This is the latest Energy Related newsletter from John Droz.

The election of Donald Trump (along with the Republican Congressional majority) may be the good news that science based energy advocates (e.g. wind warriors) may have been waiting for – for years now. For example, there is a good chance that the wind energy PTC (Production Tax Credit) will be terminated.

Final Thoughts

Our proposed national energy slogan is “All of the Sensible” (in contrast to the absurd “All of the Above”). Once legislators have grasped that concept, the foolishness of the “leveling the playing field” idea also becomes apparent. (Should the 18-wheeler trucks and golf cart playing field be leveled?) Additionally we should be using the term “unreliables” when speaking of renewables. Please pass these on.


Please pass this information on to other open-minded, science-oriented people.

Thank you for your support.
