Recent Energy and Environmental News

For the full version of the latest Energy & Environmental Newsletter, please click here…  To review some of the highlights, see below.

To accommodate the diversity of interesting material, the Newsletter articles are subdivided into eleven (11) categories (see below).

My vote for the most outstanding development this cycle is that Thursday night it was reported that three* NYS Health organizations officially advocated that industrial wind turbines be placed no closer to homes than 1.5 miles, and be limited to a maximum of 35 dBA noise! Watch this very short video.

*(The Chautauqua County Board of Health, and the Western New York Health Alliance, and the NYS Association of County Health Officials!)

There were also several other superior articles, including: (short video) True Costs of Renewables – the Texas LessonRestore Electricity Market Integrity to Ensure Grid ReliabilitySocialism/Communism: Two Sides of the Same Coin; (short video) “I Am the Majority” Mark RobinsonScientists: Dishonest or Afraid?Climate science has died: the effects will be bigClimate Extremism in the Age of DisinformationClimate change: On media perceptions and misperceptionsWhy climate skeptics will lose — and how they can win.

Note 1: We recommend reading the Newsletter on your computer, not your phone, as some documents (e.g. PDFs) are much easier to read on a large computer screen… We’ve tried to use common fonts, etc. to minimize display issues.

Note 2: Originally this was a monthly Newsletter. However, as pertinent material proliferated, it has been issued more frequently. As a guideline once we collect a hundred worthwhile articles, a new Newsletter will be issued on the following Monday. Recently this has resulted in a once every three weeks frequency — and occasionally once every two weeks.

Note 3: Our intention is to put some balance into what most people see from the mainstream media about energy, environmental and education issues… As always, please pass the Newsletter on to open-minded citizens, and link to it on your social media sites. If there are others who you think would benefit from being on our Energy & Environmental email list, please let me know. If at any time you’d like to be taken off this list, simply send me an email saying that.

Note 4: This Newsletter is intended to supplement the material on our website, For wind warriors, the most important page there is the Winning page.

Note 5: I am not an attorney, so no material appearing in any of the Newsletters (or the website) should be construed as giving legal advice. My recommendation has always been: consult a competent licensed attorney when you are involved with legal issues.
