    And how would they be doing that?
    By collecting rent on leases funded with YOUR tax dollars indirectly through dotgov subsidies on "green energy".

    Having trouble connecting the dots are ya?

    Sustainable = tax subidies. Bummer of a realization. But not just taxes. My county pud (noun, not acronym) thought it was a great idea to invest in wind and sell the excess power to CA. This has not panned out so well (CA not paying their bills , trying to pass laws against purchasing out-of-state power), so now the ratepayers are seeing an instant 17% increase in electrical rates to cover the costs. See www.cowlitzpud.org/pdf/FAQ on Rates 10-26-2011.pdf for more boring details. Read it to find out how excess electricity means higher rates. Ha, the clown didn't even need to pass C&T to see energy prices "necessarily skyrocket".

    Obviously, the money to make power comes from somewhere. If it is not from the power companies it is from taxes. Money out of the pocket either way.
