SEC investigating GE charge; company posts $10 billion loss U.S. securities regulators are probing a massive insurance charge recently announced by General Electric Co , the latest blow to the nation's largest industrial conglomerate as it struggles to reverse steep declines in some of its units and is looking to sell off $20 billion of assets.

#NewYork's latest Power Play: "the state Public Service Commission’s 2016 Clean Energy Standard ordered utilities and anyone getting power directly from the grid to begin buying renewable energy credits (RECs), a mechanism by which renewable generators could remain profitable while selling electricity into the grid at a loss. That heavy-handed approach, by which the state puts up the capital and then makes people buy the product, still isn’t delivering the desired results... Governor Andrew Cuomo’s criticism of New York’s #renewableenergy spending in his written 2013 State of the State message still holds true: “despite all of this spending, NYS is not on track to achieve its clean energy goals.”" NY’s latest power play by Kenneth Girardin | January 26, 2018 | NY Torch Renewable energy companies aren’t building the windmills and solar panels Governor Andrew Cuomo hoped for when he pledged in 2015 to have 50 percent of the state’s electricity come from renewables by 2030.

#NewYork's 1st #ArticleX Siting Board hearing was held in the Town of #Cassadaga Wednesday, 1/17/18. The Administrative law judge that was overseeing the approval of the wind factory in Cassadaga said they approved it because the "project was not likely to affect the character of the community"?!? Smoke another one dude! Somerset Supervisor @danEngert: "Siting board confirms unwillingness to overrule local laws" Yesterday (Jan. 17) the Article 10 Siting Board approved construction of the 125 megawatt Cassadaga Wind Project in Chautauqua County. Although Big Wind may have won in Cassadaga, comments madehttp://

From the Files (Sadly, the Batavia Daily News deleted their online history): Critical Thinking is the antithesis of 'standing firm' Editor, I was rather perplexed when I read the Daily's 10/29/09 editorial, "Balanced education", regarding the Warsaw 8th grade field trip to the Sheldon industrial wind installation. The editor obviously misinterpreted the gist of my meeting with the school board (regarding a field trip that had already occurred) when he reported the Board was right to "stand firm". The purpose of my visit with the Warsaw School Board was to discuss critical thinking in the classroom, which can only happen when ALL pertinent information is available and considered. Critical thinking is the antithesis of "standing firm" - which can mean close-minded. To their credit, the Warsaw School Board was very open and receptive to the information I brought to share with them and the 8th Grade school teacher, which included: 1.) NYS Citizens' Questions Document: 2.) DVD copies of Physicist John Droz's 9/29/09 Energy Presentation 3.) the summary I wrote of Mr. Droz's presentation for the newspapers (yet to be published in the Daily News) 4.) articles by environmentalists, energy specialists, economists, etc. which can be found on,, and Unfortunately, it's no surprise folks are wondering if both sides of the industrial wind issue are being heard when there are many examples to illustrate the fact that they are not. For instance, on September 29, 2009, a FREE, scientifically-based energy presentation by Physicist John Droz was offered at The Stage in Warsaw. It was advertised for weeks in advance. We invited every Supervisor in Wyoming County, at least six local newspapers (including the Daily News), and local school officials. Yet, not one representative of any of them attended. Is it any wonder many don't believe our children are getting the real story about industrial wind technology when those in community leadership positions and the news media choose to avoid opportunities to learn more about the most divisive issue to ever hit our area -- which many of our local elections were based upon this year? Thus my reason for taking the information to the school board - to make sure the 8th grade teacher and students had access to it. Superintendent Knowles and the school board graciously allowed me the opportunity to speak with them, accepting the information I provided, and agreeing to pass it on to the 8th grade teacher. I trusted that Superintendent Knowles would follow through on his promise, and thanked all for the courtesy of allowing me the opportunity to address the Board. In the interest of full disclosure, I did let the Board know that I am both a taxpayer and NYS-certified Health Science educator myself, who has been researching the industrial wind issue for nearly five years. As such, it concerns me that our tax dollars were used to bus our children out to a commercial enterprise (an industrial wind installation) to get a "science" lesson from self-serving salesmen who manned the booths the children were required to go through. There are laws against soliciting, so I don't understand how it somehow becomes acceptable to subject our children to such blatant propaganda during school hours. In a follow-up call to Superintendent Knowles, I relayed to him the fact that there are many local residents who have been negatively affected by the siting of industrial wind turbines too close to their homes. I also let him know that the attorney representing many of these residents offered to come in and speak with the class to ensure that they understood the nature of all these problems with wind. They have yet to accept this offer. Perhaps, instead of sending young, impressionable minds into the middle of a politically-divisive issue where they're ripe for the pickin' by shrewd salesmen, our science teachers might consider posing questions on how an intermittent, highly-volatile power source could power anything in a society utterly dependent upon reliable, precision power performance? Math teachers could join the discussion by giving their students the formula for converting wind speed into electrical energy, which is based upon the cube of the wind speed, in order to show the actual skittering nature of wind energy. History teachers could explain why steam-powered craft replaced the elegant clipper ships 200 years ago, and why the Dutch no longer use their lovely small windmills to reclaim the land from the sea. Social Studies teachers could have students research where in the world coal plants have closed, or CO2 emissions have been reduced thanks to wind power. Do your own research. Deploy critical thinking. Until people examine ALL the pertinent information, limited liability wind corporations will continue to exploit us, our children, and our state and country - at taxpayer and ratepayer expense. Each of us should be demanding more informed answers from our elected officials to the NYS Citizens' Questions ( before we allow our priceless NYS countrysides and quality of life to be destroyed -- all for an ineffectual energy technology which furthers only civil discord while devastating the very environment they claim they wish to save.

Cassadaga Wind Article 10 Siting Board Hearing - Live streaming from Albany Jan 17

Industrial Wind is A NET LOSER - Economically, Environmentally, Technically, and Civilly: **** Here’s a sold little wrap-up on the great wind power fraud from Mary Kay Barton – it’s so clear and thumpingly sound for STT to add, would only detract. Hats off, Mary. Over …

"There were provisions in both the House and Senate Tax Reform Bills that would have curtailed it [the Wind Production Tax Credit]. Remember, the PTC was started in 1992, introduced by Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, as a “temporary” subsidy to get the wind energy industry on its feet. Now, 26 years and $176 BILLION in taxpayer subsidies later, it seems it’s still not on its feet.... At what cost? Federal taxpayer subsidies for wind energy are predicted to cost $23.7 billion between 2016 and 2020. Do the math. Each job costs the taxpayer $474,000. Does that make sense? It does for some. Next Era Energy, the world’s biggest producer of wind energy didn’t pay federal income tax from 2008 to 2015. Instead, they received a net credit of $313 million. Mid-American Energy (Warren Buffet) received $249 million in federal tax credits last year and $5.5 billion in tax credits and subsidies from wind energy, to date. Buffet is now building another 1,000 turbines over the next couple years to add to his 2020 turbines he owns now. According to, in the election cycles 2016-2018 (to date) Senator John Thune received $130,500 and Rep. Kristi Noem $5,000 from Next Era Energy. Sen. Mike Rounds received $68,600 from Berkshire Hathaway and $41,500 from Next Era..... (Take note of the crony-corruptocrats names who are taking money from Big Wind developers and VOTE THE BUMS OUT!) Wind energy is the biggest example of crony capitalism in our lifetime. Wind turbines are only “subsidy meters,” nothing else. It’s sad to see our state and rural living destroyed for the financial gain of multi-national corporations, lobbyists and politicians." Why the recent ‘hype’ for wind energy?
