Senator Dorgan says we need to build more long-distance transmission lines in order to meet President Obama’s goals for renewable energy. Dorgan supports giving the federal government the power to seize land for power lines through eminent domain.
Let me see…ranked by the size of the coal reserves, the top states are: #1 Wyoming, #2 West Virginia, #3 Illinois, #4 North Dakota (tied with Montana).
Hey, isn’t Senator Dorgan from North Dakota?
Maybe he has invented a magic meter that will keep coal-fired electrons off the new transmission lines and only allow renewable-generated electrons to pass.
They want rate-payers in every state, including Maryland, to subsidize the new coal-by-wire “green transmission grid.”
