Vermont’s Energy Policy Is Out Of Touch with The People, Culture, And Economy of the State. See the Latest EAI Video

The Ethan Allen Institute released this week a ten-minute video overview of Vermont’s current energy policy and what it means for the future of our state. In a nutshell, transitioning to 90% renewable energy by 2050 will be devastating to our landscapes and ecology, harmful to the “Vermont Brand,” and contrary to the culture of the communities that will be affected most directly by these policies.

Too many Vermonters do not understand the scope of this vision for our future, nor is it clear to them the magnitude of impact implementing this policy will ultimately have on virtually every aspect of our lives. This video is designed to put our energy future into a digestible format, easy to understand and to visualize.

We posted this video on our Facebook pager earlier this week and it has already reached nearly 25,000 Vermonters and received 17,000 views. Please watch and share!

With fusion energy on the horizon, all of these renewable energy projects will become obsolete and abandoned in a matter of a few of decades. Who is going to clean up the mess?
