Letter: Cap and trade will make electric rates increase, he says


Jane, if you think that the increase by Pierce-Pepin is untimely, you better get ready for the huge increases that the Obama administration plans on passing on to you in the form of cap and trade.

These increases have been done by almost every supplier of energy in the last few years to pay for the hog wash they call alternative energy, i.e., wind farms.

If you had been listening to the election promises of Obama, there is no room for cheap energy from coal in this country, only more expensive green forms to save the planet from global warming, which has to be the biggest load of crap to be forced on the people of this great country.
