Energy and Environmental Newsletter

John Droz, Jr.,  Physicist & Environmental Advocate

The latest Energy and Environmental Newsletter, is now online. 2015 is starting off on the right foot, as there is some REALLY good news this issue!

1- The best news in a long time is about the 12± year brawl to stop the ridiculous Cape Wind project. It finally seems to be fatally wounded, due to a combination of economic, legal and political matters. Kudos to those warriors who stuck with the fight, through thick and thin.

2- Also sensational news is the almost unanimous vote by the West Virginia state legislature to kill their RPS — the first state to actually do this. On that same note, this Reason Foundation Report came out blasting the inadequacies of such RPS mandates. And yet another report also came out on the same topic: How Lawmakers Can Lower Your Electric Bill.

3- The US Department of Defense filed a formal objection to a proposed Maryland wind project, claiming it was a threat to national security. To our knowledge this is the first time the DoD has been emboldened to take a firm stance against the "politically correct" wind energy charade. Hopefully the military will have similar courage in the future.

4- Dr. Robert Lackey gave an exceptional talk, about Scientists being biased. This is one of the most important issues of our times, and it is rare that it is spoken about so candidly. (Here is the preferred audio version.)

5- Dr. Curry's always thoughtful blog has a wonderfully insightful discussion about Charlie Hebdo, Climate Change & Free Speech.

6- And in a continuation of great news, I came across the Changing Minds website. I've never seen a site with so much exceptional Public Relations related information. As we are repeatedly reminded: the wind energy fight is ultimately a PR matter.

Here are some of the other key Energy related reports:

As always, please pass this on to open-minded citizens. If there are others who you think would benefit from being on our energy & environmental email list, please let me know. If at any time you'd like to be taken off the list, please let me know that too.
