Re: “Georgia's new coast, courtesy of climate change

This study is based on a false assumption of sea level rise of 10 mm per year. NOAA has measuring devices around the world that measure sea level rise. Their data shows rise has been under 3 mm per year for the past century with no change in the rate of rise. For what it is worth, the ocean has risen 400 feet in the past 15,000 years.

Re: “Solar Wars

Technical and economic issues against mandated solar energy in Georgia are so numerous they are given by the paper "Thoughts About Utility Scale Solar Energy".

Proponents of solar energy in Georgia use "economic models" to justify system economics. The "models" are laughable. If you want proof, examine the "economic model" used to justify the Dublin School Board's 25-year lease of electricity from a 1.1 MW solar plant sited on the Dublin high school grounds.

A final comment is made about President Obama's June 25 speech on climate change in which he plans to use the EPA to force utilities to abandon coal for electric power generation. Solar energy is a solution to replace coal. Efforts by Public Service Commissions to increase adoption of solar energy is interpreted as willingness to abandon use of coal and endorsements for President Obama's energy and climate change policies. This may provide ammunition for even more onerous energy policies.
