The global warming scam hits Brunswick

The Frederick News-Post Online – Frederick County Maryland Daily Newspaper

Ah yes. The environazis have descended onto Brunswick. Right now they are using the high energy prices to say we must go green now to reduce greenhouse gases. It’s known this is a bunch of hooey. These very environnazis are one of the reasons we have such high energy prices. We can drill onshore..anywhere..and we can’t drill offshore..even while foreign nations drill where we should be drilling. Come on folks. Let’s get energy under control by sweeping the environweenies out of politics.

Brunswick resident Karin Tome, a candidate for City Council, encouraged the council to adopt the Climate Protection Agreement. “I think it’s important that there be political will to inspire citizens,” she said.

you know..i was thinking about voting for her..but this kind of globalistic, UN based thinking has no place in Brunswick or anywhere else.

I think next election cycle I’m going to run for City Council. I’m not liking what I am seeing and it’s high time for me to get more involved i think.

Brunswick considers Cool Cities

BRUNSWICK — The Brunswick City Council got a course in environmental stewardship last week when the Sierra Club – Catoctin chapter pitched its Cool Cities Initiative.

The initiative encourages municipalities to sign the U.S. Mayor’s Climate Protection Agreement and pledge to cut their greenhouse gas output 7 percent by 2012.

“We are going to have to find ways to save electricity and gas,” Mayor Carroll Jones said after the presentation. “We call this contributing to a greener Brunswick.”

Brunswick also expects to implement single stream recycling later this year. The city is doing an energy audit to see where it can save money on electricity. Sierra Club representatives suggested using compact fluorescent light bulbs, which require less electricity, and turning off computers at night.

The city is installing street lights that use less electricity. “There’s a lot of low-hanging fruit we can pick to cut back on our expenses,” said Ellis Burruss, a resident who owns a local printing business.

The city’s new wastewater treatment plant will use more electricity because it is larger, City Administrator David Dunn said, but will require fewer chemicals, which will mean fewer trucks to transport those chemicals.

Brunswick is also looking into bike and foot paths to encourage more walking and biking, and planting more trees to increase shade, Jones said.

Brunswick resident Karin Tome, a candidate for City Council, encouraged the council to adopt the Climate Protection Agreement. “I think it’s important that there be political will to inspire citizens,” she said.
