NYS Governor Cuomo is on very solid record as wanting to shut it down.

Wanna make me grumpy–talk recycling

I know some stuff. For example, I know that recycling is stupid “do something to prove we care” nonsense. And it’s expensive. But it makes idiots feel good about themselves.

The only “green” in this NYS surcharge was money straight to the State

Back in 2009 NYS “imposed the so-called 18-a energy surcharge on ratepayers” in order to finance so-called “green” agenda of energy saving/conservation programs. In theory this would help finance, for example, lower cost insulation, or perhaps subsidize replacing water heaters, etc. In other words, the usual list… An arguable process, to be sure, and bringing up the whole issue of “special” fees, etc. to handle items that should be from general tax revenue, but almost defensible. Almost…
Except that…. eyup, you know where we’re going…

Political payoffs vs. (supposed) Enviro friendliness. Guess who wins?

The Tesla electric car is a darling of the Rich and Yuppie enviro crowd who want to believe it’s a “green” vehicle and want to show off their tree hugging credentials. Of course the truth ain’t quite that simple, but that’s a discussion for another day.
That being said, it seems to have run afoul of political business as usual in… New Jersey. Continue reading
