Hello Max and many friends--
I see the list is very much alive and that makes me very happy.
As some of you know, I've taken my obsession with nature on a reality path--
responding to the calls of our fellow creatures who cannot realize a reasonable
energy direction based on controlling run-away human waste and moving to energy
self-sufficiency and harmony.
For no more than than utilities want to us spend on high capacity transmission
expansion, we could have a very exciting, inspiring energy direction: These are
just a few of the projects just in the U.S. Midwest: http://tinyurl.com/kononug
If you have any experience with any transmission lines affecting any habitat,
urban or more remote, please take a few minutes to record your specific
observations for the Environmental Impact Statement regarding a proposed 170
mile, 345 kV transmission project with 150-180' towers engaging about 10,000
acres of natural and cultural resources in Wisconsin.
Make on line comments by July 15th at:
If you have images, graphs and other non text documentation, email me and I
will help you post them to the docket.
Start off citing your credentials and reason for providing input. Describe
specific experiences. Impacts on local tourism and local economies all over the
world are also applicable comment. Also personal energy steps you have taken
and gov/utility help realize them.
The organization I work with, SOUL of Wisconsin, has the support of the
nation's best "non transmission alternatives" engineers so 2014 will be a very
exciting year in our collective energy future. Billions and billions of our
dollars are at stake. Electric customers (ratepayers) are finally starting to
look past images of wind turbines to see that regional utility planning assumes
carbon emission increases. They see rising debt to wasteful power plants and
transmission even as energy use drops and they see way out: Shifting
investment to energy efficiency to send our energy dollars back to communities
lowering the operation costs of our homes, farms and businesses while creating
local jobs and slashing emissions faster and more cost effectively than any
other energy option. I think our creature friends would find this preferable,
even less noisy.
I'm proud to report that I'm still recording from my studio/house that requires
80% less power than when I last posted in 2011. As you can guess, I still
"type" too much, but at least with sun power much of the time.
Thank you for the years of exchanges on this list that are very very much at
the heart of my abilities to respond.
