Duke Energy advises its customers to prepare for the ravages of global warming.

While Duke Energy’s Chairman, CEO, and President, James Rogers, spends millions of dollars of his customers’ money lobbying for cap-and-trade on Capitol Hill, the company’s web page for its South Carolina customers is passing along tips on how to handle cold weather.  Shouldn’t Duke Energy be warning its customers how much more they are going to have to pay to Duke Energy in higher electric rates if Congress passes the cap-and-trade legislation that Duke Energy supports?

Model Helicopter March 3, 2010 at 4:41 pm

Why do you pilot a helicopter from the right hand seat, while in a plane it is from the left hand seat? In the early days of rotorcraft development, the machines that flew then did indeed have a distinct difference in altitude between the left and right sides. The left side of the aircraft, at a hover, was considerably lower than the right side. Therefore it was determined that the right side should be the pilot's seat. If the rotor system turned in the oposite direction the effect would be reversed.
