Energy And Gangsters

Dear Editor:

The following letter was sent on December 19, 2005, informing the reader of increased fuel costs to generate electricity.

I know you know and the politicians know that electric energy can be generated by turbines using methane gas from landfills surrounding NYC and Long Island. The purchase of oil and gas to fire up the turbines can be replaced by this method. But would this energy flow interfere with the oil lobby kickback to the politicians and the officials who regulate? The oil and gas lobbyists are there at your front door offering whatever you call it to forestall this perfected method of delivering energy. The PR that is generated to the public to cover up our eyes from this source of energy. These self serving ads by LIPA, National Grid such as energy saving devices is just a horrendous fake upon the public, and is a crime against the public. All those who cover up should be arrested as a crime in conspiracy with the oil and gas lobby. Have government gangsters taken over?

Waste Management, Inc. operator of over 275 landfills. They have provided energy without using oil or gas monopoly. They provide methane energy from landfills to thousands and thousands of homes. Yet this method/ source of energy is covered up by the politicians and officials within the recognized providers such as LIPA, National Grid. This method of energy has been perfected for over 20 years. In my backyard of Far Rockaway, the Edgemere landfill which has enough energy stored within its confines to electrify and heat all of Rockaway Beach (information researched on internet). Why then is this kept from the public? Is the oil and gas money filling your pockets to relent in using a recognized method for energy?
