Some folks in Vermont want to raise taxes on Vermont Yankee to help pay for a "clean energy" fund. Considering that the state is already running a budget surplus, Vermonter Cool Blue has other ideas:
[Th]e owners of the Vermont Yankee power plant already contributes $2.5 million a year into the state's Clean Energy Development Fund.I'll leave that up to my readers.
So what does the Legislature want to do with this obvious good Green neighbor? Why, tax it more, of course.
In the name of Global Warming.
So they can buy buses.
Which pollute the air and spew greehouse gases.
Make sense to you?
