The truth about 97% agree

By:  Diane Benjamin Lisa Madigan signed up to start prosecuting corporations who deny climate change.  That’s not surprising since she rarely prosecutes corrupt politicians and instead prosecutes businesses.  She needs to see the video below, but most likely facts don’t matter.  They don’t to some ISU professors! What exactly do 97% of climate change scientist […]

The Hoax takes a new low!

Wind: What property owners need to know

By:  Diane Benjamin If you know anyone being approached by a Wind Farm company now – get this to them.  These companies will attempt to get landowners to sign contracts even before a wind farm is approved!  Make sure they DON’T sign without knowing the facts!  These companies are not above saying the neighbors have […]

How to get a Wind Farm approved?

By:  Diane Benjamin The Logan County Board had rejected plans for a Wind Farm by a company named Relight.  That didn’t stop them from trying again.  Relight is an Italian company, gee I wonder why they want to build here.  It can’t have anything to do with Europe abandoning wind and the US handing out […]

Update: Climate facts and deniers

Here’s another article to consider:  http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2015/12/climate-change-and-the-lessons-of-a-winter-storm.html I few days ago a banned person left a comment about climate change to this story:  https://blnnews.com/2015/12/26/vogel-you-make-my-writing-sooooo-easy/ This person has the honor of being the only person I have banned from commenting.  The IP address isn’t local, so I don’t take her seriously.  I banned her because having an […]

Another of the local clueless

By:  Diane Benjamin Want to know why Donald Trump is still high in the polls?  Read this WJBC forum commentary to see what the “establishment” thinks.  He’s not even close to the real reason, but it’s good for laughs.  This is exactly what the GOP thinks too – and it’s why the Trump attacks are […]

Not so Green Energy

By:  Diane Benjamin This turbine is on Leroy-Lexington black top, just south of Route 9.  All those black spots are fossil fuels! Livingston County will be voting again on a new wind farm.  A YES vote is a vote to kill birds and throw oil in fields.  A YES votes means tax payers will be […]

Global Warming? Sure

By: Diane Benjamin In the 70’s, the talking points were Global Cooling.  Then temperatures increased and the talking points went to Global Warming.  Then temperatures cooled again, so now it’s Climate Change. No the science isn’t settled.  No 90%+ scientists do not agree.  No, you can not trust people who profit from towing whatever line […]

Wind turbines need wind!

by:  Diane Benjamin Do you want to flip a switch and get light?  How about charge your cell phone?  How about the other 1000’s of things that take electricity, want those to work on demand? Wind and solar will never do that.  The wind doesn’t always blow or it blows too hard.  Last time I […]

Declare WAR on the Wind Industry!

Wind energy is a horrendous waste of time and money.  The federal tax subsidies alone cost America (that’s you, me and future generations who bear this debt load) TWELVE BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR.  That doesn’t include the cost of new high voltage transmission lines needed to deal with the big surges from fickle wind and […]

Church of Global Warming feels the heat

Climate Activists Put the Heat on Obama

This article is from the far left site The Nation.  Evidently Americans don’t mind paying twice as much for gas since Obama won re-election.  Do you mind paying more for all forms of energy?  Either take a stand now or pay later! “As visionary as Obama is, he is hamstrung by his pragmatism.” So says […]
