The Minnesota “Sustainable Energy” Scam: From T. Paw to T. Boone
Jim Fetzer (Kristi Rosenquist with Mary Hartman) - June 29 2011
It was my pleasure to interview Mary Hartman and Kristi Rosenquist on “The Real Deal”, an internet radio program I host on M/W/F from 5-7 PM/CT, which took place on 17 June 2011 and has been archived at http://radiofetzer.blogspot.com. I was taken aback to discover that the sustainable energy program in Minnesota is by and large a scam designed to enrich the Texas billionaire, T. Boone Pickins.
I learned from them that a program being sold to the residents of Minnesota as an “environmentally friendly” enterprise actually appears to conceal a major rip-off of the public, where the purchase of land for wind mills is being use as a front to conceal taking control of mineral and water rights. The scam is so bad that the utility monitoring the production of energy has been derelict.
