Troubled by Lamont's comments on proposed energy plant

Governor Lamont's choice of words on January 19 with respect to the proposed Killingly Energy Center 650-megawatt natural gas power plant were unfortunate. Slow permitting and "Playing some games?" Using the power of state government to abuse regulatory applicants and the public?

His words provide strong grounds to appeal and repeal any delays and denials in the permitting process, since Connecticut’s regulators are "playing games." This is typical of Connecticut’s pseudo-environmentalists − oppose every source of power generation in the state or its waters. That includes wind and solar. They only like power sources they cannot see. It is time for the governor to propose immediate construction of 650 megawatts of wind and solar power in this state and its waters. Renewable power we can all see.
