I have read H 951, and it is indeed bad. I understand that some conservative House members believe it can be fixed in the Senate, but I wonder if that will happen. Prematurely closing functional coal fired power plants for political "virtue signaling" to the left makes no sense and will only cost ratepayers and probably taxpayers money they should not have to be paying. Gas fired plants are a reasonable replacement when those coal plants reach the end of their useful life, but not before. The "energy storage" nonsense is a pipe dream that has never worked anywhere, and North Carolina is supposed to depend on THAT to replace working coal fired plants? Even globalist oligarch Bill Gates has openly admitted that energy storage simply does not work. There is nothing in the bill to guard against the hazardous substances involved with both solar and wind energy production or to require bonds for site cleanup afterward. This is a special interest bill concocted by special interest lobbyists that is very much against the interests of the citizens of the state. This bill even leaves intact the outrageous exemption from county property taxes for the wealthy big corporations that own wind and solar facilities. Why should the average Joe county taxpayer subsidize these wealthy corporations?

Well, I hope there is something here that I am not seeing.

According to some of our GOP representatives they are "fighting the Green New Deal" with "The GOP plan." Upon closer scrutiny the NC House GOP plan seems to be handing out taxpayer goodies to green energy interests and removing whatever regulations that do exist while at the same time watering down any initial support of nuclear power facilities by replacing wording like "will be" spent with "may be" spent on nuclear. This sounds like transforming the North Carolina power grid into the California power grid.

Regarding the HB 951 vote: Only two Democrats voted for it. Fifty five Republicans voted for it. The ONLY Freedom Caucus members that did not vote for HB 951 were Pittman, Brody, Sauls, Strickland and Torbett.

It could be that petrified little Swedish girl and the Communist Bronx bartender chic are the least of our worries. One thing I do know: In this age of bamboozling, this old goat is about bamboozled out.

How about letting Dementia Joe go first? He needs to agree to voluntarily disarm his own Secret Service detail before he starts calling to take away anyone else's guns.

The drive to end privacy worldwide comes, as so many bad things do, from the totalitarian globalist elitists of Klaus Schwab's World Economic Forum. Their influence is shown by how many government's, including ours, are using the WEF's slogan "Build Back Better". One of the other WEF slogans, which they do not publicize as much is "You will own nothing, and you will be happy." Schwab and his minions are some of the biggest threats to democracy and freedom in the world today. Anybody who goes to his meetings is Davos should be viewed with suspicion.

Asian countries currently have over 600 new coal fired power plants under development. They know that cheap and reliable electric power is necessary for a sound economy. Why do RINOs in Raleigh want to drive a stake through the heart of OUR economy by taking cheap and reliable coal offline and replacing it with expensive and unreliable wind and solar? Grata Thunberg seems to be the patron saint of our hopelessly out of touch GOP legislative leadership.

When all of the money making schemes with solar and wind are over with, nuclear is the long term low cost answer. That is why these all of these people work so hard to defeat nuclear. It all runs on our money.

NC taxpayers and ratepayers have already been ripped off by over a billion dollars in the solar energy boondoggle. Now these grifters are demanding more and the RINO's led by Moore are selling us out to them. Shameful. That does not even count county taxpayers. Under state law passed when the Democrats were in control all of the equipment of the wind and solar "farms" is exempt from county ad valorem taxes, so the average citizen taxpayer has to subsidize these mostly out of state wealthy solar and wind companies. This bill allows that taxpayer ripoff to continue. Conservatives need to primary every one of these lousy Al Gore / AOC "Republicans". They are a cancer in our party which must be cut out. Politicians who are in the hip pocket of the special interests, of whatever party, are NOT what we need in office.
