You may have read some of the fabricated fantasy features by such illustrious outlets as the Guardian — and then picked up by some others in the “You lie and I’ll swear to it” school of journalism. It’s fascinating to see how some “news” is generated and propagated!

The basis for this “conspiracy investigation” is likely explained here: the wind lobbyists are specifically targeting groups who are effectively opposing their efforts to extend their stay at the public trough. That’s us, so this is a badge of honor!

This is a summary of the situation from a DC attendee, and here is another.

In summary, the reality is that:

A cross-section of 20 US citizens (Democrats and Republicans), met for two days in Washington DC in early February, at their own expense. No organizations were invited or were involved. These citizens discussed ideas about how to bring about less expensive, more effective science-based energy policies. For shame!

I have received numerous supportive emails, and only one negative response. This publicity gives us an unprecedented opportunity to publicly discuss what we really are all about: promoting science-based energy and environmental policies.

The final schedule was just published for next week’s Heartland Conference. I will be there talking about wind energy (Panel 8).
