Scares me to think that a lawyer of out Malone has been asked to "clean up" NY!

wow prober, you are one confused fellow. There are no connections to anything like reality in your diatribe. As for me I don't drive a subaru or eat granola and used to ride a motorcycle until I got tired of dodging morons who drive with their eyes closed. But yes Hummers are extremely wasteful of energy and serve no useful purpose for anyone driving outside of a warzone, just another example of conspicuous consumption and look at me mentality that the American "upper" class is famous for.

One more thing, if Sunmount closes, say goodby to T.L., S.L. and L.L. They employ roughly 2,000 people and affect close to 10,000 other jobs. Get those numbers????

More regulation, More laws, more oversight, more overlords, less jobs, less trails, less access for hunters, less state jobs, more tar in the cracks so motorcyclists can crash. Oh wait.. that last one if for the DOT. But you Subaru granola eaters don't care about Bikers. But make sure you give up your big Hummers! WOW! hypocrites

Placing a grandstanding buffoon like D Champagne is good evidence that the panel is a sham.

I doubt very much that a careful, deep-searching vetting took place for each panel member. I'll believe it when I see it that a few local DAs and a few rich friends of the Gov. from the north country are going to take on Wall Street. This is just smoke and mirrors.

It's not just a concern for "enviros". What good do new regs do when the EPA regularly grants exemptions to politically well connected energy companies? The EPA has not even kept track of exactly how many exemptions it has issued, where they are, or whom they might affect. I can understand how people can disagree on esthetic values such as wind or cell phone towers affecting a view but clean water and air are essential for us all even if that means giving up hummers and other forms of energy guzzling and waste.

This is what should be focused on the enviros, instead of trying to trash our economy and run man out of the Adirondacks.
