"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

    Gee, I’m curious about the CT siting board after reading this. Could it be they operate independently of their governor’s influence? Or perhaps their governor is a more astute student of science than Gina Raimondo.

    The ISO electricity demand forecast for 2017 is notably down from last year. Whenever any company such as Invenergy is using an ISO forecast to justify the need for their plant, it’s guaranteed that they’re using last year’s forecast or better yet for them, a seven year old forecast. At every possible opportunity, always publicly challenge the company on this unspoken and pointedly inaccurate business assumption of theirs. The electric demand for the generating plant no longer exists, and given consistently current downward trends it won’t ever get any better.
