Thanks to Seth Handy, one of our terrific radio co-hosts (http://renewablenow.biz/peter-arpin-remewable-now.html) for sending us this terrific article from Renewable Energy World. This dovetails nicely with a recent radio show we recorded with Seth and experts discussing the Cape Wind project, stalled for so many years by similar tactics.
As you know, we keep a safe distance from politics. However, the base argument used by industrial giants to stall implementation of clean-air rules have, in our opinion grown stale and maddeningly misinformed. We recorded a show two weeks ago with an incredible financial expert/global investor/economist/ who has tracked accelerating legislation around environmental improvements, all of which had critics suggestion it would kill the economy, and his data shows beyond a reasonable doubt that those critics are wrong--going all the way back to Teddy Roosevelt and his push to preserve land into parks, the ROI on these bills has been great. We've seen just the opposite--steady improvements in both the economy and environment.
We'll run this piece over two days. Let us know what you think:
