A Energy War Has Erupted!

By: Eugene Wilkie

A Energy War Has Erupted!

Over 60 Groups Want and Have Formally Asked Republican Leaders To Block Wind PTC Extension

The American Energy Alliance just released a letter asking for the end of the Wind Production Credit (PTC). To Read Full Letter Click HERE Folks this effects all renewables! This is not about Republican or Democratic parties it's about bullies who are trying to end one of the greatest economic booms this country has seen since oil was discovered. They recognize the pattern and this is why they are scared and spending millions of dollars to fight renewables. The economic injection that renewables has done for this country is astounding and they know it. Who do you think they will go after next? All renewables! This is an out right act of war against renewables and is funded by some very deep pockets in the fossil fuel industry (please see list of signers below). All renewable energy industries need to stand up united and fight back. Otherwise they will pick us off one by one. I recently wrote an article describing the amount of tax incentives the oil industry receives compared to solar  
Renewable Incentives Versus Oil Incentives and it is astounding that they would cry and whine to the government about poor old wind when you look at the amount of welfare they receive as an industry. America don't be fooled! 

The  North American WindPower site wrote an article that states:

The American Energy Alliance has joined with over 60 other organizations, including conservative group Americans For Prosperity and several anti-wind power organizations, to call on Republican leaders to block an extension of the wind production tax credit (PTC).

Then goes on to say:

The coalition released a letter ahead of the upcoming lame duck session of Congress, urging U.S. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, to reject any attempt to revive the wind PTC, specifically in any tax extenders package.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden, D-Ore., have both vowed to push for passage of the EXPIRE Act during the lame duck session. The long-stalled tax extenders package includes the wind PTC and about 50 other U.S. tax breaks.


Turn About IS Fair Play!
Why aren't there more public groups banding together to also call for an end to oil tax extensions. There is a war on renewables by the fossil fuel industries going on here folks. We can not just stand by and allow the end of the renewable industry. There is a huge amount of power and money being spent on ending an industry (renewables) for the benefit of a few. All renewables need to stand together and demand fair play!

The good news is renewables must have the fossil fuel industry very scared. Look at the amount of money and the lengths they are going to to fight us. We must stand up together with all renewables United. They specifically say in their letter they are just trying to protect natural gas, coal, and nuclear. Let us learn from them as they have united their biggest and baddest and so should we.
