Despite the recent political changes in the US, our proposed national energy slogan remains the same: “All of the Sensible” (in contrast to the absurd “All of the Above”). Please pass it on. US citizens should make sure to get up-to-speed with what is on our PTCFacts.Info pages as that issue is still unresolved and very hot.
Please sign up and comment on this new social media site that we have setup as part of our campaign against the wind PTC.

Per the note I sent out before, I would strongly encourage you to watch Dr. Cal Beisner’s presentation recently given to a religious organization (go here, and skip to 53 minutes where it begins). To subscribe to a newsletter that examines energy and environmental issues from a Judeo-Christian perspective, email Dr. Beisner.
