UNDERSTANDING GREEN ENERGY – the real costs and benefits for utility rate payers!

Green Earth


This week we will be revisiting the “fundamental transformation” of America’s electrical energy infrastructure with the stated goal of ending coal fired electrical generation by the Obama Administration and his expressed intent to replace it with much less reliable and more costly ”green” alternatives such as wind and solar. We will also discuss the significant reduction of hydroelectric power generation through nationwide dam destruction and removal efforts promoted by Big Green environmental groups lobbying Congress and Administrative Agencies with the stated purpose of restoring all streams and rivers in America to their pre-Columbian natural state, despite overwhelming evidence that supports hydroelectric as the most cost effective and reliable source for clean energy in existence.

America has historically had the cleanest and most reliable power generation in the world. Legitimate science has proven that anthropogenic (man caused) CO2 accounts for much less than one percent of all sources for CO2 worldwide, most sources being natural and beyond man’s control. China, India, and third world sources of pollution are virtually uncontrolled, and the cost to average Americans of radically reducing or eliminating anthropogenic greenhouse gasses would be exorbitant and accomplish absolutely nothing but the destruction of the middle class.

President Donald Trump has been working diligently to rescind many of the repressive regulations and agency rules that were causing American electrical rates to “necessarily skyrocket” as promised by former President Barak Hussein Obama. The resurgence of American industry and the economy are necessary for us to survive as a free and constitutional republic, and that is only possible with clean, affordable, reliable electrical energy.

What ideology and who are the actors behind this radical effort to re-wild America and reshape our electrical grid with no concern for the wellbeing of ratepayers. Hear from a leading national expert on the meaning of “big green” and the groups promoting the “fundamental transformation” of America as he shares information with two candidates for the Montana Public Service Commission intent on providing cost effective, clean and reliable energy for Montana’s ratepayers. You may never look at the Big Green Money Machine in the same way again. Join us for an eye-opening expose’ of the real enemies to a resurgent American economy under President Trump.
