Well Samhill, it has to come from somewhere. The gov. is subsidizing "bio" plants up here so they are absolutely slaughtering the already slaughtered forest to burn and send electricity down to S. New England because the Enviro Nuts have mandated they use a percentage of "green" energy. It is horrendous. And the wind farms are springing up all over ME and they are a huge boondoggle on the taxpayers and locals. Once again, mandates and subsidies are behind it. Say, lets build a nuclear plant to stop burning coal and trees.
Oops, forgot about all those pesky enviro nuts that hate nuclear and hate oil, and hate coal, and everything but warming your self on a rock in the sunshine, but have no solutions that work and do not create more damage then they mitigate.
