I suggest that the Commissioners drive through the Oak Creek Industrial Complex and take a close look at the Four + Industrial growth buildings that are under construction. Then try and convince yourself that this product which will be coming on the market near the end of the year will be limited to Colorado. Take special note of the huge air, water and electrical systems that are installed or being installed on these grow factories. Imagine the noise pollution,& the air pollution in the vicinity. All four of these facilities are within 200 ft of a childrens park that the town had GOCO Colorado pay for with additional funding from LiveWell (?). In fact one of them will share the parking. A "good relationship" may not be the best substitute for stringent regulations as these facilities will be there long after this town council and town manager is long gone.

Wouldn't it be interesting if anyone who is going to comment on Global Warming, Climate Change, or Carbon sequestration, was required to have some prerequisites like 6 semester hours of Geology, 4 of Physics, 4 of Chemistry and at least some background in the understanding of the difference between weather and climate.

Good article in Jan Scientific American, by David Biello. "The Carbon Capture fallacy". Worth the read. Addresses some of the comments above. Another worthwhile read about the embarrassing con job the IPCC is pushing, is "The Delinquent Teenager", by Donna LaFramboise. I am looking for investors in my almost perpetual motion windmill system. I put a bunch of wind turbines in a very tight circle and therefore the first one turning pushes the subsequent wind turbines with or without wind, once they have started. Theoretically, it should work and it would save mankind.

I checked in when there were 11 comments and the paper management cut off all comments from the article. Their comment the next day was that the comments were personal attacks. This local paper needs to get with it. Stop trying to be the nice guy - feel good. If a specific letter to the editor or comment section is offensive per your own definition, eliminate it. Not cut off ALL comments because you think you are protecting the community.

I tried to vote and it said that the vote was not registered because someone else from my computer has already voted. NOT TRUE~ ~ ~ ~ Nobody on this computer but me. Why is the vote count system at the paper not counting votes? Is it the VAST LEFT WING CONSPIRACY, that we all hear about?
