On April 23 Gov. Kim Reynolds stated in a Tweet that “the Green New Deal would destroy Iowa’s economy and our way of life.” Thank you, Governor Reynolds, for standing with your constituents against the Green New Deal.  Please follow suit by standing against industrial wind, industrial solar and their excess power lines.

Political “environmentalists” have painted Iowa’s turbines shining beacons to the Green New Deal.  The only reason to build expensive excess power sources or to greatly expand our power grid is if we believe in Climate Change. President Trump called Climate Change a hoax started by the Chinese Communist Party and I believe him.

President Trump also issued an executive order to keep foreign adversaries out of our power grid in order to maintain its security. Biden, of course, rescinded that. It is interesting that most of the components for wind, solar and batteries are made in China. China controls almost all the Earth’s natural resources of rare earth metals used widely in industrial wind, industrial solar, large scale batteries and smaller-scale batteries for electric vehicles. Listen to a short 6- minute podcast on Essential Geopolitics: “Who controls rare earth metals?”.

Do you think this is a coincidence?

Let us not rest any part of Iowa’s economy on a hoax.
