Crazy Stuff on Michigan Ballot
Posted by Jeff Condon on October 9, 2012
A PROPOSAL TO AMEND THE STATE CONSTITUTION
TO ESTABLISH A STANDARD FOR RENEWABLE ENERGY
This proposal would:
Require electric utilities to provide at least 25% of their annual retail sales of electricity from renewable energy sources, which are wind, solar, biomass, and hydropower, by 2025.
Limit to not more than 1% per year electric utility rate increases charged to consumers only to achieve compliance with the renewable energy standard.
Allow annual extensions of the deadline to meet the 25% standard in order to prevent rate increases over the 1% limit.
Require the legislature to enact additional laws to encourage the use of Michigan made equipment and employment of Michigan residents.
Should this proposal be approved?
Envirowhackos want us to produce 25% of our power from things that don’t work. What’s more is that they want to incorporate the idiocy right into the State constitution. My guess is that the media propaganda about “renewable” energy has brainwashed the public into thinking that this is probably ok. What linguistic magic empowers the thinking that it will only add a little cost because the price increase is legislated in the bill?
Surprisingly they forgot to list potato batteries as one of the renewable sources. What is the problem? We know potato batteries can’t effectively replace combustibles either, so why aren’t they on the list?
Maybe they are potato racists.
