMENT RUNNING YOU LIFE?

I believe a lot of what ManyPonies has written here is right on. I know of 10 coal mining projects in the works in Utah, Idaho, and Montana and Colorado already has em and no doubt is expanding.

The Power Brokers have grabbed these resources and began to develop them and now expect the tax payer and rate payers to pay to move THEIR Poison, Polluted, Power to the Metro areas that are willing to pay for it.

What do we get for our trouble...Power Lines and the ill effects, and there ARE ILL EFFECTS in addition to being
ugly, displacing many homeowners and devaluing properties
all around them, they are not healthy to live under or near. THANKS FOR THE VISIT_Green Earl
