Dear Ms. Tiz:
Thank you for writing regarding the American Clean Energy and Security Act, H.R. 2454. This legislation passed the U.S. House of Representatives on June 26, 2009, and now awaits action in the U. S. Senate.
I voted in support of this legislation to move the process forward and help our region realize the benefits of advancing clean energy technology, while at the same time recognizing that areas for improvement still exist. I appreciate your taking the time to express your specific views, as it will help guide our debate and facilitate important changes to H.R. 2454 as it moves to the Senate.
There are several reasons why we must take the issue of regulating greenhouse gases very seriously, and why we should grapple with this issue within Congress as opposed to leaving this to the whims of bureaucrats in Washington.

Here’s the real reason IMO:
“Our region is in a unique position: we have vast potential for more wind, solar, and geothermal energy production facilities to be built in Riverside County.”
The Coachella Valley (Palm Springs, etc.) is filled with wind turbines.
Pushing up the ante, I know you’ve got to see me,
Read ‘em and weep, the dead man’s hand again,
I see it in your eyes, take one look and die,
The only thing you see, you know it’s gonna be,
The Ace Of Spades
Not exactly “filled” with wind turbines. A handful off of the I 10, that generate very little energy.
There are 3,218 wind turbines in San Gorgonio Pass near Palm Springs delivering 615 MW (as of Jan. 2008.)
They are notoriously unreliable. And expensive to operate. Solar would make more sense in her district but the electric co & costs make it not workable.
Let's see if I've got this straight. Unaccountable bureaucrats have control, so let's vote to surrender our power to more more unaccountable bureaucrats.
Yep - living midway between Palm Springs (ever more politically active, thanks to the high percentage of same-sexers) and the Hispanic towns of the east Coachella Valley (tons of illegally registered voters, undoubtedly) we see that this area is only a blush of what used to be deep red.
Well, howdy neighbor!
