Climate change is real

Hurricanes Sandy and Irene, and most recently Typhoon Haiyan, have demonstrated that we must act quickly to tackle climate change. Vermont has a responsibility to be a leader in this fight. A key element in our battle to address climate change is building a diverse energy portfolio that utilizes clean, local renewable energy like wind and solar.

We have a duty to take responsibility for our own energy production. Wind power must be a part of the solution. Wind power is one of the cleanest, most environmentally responsible forms of electricity out there today and should play a part in Vermont’s commitment to address climate change.
