I’m thankful we’re already on the way to a clean energy future,
with more jobs, less expense than doing nothing, no new nukes, no coal at all,
much less natural gas, no need for any new pipelines,
better health, clean air and water, and profit.
The COP meeting in Paris can do what it will, and we can still make a better world and profit by it.
We’re already doing it, with solar and wind power, energy efficiency and conservation,
Sempra Energy’s California leak stinks so bad the VDT smelled it from 3,000 miles away.
But GA Gov. Nathan Deal still can’t smell Sabal Trail over campaign contributions
from Sempra and from Spectra Energy.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A utility trying to stop a monthlong leak
at a massive natural gas storage facility near a Los Angeles
neighborhood said it planned to use a mist to mask the sickening
stench as work continues — possibly for three more months
— to plug the well.
Fourteen Navy installations in California will get as much as a
third of their power from solar energy, following the Navy’s
agreement to make the largest purchase of renewable energy of any
federal entity, an agreement that calls for the construction of a
210-megawatt direct-current solar facility….
With the Mesquite project, last month’s groundbreaking on a
17-megawatt project at Camp Lejeune, N.C., and an upcoming
groundbreaking on a 42-megawatt project at Kings Bay, Ga., the Navy
is on track to have 1.2 gigawatts of solar power….
A usually reliable source says groundbreaking is tomorrow for
Kings Bay Solar.
Gretchen made an Open Records request Monday morning and
it was available Tuesday 4:37 PM: mostly on paper and less than
an hour before the Commission voted.
The rezoning material from the Planning office was sent by electronic mail.
The rest cost $9.40 to retrieve on paper.
Nevermind in the email earlier Tuesday of the
old ordinance from 1992 the county staff demonstrated they can
put a paper document on their copier and produce a PDF.
They could have done that with the rest of the board packet.
Why didn’t they?
Tisdale is being honored by Georgia’s First Amendment Foundation for her work in making public meetings available to the citizens of her community and for her dedication to keeping government open for everyone’s participation.
This should be an easy question, but it isn’t.
And the answer is a saw sales owner who previously promoted
development in an agricultural region of Lowndes County,
a realtor whose job is to promote development, and a preacher
who previously chaired a board that wanted to take tax money
from the county without rural citizens being able to vote on it.
None of them appear to have any experience in agriculture.
These are the people who oversaw the recent revaluation of rural
(and commercial) properties that would drive development into parts of Lowndes County that the Comprehensive Plan says should be agricultural.
Now I know all three of them, and they’re fine people.
But perhaps some rural people need to ask them some questions.

along with Mike Hill and W.G. Walker.
The proposed MAZ changes have “absolutely nothing to do with”
the 23 acres on Davidson Road that were proposed to be rezoned R-21 back in 2010,
after the county paved Davidson Road, said County Chairman Bill Slaughter at yesterday morning’s Lowndes County Commission Work Session.
County Planner Jason Davenport said he had hoped to get “on the same page with Moody”
before that same evening’s Planning Commission meeting
MAZ ULDC Text Amendments,
but as yet he had nothing to report, and tabling was an option.
I don’t think that word “ultimately” means what he thinks it does.
