More importantly, it warns that sea levels could potentially rise by more than three feet by the end of the century if carbon emissions continue to accellerate. Storms, as demonstrated in recent years, are predicted to be more fierce and more frequent.

And this is roughly where we are in our corporate tax debate.

Posted on August 8, 2013 |
By Emerson Lynn



It’s no secret St. Albans has a drug problem. But the problem can’t be localized. It’s not a St. Albans problem. It’s a Vermont problem, and its tentacles reach into every alley corner, every hamlet, every city in the state. For verification, all one has to do is to read the court report, talk to any of the folks involved in law enforcement, or, saddest of all, talk to those within the medical community. It’s pandemic.

By Biddle Duke



In a decade, solar power has grown from a virtual nonentity in Vermont to an industry employing hundreds that currently has capacity to power thousands of homes, businesses, non-profits and municipalities statewide.

Solar customers are attracted by the renewable, pollution-free energy source; by the tax credits and financing schemes that have vastly reduced the cost of installation and ownership; and by the upsides of generating power as close as possible to where it is consumed.
