by burning fossil fuels, coal, natural gas and some oil. 100+ years of meeting the demand for electricity by building these large fossil fuel fired generators, there are those who are in posi- tions of political power that believe this is bad and we must stop burning fossil fuels to satisfy our demand for electricity. Shut those generators down. I believe that for the most part these are the same people who opposed the construction of nuclear power plants and would rather see dams torn down to let the rivers run free. I won’t be surprised if these same people find reasons to be against wind generators and solar panels before too long. 916461500

Willingly or unwilling electric generating utilities will play the game. Today most utilities are not building electric generation for the future. The unknowns are just too great to invest the billions of dollars that will be necessary to meet future needs for electricity if we are to continue to enjoy the lifestyle we now have. Electric utili- ties will manage to make just as much money shutting down those “bad” coal plants because they were “forced” to do so.


solar generation.


I am solidly in favor of the expanded use as of wind and The wind generation development in Western


Oklahoma is a win for all. Solar energy is a gift from God. But it will take generations, if ever, for these sources to become the majority supply of our electricity needs.


I am convinced that if


regulations that are now being proposed are put in place, electricity will become less available and cost more. So much so, that many of us will be without affordable air conditioning. Hot, uncomfort- able people who have known better, will be hard for a government to control.


It was a hot June. Many record high temperatures fell. This tells me that it has been about this hot for a long time. Maybe the earth is warming. Apparently it has before. Maybe CO2 is adding to the temperature. Do we believe that we can change this by destroying the economy that supports us? The next generations, including my kids and grandkids are being taught this everyday – Fossil fuels are bad. Train up a child.


What to do if you hit a utility pole


If you have a car accident that involves a utility pole, don’t get out of your car. Instead, stay inside and use your cell phone to call 911. If you don’t have your phone with you, yell for help until someone else agrees to make the emergency call. The reason: Until an electric cooperative line crew reaches you and de-energizes


the power line, you have to assume the wire is “live” and can electrocute you and your passengers. Wait for the OK from the pros before touching anything outside of your car. Of course, if your car catches on fire, you’ll need to get out in a hurry. In that case, jump out so you land—on both feet—as far away from your car as possible.
