The Biomass project is a proposal to burn green wood to power electrical generators. I am against this. We should  concentrating on Wind, Solar, and Hydro-electric power. We should also be working on developing new sources of energy.

Wind Power
Solar Power
Hydroelectric power

We should be working on

These methods of  generating electricity do not generate pollution.  Burning a fuel will put hydrocarbons and possibly other chemicals into the air. We should also be doing research into other sources of electricity.

What are we going to get?


Fossil fuel plants where  fuel is burned are not that different from boiling water over a campfire.   It is time we moved on from this technology
The fossil fuels  accumulate, the generating plants, factories cares etc.
The  pollution or exhaust from these plants is bad for people’s lungs.  



City Councils are made up  of real  estate agents, accountants, and business people who are  used to manipulating land and money.  They have no scientific background.  Some appear to be unable to understand the principals of combustion and chemical reactions.
The state government  has chosen to not involve itself in the project.  Again, the legislature is made of of mostly lawyers.  The legislature and the governor are interested in promoting the “global economy” more than  protecting the residents of Massachusetts.   Almost none have a  scientific background.  

They need to wake up and smell the exhaust

What should we do?

We need to start investing in the technology of tomorrow instead of the known problems of yesterday. Pollution is a  big problem and it is not smart to not develop sources of energy that  do not generate pollution.


The state should be the ultimate regulator. Wind and pollution  cross municipal lines.


Generation of electricity is important. Our industry and health system depend on it. Towns that are complaining  about wind turbines depend on it.


I would press for the state develop wind farms, hydro-electric  power, and solar power. We also need to develop methods of turning our garbage, rather  than food, into alcohol.


This will cut pollution, and make involvement in the middle east unnecessary.
