By: Diane Benjamin Alderman Mollie Ward wants the City of Bloomington to stop Climate Change! She made this statement Monday night right after Tim Gleason claimed most insurance claims with the City because of the June storm will be denied. Mollie must have missed the Public Comments from Eastgate residents stating they have been dealing […]

Rivian deliveries are now delayed until July 1st: https://www.autoweek.com/news/green-cars/a36556537/rumor-rivian-r1t-pickup-delayed/ EPA is using fictitious data to claim Global Warming: https://climaterealism.com/2021/05/epas-new-climate-change-indicators-publication-misleads-on-heatwaves/ WEEK TV has a story on Wednesday night’s District 87 School Board meeting, unfortunately no video of the parents speaking but they are in the story: https://week.com/2021/05/26/district-87-parents-voice-concerns-over-covid-rules-and-curriculum-focus/

Below are the results of a poll conducted by Rasmussen and the Heartland Institute. Don’t bother commenting if you are indoctrinated, you need better media.

Dispelling the uninformed

By: Diane Benjamin A LONG comment was left to today’s Earth Day story that I didn’t post. Below is just the first lines and proof this person doesn’t care about facts, I left their typo: China is at the forefront of mitigating global warming. Apparently America’s exceptionalism means we blame other countries fro our lack […]

Do electric buses work in the cold?

By:  Diane Benjamin In Indianapolis their electric buses started losing the charge when the temperature got below 50 degrees! See this story:  https://www.theindychannel.com//indygo-electric-buses-having-battery-problems-cant-handle-the-cold Excerpts from TODAY’s story: INDIANAPOLIS — The IndyGo electric buses are already showing signs of trouble as the temperatures plunge.

Solar panels?

By:  Diane Benjamin Today I received an email from Habitat for Humanity with this included: Did you know all the people in California who invested their money in solar panels still didn’t have power when PG&E shut off power?  No Tesla charging, no lights, nothing! https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-10-10/californians-learning-that-solar-panels-don-t-work-in-blackouts Might be worth asking questions before you spend a […]

Climate Change Question

By:  Diane Benjamin Hey, it’s Friday.  Time to have some fun.  Emails received by FOIA. Remember when the US Conference of Mayors was held in Hawaii?  The same people lecturing and taxing to save the environment flew across an ocean to attend.  Mayor Koos attended the Climate Summit held right before it. Obviously Climate Change […]

Not so Green

By:  Diane Benjamin Know what that dark spot is?  Long time readers will:  OIL. This turbine is east of the Leroy-Lexington blacktop just south of Route 9.  Usually they keep the ones along busy roads clean, the ones with less traffic going by are worse. Even Green technology needs oil.  I wonder if AOC knows? […]

Bloomington: What’s your electric rate?

By:  Diane Benjamin The latest case for limited government: Bloomington talked residents into electric aggregation in 2013.  It was meant to save people money by contracting for lower electricity rates by buying in bulk. According to the City website the contract negotiated for you expired almost a year ago: Source:  http://www.cityblm.org/government/city-council/municipal-electric-aggregation If you click on the […]

Driving must end!

By:  Diane Benjamin Guess where this statement is: Even with insurance, gas, oil changes, and new tires every 2-3 years – anybody spend $8000 on maintenance a year?  “AAA” looks like a link, it doesn’t work. This statement is on a website called GoodToGoMclean.org It should be obvious who sponsors it, the guys with priorities […]

Preaching Socialism

By:  Diane Benjamin Illinois People’s action was at the Sugar Creek Art Festival spreading socialism, note they target the young who don’t know that socialism kills: One item on the sign is 100% renewable energy.  Evidently they don’t know the wind doesn’t always blow and the sun doesn’t always shine.  Creating batteries to store energy […]

More Jenn Carrillo

By: Diane Benjamin Jenn has new comments on Facebook this morning claiming she is completely non-violent.  Everything not in quotes are Jenn’s words.  This is non-violent? Below are the parts of the article Jenn didn’t quote.  “this man” is President Trump.    https://splinternews.com/this-is-just-the-beginning-1827099100 The U.S. had thousands of domestic bombings per year in the early 1970s.

Climate Change Scam

Sorry, reading the wrong month By:  Diane Benjamin Yes, it’s been really hot!  Media thought we might break a record yesterday.  What was the record yesterday?  94 degrees What the media often fails to tell you is what year that record was set.  Instead they spew Global Warming or Climate Change unsubstantiated statements and demand […]

Recycling: Government FAIL!

By:  Diane Benjamin McLean County, Bloomington, and Normal all passed a recycling ordinance that could lead to MANDATORY recycling, shortly after Normal decided they don’t have the money to pay for drop off sites:   https://blnnews.com/2018/03/02/normal-crashing/ Midwest Fiber supposedly agreed to operate these drop off sites: It looks like there is NO profit in recycling because […]

Ideology means no choices for you

By:  Diane Benjamin The Bloomington City Council spent almost an hour discussing why citizens shouldn’t be allowed to choose the lowest cost electricity under Municipal Aggregation.  The final vote was 7-2 with Aldermen Sage and Mathy against limiting your rights.  The rest of the Council voted with one finger pointed directly at you. Even with […]

Pantagraph: Facts matter

By:  Diane Benjamin Today the local rag has a story extolling the greatness of the Heartland Turbine.  Maybe they got their info from Heartland, maybe they shouldn’t have.  Their story says 23,000 Megawatts have been generated – in 5 years.  That’s 4,600 MW a year.  Now convert that to Kilowatt hours so their story and […]

Green isn’t really green

By:  Diane Benjamin The pictures below were all taken on June 2, 2017 east of Ellsworth, Il. In case you don’t know, wind turbines must have a backup system (FOSSIL FUELS!) because turbines aren’t capable of producing steady electricity.  The wind doesn’t always blow or it blows too hard.  Meanwhile, fossils fuels pollute more because […]

Not so GREEN

By:  Diane Benjamin If you still think turbines are green technology that will save the world – GROW UP. The BLACK is oil.  It takes a LOT of oil to make pretend green.  When not maintained, oil is thrown all over the ground beneath them.   I could post many stories about wind – start […]

More on the Global Warming scam

Two articles destroy the Global Warming Myth:   http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-02-03/un-official-admits-global-warming-agenda-really-about-destroying-capitalism Excerpt: A shocking statement was made by a United Nations official Christiana Figueres at a news conference in Brussels.

McLean County: Beware of Invenergy!

By:  Diane Benjamin From the Edgar County Watchdogs website:  http://edgarcountywatchdogs.com/2016/10/invenergys-wind-farm-joins-wall-of-shame/ InvEnergy owes Champaign County $480,298 in unpaid taxes.

Turbines: County went for money

By:  Diane Benjamin Yesterday the McLean County Board passed a new Wind Farm ordinance that benefits developers over people. Livingston County had a referendum on their last ballot asking whether a 1600 feet setback was enough, the voters there said NO. McLean’s ordinance is a measly 1500 feet from any occupied home – not the […]
