We can not sell out our Environment for jobs. After all, there is more to life than money


Conservative Thinktanks Launch Campaign to Turn Americans Against Wind Energy

Documents show for the first time that local anti-wind groups are co-ordinating and working with national fossil-fuel funded advocacy groups to wreck the wind industry. 
A network of ultra-conservative groups is ramping up an offensive on multiple fronts to turn the American public against wind farms and Barack Obama's energy agenda.
A number of rightwing organisations, including Americans for Prosperity, which is funded by the billionaire Koch brothers, are attacking Obama for his support for solar and wind power. The American Legislative Exchange Council (Alec), which also has financial links to the Kochs, has drafted bills to overturn state laws promoting wind energy. . . .
Once again, we must follow the money trail, right now, the siren call of $MONEY$ is in control. By the time, there is enough physical evidence that Global Warming or Global Climate Change had happened it will be too late to save cities and lives. We need to heed the call of the True Scientists and not those who are paid off to tell us what their puppet masters tell them to tell us.
OH! HOW I MISS THE GOOD OLD DAYS WHEN BOTH SIDES TOOK A TIME OUT BETWEEN ELECTIONS AND WE VOTERS COULD GO BACK TO HAVING A LIFE--THANKS TO THE SUPREME COURT OPENING THE DOOR TO MORE MONEY AND 'BIG BUSINESS' HAVING THE MOST TO SPEND--CAMPAIGN SEASON WAS NON-STOP THIS YEAR. THIS IS WHY WE INDEPENDENTS NEED BEYOND WORDS AND MEASURE TO UNITE WITH THE DEMOCRATS, WHO DID TAKE A TIME OUT BETWEEN ELECTIONS.

IS THIS NOT EVEN MORE EVIDENCE THAT THE OIL INDUSTRY DOES NOT NEED NOR DESERVE ALL THE TAX CREDITS THAT THEY ARE RECEIVING. After all, many of us in Ohio are already all to familiar with the 'American for Prosperity' from all their attack ads that run over and over on broadcast television, during the local news, along with those paid by the United States Chamber of Commerce, both Right-Wing Groups have been running ads non-stop, which are designed to convince Ohio Voters that their false accusations are 'the truth'--as the saying goes--repeat the same lie often enough then it becomes the 'Truth' or rather you have conned the people into believing it.


Consider these flash-points as signals that we are entering an era of intensified conflict over energy.

IF only we put a fraction of our energy in advance alternative-reusable energy sources instead of trying to save fossil fuels, which are almost gone anyway and which are the sources of the excess of Carbon in the atmosphere that is the Cause of Global Climate Change that will destroy us and the future of our World.
