Don't let our local government participate in the green energy bubble.
Our government has mandated the use of solar and wind despite their lack of economic feasibility. Wind and solar power would not exist in the U.S. if not for the government using taxpayer dollars to subsidize them because our traditional sources of power are too cheap.
Many will point to the use of windmills in Europe. Europe's traditional power sources are higher than ours and look at what green energy has did to their economy. Spain's finance minister calculated for every green job created they lose two in the private sector which has led Spain into near 25 percent unemployment.
Michigan is huge in the wind and solar industry as is California and look how well it has helped their economies.
We now know man-made and possibly natural global warming has been proved to be a hoax and so then is the impetus for solar and wind energy.
Will the Sandusky City Schools wind turbine save the school money? Yes, it will. This is only because the government has mandated it so. It will cost all of us in the form of higher taxes.
People blinded by fundamental environmentalism or profits are now hailing the windmill and want to teach of its benefits.
When the bubble bursts these windmills will be monuments to special interests and radical environmentalism's ability to impose their will upon a people. These windmills should be used to teach school children the abuse of power of the government .
I urge you to look at history and the Carter years and see how identical policies helped to wreck a nation. Stand up and be part of the solution and not part of the problem.
