Re: “Utilities Board agrees to add more solar after colorful public comment

$107? For a solar farm? That's a smoking hot deal. Sign me up.

"For the last time cs indy stop publushing this utter trash. Drivel. How are you still in business?"

Short Answer: it's called "Freedom of the Press." Check it out. You can find it in the First Amendment to the US Constitution.

As for going after advertisers, have at it. Fortunately, you are free to use your First Amendment right to deny that same right to others. It's a great country, isn't it?

No video is displayed or played using Safari. I don't appreciate your condescending and insulting comments regarding my ability to follow a link.

I have challenged you but I have not insulted you. Respect for others should be a hallmark of those elected to office. After all, it all of the rest of us that you supposedly represent.

Re: “Utilities Board agrees to add more solar after colorful public comment

Andres:

1. "since you seem unable to do any independent research to be able to find the posted Utility Board meeting video how is anyone supposed to take you seriously?"

Rhetorical question? I only ask because it appears that YOU have taken me seriously.

2. This isn't about my "independent research." It's about yours. You claimed to have looked at NWS data and denied that "those storms were out of the ordinary and insisted that global warming isn't happening. " You literally claimed to have proof of both assertions. "I showed the actual NWS data that proved the point before I made the point." I was only asking to see the NWS data that proved your point. That you expected me to do that research again and find the same data is to avoid backing up your own claims.

3. Asking for your credentials in now way denies you any right to your opinion. Express it freely. I'll do the same. However, claiming to have data that proves your points is not an "opinion." You stated a conclusive irrefutable fact and then failed to show your work. Since you have no special expertise on the subject, your opinion is no more valuable than mine.

4. Your statement that hurricanes are "NOT a result of Global Warming" is correct but incomplete. There is ample evidence that climate change makes hurricanes worse. https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features…

5. I followed your link. Thank you for providing it, but it does not say what you claimed. That page is the agenda and minutes for the Colorado Springs Utilities Board of Directors Meeting on September 20, 2017. You referenced items 1 and 14. Item #1 is the Call to Order. Item #14 is a Summary of Board Actions (Sherry Newell, Strategy and External Affairs Officer). I searched the 141 pages of the document for the term "NWS." There is no such term in this document.

I'm not trying to be difficult. I'm willing to consider data, especially that data that shows climate change is 1) not happening, or 2) not harmful. That's why I asked you for the data. Unfortunately, it's not where you said it was. If I should be looking elsewhere, please let me know.

Andres:

1. You still haven't linked to a single source of your data. I don't think you really want anyone to see it.

2. "Are you arguing that no one but you can cite NWS records and data?" You misquote me. I neither said nor implied any such thing.

3. "All you have to do is look at the video." Then why didn't you link to it?

4. I have erased nothing. I have burned no record book. I am no silencing anyone. I am not denying data. Rather, I am requesting it and you have not provided it.

Is that the best you can do? If so, ... "sad." Indeed.

Re: “Utilities Board agrees to add more solar after colorful public comment

Andres:

Since you didn't link to your data, I won't be able to see or evaluate it.

It might be helpful if you would list your scientific credentials as an expert on climate science/data. Since you're asking to be believed based on your personal experience with the data, it seems reasonable to ask for your background that would make your opinion credible and reliable.
