Huron County Pushes Stop Button on Wind Development http://t.co/otLeG0tP6Z

Hey, former Sen. Howard Walker? Screw you.
Nice to see that “Screw you” Walker, hasn’t let his time in Lansing change who he is.
Capitol Confidential asked Sen. Walker what he thought the chances were that his bills would move through the Legislature this year.
“Well, we have very few session days left, but we also have the lame duck session,” Sen. Walker said. “With so few session days you really couldn’t say for sure that it would move – on the other hand, when there’s a lame duck session, you really couldn’t say for sure that it wouldn’t.”
Capitol Confidential asked Sen. Walker about a possible connection between the bills and Marty Lagina, CEO and founder of Heritage Sustainable Energy, which operates industrial wind plants in Northern Michigan.
“I’ve known Marty Lagina a long time,” Sen. Walker said. “He and I worked together on oil and gas development in the late 1970s. Marty has discussed the lawsuit situation with me. I believe this legislation might be a way to address the issue.”
This costly, dirt worshiping cult religion of Green Energy nonsense just never ends.
Conveniently, the bigger power concerns in the state capitulated to ridiculous 10% energy mandates during the Granholm administration.
In 2012, an even MORE ridiculous 25×25 requirement was promoted (and failed) as a constitutional amendment, in a state which has a monstrous electricity appetite as a leader in manufacturing. Now as the legislature approaches the crossroads of [Oh gosh we can’t meet the 10%!] and [What the hell happened to electricity prices?] in Michigan, another 35% ‘mandate’ pusher shows up with a ‘conservative’ emphasis and the useful idiots who have already signed on.
As soon as Michigan State Representative Mike Shirkey announced a solid-as-steel return to electricity competition in our state, the rust of cronyism began eating away at the plan. Snyder stepped up the call for increased renewable energy in the midst of the current mandate meltdown, and a new shadow group was formed with friendly ‘conservative’ faces to front it. (see useful idiot mention above)
Sometimes however, its worth looking to other experts who have a different take on such things.
Are the mandates even legal?
Thanks to the TB912, and Dining Room productions for another useful and informative video.
And On a related note: Cap Con today, has another take on this.
