Environment’s care splits Christians

Ken Notes: Arghhhh! This one drives me crazy, as a christian let me simplify the debate. This is not about Global Warming, or Donald Trump or the liberal tree huggers. This is simple -- too much Carbon is bad for our children and grand children (not to mention us). It can make you ill, pollute our water and air, and makes us dependent on foreign interests who have more of it than we do. We now have technologies that can reduce carbon and produce power from more sustainable sources that we have plenty of, like sun and air. These technologies can also help feed the hungry, heal the ailing, and provide a better life for all humanity. I do not care about global warming, because there are even better reasons to shift our focus to more efficient sustainable production of: energy, light, transportation, technology, and agriculture. To suggest we NOT pursue these in a cost effective and sustainable manor, that is better for our grandchildren, is the most unchristian thing I have ever heard.

"But if anyone has the world`s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God`s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth." -- 1 John 3:17-18

Third-party solar financing grows in Wisconsin, despite legal uncertainty

Ken Notes: Wouldn`t be nice if the third party owners were the utilities themselves. They could compete with others on a level playing field and we would see the program explode. I worry about asking the PSC or legislators for a ruling now because the lobby money is on the side of the utilities and currently some do not want third-party ownership. P.S. I have 600 feet of due south 7/12 steel roofing in Albany Wisconsin available....

Gov. Scott Walker signs Wisconsin aquaculture bill into law

Ken Notes: Why do we try and fix process problems (getting permits and approvals) by eliminating the results of the process, safer products. If we had to wait years to apply for and get a drivers license should we eliminate the need for them at all (and why do we need patrol officers). We would, and have, improve the process and that is what we should do here.
