Thank you for your clear and comprehensive article on the woefully inadequate plan for 101. We are rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic with blinders on.

Re: “'A Must'

Thanks Ellen and Ryan, for the support for the wind project. There are many lies that the anti wind people use, here is one.
Wind takes about 6-8 months to pay off the energy/carbon too make the unit including installation and shipping. Here is but one sourced report as to energy payback.…
And the new machines use less materials per watt making them more energy efficient, reducing their co2 content and payback time from even that 6 months.

Wind works.

Re: “'A Must'

I really wish people would stop uncritically posting links to climate-denying front groups and websites that ultimately link back to the Koch brothers and their circle of influence. These anti-wind sites are not run by grassroots environmentally concerned people; they are run by climate deniers and people who benefit from the fossil fuel status quo.

For example, is run by climate deniers with links to Master Resource:…

And what is the Master Resource blog, which Adam Canter cited several times in his argument on LCO against the wind farm? This will give you an idea:…

Lisa Linowes and the Wind Action site:……

And who is behind "Watts Up With That"?

Etc, etc, etc...

Re: “Graphene: The Future of Desalination?

Yes, graphene is the key to the future of desalination. Products are currently on the market as well as in development for this very use. I encourage you to follow the news online by The National Graphene Association, to see recent updates and swift advances in water filtration. Graphene is the finest sieve in the world, so thorough it can even remove the color from whiskey! The proof was shown at the American Graphene Summit in Washington, DC in May, and may be viewed on the association website

Re: “'A Must'

Be careful what you wish for. Huge 600 foot tall Industrial Wind Turbines are a moneymaker for absentee land owners and billionaire investors. They are a disaster for bats, birds, insects, forests, groundwater, and people who have the misfortune to be living up to twenty miles away. The carbon dioxide released building and installing them is huge and not offset by the electricity produced for ten years. Based on decades of experience around the world they are not a solution. Rooftop solar is decentralized, unobtrusive, quiet, doesn't kill the local flora and fauna, makes local jobs, is user friendly, neighbor friendly, and best of all it gets paid off and your electric bill goes down to almost zero.

Re: “31 Points About Mass Shootings

Just a quick question: When's the last time you read about a knife-wielding suspect stabbing 36 people in 30 seconds? Sure, people are going to be violent. But it's the availability of military style weapons that allows a violent person in the United States to shoot dozens of people in half a minute. In less time than it took me to write this, a man in Dayton killed nine people and wounded 27 others.

Re: “31 Points About Mass Shootings

It has been my contention for some time that media might have a positive influence if someone would start a campaign reaching out to those disaffected dangerous folks letting them know they are actually ill. No, it would not stop all the violence, but if it prevented one attack that would be worth the effort. Tell the guy sitting in his basement tweaking his weaponry, imagining himself as a cultural hero striking back at his oppressors that he needs serious help and his actions will end badly. Once in a while it might prevent an attack from ever occurring and therefore save not only his victims, but himself as well. It is something that can be enacted without legislation, permission, or rancor from any political group. (any that opposed it would paint themselves as mentally ill, letting us know who they are.) It should be inexpensive and popular. The message is simple and obvious. "Wanting to hurt people you do not know is sick, and needs to be treated."

Re: “31 Points About Mass Shootings

I have issues with this because people can us other means of hurting someone AKA stabbings.

Re: “Myth of the Invisible Ships

in 1998 I was coming out of a busy grocery store in the evening and saw a spaceship above the gas station across the street I stood in the doorway yelling "what the heck is that 'what the heck is that'. And I'm pointing at it and nobody else seems to notice it but me . I watched as IT seemed to notice me and started to drift across the street .I followed it I wantched as it changeed Shape and disappear into the sky. To this day I have no idea why nobody else seemed to notice it .When I look back on it now I think that because of that is perhaps the reason that today I see so many of them is it possible that the brain only recognizes things it's already aware of? Are we conditioned that way? I don't know. Just food for thought . Also I've captured some on camera some that I could not see but the camera could .

Re: “Myth of the Invisible Ships

In 1998 I was exiting a busy supermarket in New Mexico . I stepped out of the entrance and heard a creeking sound of something heavy and metal. I looked in the direction of the sound. Across the street from the store was a gas station and much to my suprise was a large spaceship it hoovered right above the gas station by just a few feet . I stood in the doorway of the store POINTING and screaming "what the f... Is that?" Over and over I yelled out but NOBODY else seemed to be looking I have no idea how the people around could ignore the camotion I was causing . STILL to this day I wonder.The ship NOTICED me and began to move I chased it and watched it take off . I then went to my boyfriend's house and told him what I saw .when he heard my discription of how it sounded he said " I heard that.I just didn't look up" . I now live in Texas but have seen many more I watched one fly right by me at the park the NOBODY else seemed to see .I absolutely think that I can see them because of having allready saw one . Its my theory . Believe it or not I truly want others to share these expirences with .Another interesting point is that I have captured some on camera some that my EYES could NOT see but the CAMERA could, what do you think about that? Could it be that the camera sees More than we do because it has no conchince and no objection? This is 100 % true .

Re: “31 Points About Mass Shootings

32. This violence, racism, white supremacy and their protests would quickly return to obscurity if adherents had access to living wage jobs.

How do we so quickly forget the rise of Nazism from people's economic desperation in the 1930's?

Like the forehead cast-markings (and violence) in India/Pakistan, visit one of America's numerous dollar stores, discount groceries, pawn shops, rent-to-own, or Walmart and look closely at American's teeth.
