    Thanks for sharing the story.

    Unfortunately, oil companies do control much energy policy both locally and nationally.

    The same is true of many industries.

      My understanding is if you want to buy any oil equipment or services you have one choice. The guy that has given a lot of money to this economic development group.

      Now don't get me wrong, I guess if I had that much money and I gave it to a private group and they came out with ideas that would hurt my "core" business, I wouldn't be a "raving fan."

      But he has basically a monopoly at this point. Couldn't he carry that over to wind as he keeps making money on oil as the "bridge?"

      I mean my thinking is if I was advising him, and clearly I am not, if you keep dragging your feet maybe somebody might come in here and cut you out 24/7.
