Some state senators in Ohio have introduced a bill that will repeal the state's Alternative Energy Portfolio Standard... in its entirety.
I smell power company conspiracy. The utilities spend millions of dollars a year trying to influence legislation (because they're people, too!) So, which company could be responsible for what I'm going to dub "The Caveman-Knuckle Dragger Bill?" According to the article, three out of four Ohio power companies have received pretty good marks on compliance. Duke and Dayton Power each received an "A" on Environment Ohio's Clean Energy Report Card, while AEP received a "B." FirstEnergy received an"F" for failure to meet the standards for the past two years. Gosh, I wonder who would want to repeal Ohio's Alternative Energy Portfolio Standard?
Get ready to laugh... a "study" from the "American Tradition Institute" cited by bill sponsor Senator Kris Jordan claims:
"The report maintains environmental impact will be negligible because renewable sources are not proven to emit lower quantities of greenhouse gasses."
Ha ha ha ha ha! Not even a knuckle-dragging caveman would believe that!
Even AEP's duplicitous CEO, Mikey Morris, is smarter than that! Bend over, FirstEnergy and take your medicine!
