Back on the Air with Allan Loudell on WDEL

Allan Loudell has invited me back on WDEL, 1150 AM at 12:38 to discuss the latest news on wind power.
The General Assembly reconvenes next week, and HCR 38 should come to a vote in the House after being held up in the Republican caucus before the break. I am told that prime sponsor Bob Valihura was not happy with the delay. HCR has 22 sponsors in the House, so it should pass once it comes up for a vote.
If you miss me during the noon hour, WDEL also posts podcasts of recent interviews.
Update: The conversation was mostly about polling and public opinion. Demarva Power denies the story about a push poll.
The company did conduct a poll last October. My favorite finding was that beachfront property owners prefer offshore wind to onshore wind by a 3 to 1 margin, 52 percent to 16 percent.

Dana at Delaware Watch has an MP3 of the interview.

Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead, I see. It would be a shame if the facts were to intervene in your little offshore wind party.

Hogan, you have been exposed as a shill for the industry.
We only need to hear from honest brokers on either side of the argument.

Tom, have you seen that Maryland is ready to dedicate the money from greenhouse gas polluters to help pay for poor people's energy bills? WGMD posted the news item and I put it up on DE Way.

That is some of the kind of thinking outside of the box that I was looking for here in Delaware.

There is a justified fear from the poor that this wind power deal will increase their bills, if only a small amount.

I say dedicate greenhouse gas funds to these people so that we can fairly introduce the added expense of off-shore wind. In the long-run we will all be paying much less for energy because of it.

Why does Delmarva Power need to pay for a toll-free number for their employees when their employees know full well how to reach their legislators through a local call? This is a travesty and a disgrace. DPL's customers should be suing the company for charging them to pay for toll-free phone services and the millions more they're spending to kill the wind bid. And where's the Public Advocate?
