I’m just shocked, shocked I tell you, that a group of self interested parties has found municipalization the electric utility to be “feasible”.
If a group of people that just happened to work for ExxonMobile or Blue Mountain Energy (coal) or Peabody Energy (coal) came up with a model that showed that coal was far cheaper than a combination of natural gas, renewable energy (wind and solar) to power our needed electricity, there would be OUTRAGE among the environmental weenies. Marches in the streets, effigies burned at the stake.
However, when those whose livelihood is dependent upon “green energy”, coupled with government bureaucrats that see an annual stream of $121 million passing by without their DIRECT CONTROL, produces a “model” that “proves” municipalization feasible, the Camera trumpets their findings on the front page of the paper.
No doubt, they used a model developed by the same self interested bureaucrats who created the models that “prove” man made global warming.
It is truly an upside down world, at least here in Boulder
