Please help us save Vermont!!!!  Qubec's Gaz Metro has bought Green Mountain Power and are trying to gain the legal access to flattening the tops of many of the Green Mountains - starting with the Lowell Mountains.  They are attempting to abort Act 250 - it will ruin forever the aquifers, mountain tops, Wildlife habitat - Bear, Moose, Catamount, beaver, deer, bats, songbirds, hawks - etc - and the beauty, rural character and tourism industry that people around the world depend on Vermont for . ... help us! 

Care 2 Petition: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/save-vermonts-green-mountains-save-the-lowell-mountains/  


Many well meaning 'green" minded people have been brainwashed to think that Hideous, Industrial, Wind Generators are the lesser of two evils when it comes to oil and nuclear versus green.  They think that destroying mountain tops is what we have to put up with.  It is NOT so!  We need local solutions - not corporations who have been proven to be going after the millions of dollars in Federal subsidies for their projects - knowing that when they fail they will get 100% reimbursement of all funds ventured . . so for one 200 million dollar investment they will recieve 58 million in subsidies AND then regain the money - - a much better investment than the stock market.  But our wildlife and mountains pay.

Germany offers a much better local solution to the being energy self sufficient.  They give 0 and 1 percent loans to farmers to purchase and install huge banks of solar panels that serve as shade for their livestock in the warmer months.  They also offer 6-7 cents per kilowatt of electricity that is produced and pumped into the grid.  (In Vermont the farmers get nothing for giving electric to the grid except a consumption credit - which means in cloudy or nightime where they may need electric from the grid they are credited for the amount of extra that they have produced.  AND despite tax credits - Farmers would have to spend huge amounts of money with punishing interest rates to purchase large grids)  In Germany they are able to pay their loans back in 4 - 5 years with the money they earn from producing the electricity AND then they are able to have a decent income on their investment from the electric produced over the rest of the 15 years of life of the grid.  It is a win/win situation - the citizens recieve their electric and LOCAL food production - - the farmers are supported . . AND there are no ugly towers that are causing Wind Turbine Illness, ruining the beauty and silence of the country that we need for our hearts/souls/minds/spirits - there is no bird kill, bat kill  . . . it is win win!  AND it is really green - not fake green that the old technology of the current 460 foot turbines that quit working in winter conditions are.  (Google Wind Spires for the new 30 foot technology that will NOT kill birds, is NOT an eye sore, IS efficient - and is not disasterous to the ecology of the place that they are placed)
