Editorial: Inconvenient truth in the shift to renewable energy

Posted on June 25, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The one-sided argument on fossil fuel consumption goes like this: All things related to fossil fuels worsen global warming, the crisis of our times, and must be banned or reduced. No exceptions. From an environmental perspective, it’s a compelling argument that is difficult to refute.

Opinion: State has missed the mark on its energy policy

Posted on June 24, 2015 |
By Dhyan Nirmegh



For two May days I’ve stood on the lawn in front of the Capitol building in Montpelier with my two-by-three pictures of Vermont and New Hampshire mountains depicting the process of being destroyed by the cutting, blasting and bulldozing by green renewable energy facilities.

The pictures are uncomfortable. They make people stand and stare.

“Is this what really happens?” they ask. “I had no idea!”

Builders invited to share issues on energy efficiency

Posted on March 12, 2015 |
By Addison Independent



 

MIDDLEBURY — Why does it cost so much to build a new energy efficient house, and what’s up with all of these crazy insulation details?

People who are involved in the building trades are often asked these questions, and some of them ask these questions themselves.

Vermont Integrated Architecture, a Middlebury design and planning firm, is inviting area builders and architects to its “Roundtable for Residential Building Professionals” on March 25 to discuss such questions in an open, roundtable format.

Opinion: Compressed gas a good alternative

Posted on February 23, 2015 |
By Norton Latourelle



Let’s not feel bad because we’re not going to have a pipeline to Ticonderoga and maybe won’t have one to Middlebury or Rutland either. International Paper did the right thing and I would hope Vermont officials will make a wise choice and perform as good stewards of our environment and economy as well.

Low prices affect fuel dealers

Posted on February 2, 2015 |
By Evan Johnson



ADDISON COUNTY — Oil prices are subject to change. If anyone knows this, it’s Tom Jackman, owner of Jackman Fuels Inc. in Vergennes. His grandfather started the company in Bristol in the 1930s and he still has receipts from years ago when the price of oil was 13 cents per gallon.

“Then, it was a big deal if it went up to 14 cents in a year,” he said. “In 2008, we were seeing increases of 40 cents overnight.”

Opinion: New methane-related technology could be an asset

Posted on October 24, 2014 |
By Alpine Bingham



Recent developments in renewable energy have come to my immediate vicinity, both solar and bio-methane. A look at these two forms, one producing energy only during daylight hours and the other continuous energy 24 hours, yielded for me the following insight: If solar energy, which can only be stored by expensive batteries could be supplemented more directly by methane physically stored to be used to power a generator during morning and evening “peak” hours, the two could combine to greatest effect.

Posted on June 19, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



 As the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee voted 12-10 this week in support of the Canadian-based Keystone XL Pipeline that would cut through the country on its way to the Gulf of Mexico, groups in the western province of British Columbia are preparing to fight another pipeline, called the Northern Gateway, from the same tar sands region of Alberta to the BC Pacific coast.
