  • It should be noted that Greenfield's public servants have violated Article 1, Section 10 of the Constitution be creating an alliance with a foreign entity. The 'I' of ICLEI stands for International. This group was formed in 1990 to help the UN create what is now called 'Agenda 21' which is a comprehensive plan to manage every person on Earth, just like cattle.

    ICLEI develops off-the-shelf land use plans that are modeled after the Global Biodiversity Assessment report that identifies things like single family homes, private property ownership, traditional farming, power lines, farm ponds, and a litany of other common human amenities and UNsustainable.

    This is a vile organization that is 100% repugnant to the concept of constitutional protections within a free republic. If you take the time to evaluate the system of un-elected commissions and councils that ICLEI creates and works with, it is undeniable that we've allowed a soviet system to be constructed around us.

    By using a combination of 'Visioning' and the 'consensus process', citizens are being easily duped into cutting their own throat.

    This is AGENDA 21 slowly eating up local control mechanisms and destroying your ability to remain economically viable.

    ICLEI, the APA, Sierra Club, Chamber of Commerce and a small army of Land Trusts are classified as NGO's. It's also important to realize that an NGO is a UN certified organization committed to instituting their plan for sustainability....Agenda 21.

    You're witnessing the globalization and collateralization of American private property.

    14. 14. Comparisons: % Cost & % Climate Change Emissions Pie graphs look pretty much alike… so we will focus on cost (2001 gov data) Cost ($$) Climate Change Emissions Waste 20% Streetlights 9% Vehicles 12% Water/Sewer 11% Buildings 48%
    15. 15. Government Energy Costs <ul><li>FY01- $1.71 million or </li></ul><ul><ul><li>4.4% of the Town budget </li></ul></ul><ul><li>FY08 - $2.36 million or </li></ul><ul><ul><li>5.8% of the Town budget </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This is an Increase of </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$645,995 (38%) </li></ul></ul>
    16. 16. Gov’t Energy: Building Efficiency Thousands of BTUs / Sq. Ft.
    17. 17. Gov’t Energy… Streetlight Costs FY01: $157,582 or 9% of total FY08: $141,346 or 12% of total 01-08…Energy use & Climate Change Emissions increased by 30% but costs went down 10%
    18. 18. <ul><li>Government energy use is </li></ul><ul><li>2.7% </li></ul><ul><li>of total community-wide energy use </li></ul> Community – Wide Audit
    19. 19. Data Sources <ul><li>Natural gas – From Berkshire Gas, for usage and cost, broken down by residential, commercial, industrial for FY01 & FY08 </li></ul><ul><li>Electricity – from WMECO , broken down by residential, commercial, industrial for FY08. Cost based on average $/kwh in Greenfield. FY01 3% more, based on fact that electricity usage dropped about 1% last few years. </li></ul><ul><li>Oil – Residential usage based on # of households that use oil in 2000 census + USDOE usage/household. Cost based on average cost in Greenfield in ‘01&’08. </li></ul>
    20. 20. Data Sources <ul><li>Oil – Commercial & Industrial – Usage based on square footage of buildings from Greenfield Assessors office and USDOE data on energy use per sq ft. </li></ul><ul><li>Propane, Wood, Coal – Residential usage based on # of households using that fuel as noted in 2000 Census and USDOE data on usage per household. Cost based on average cost in Greenfield in FY01 & FY08. </li></ul><ul><li>Propane, Wood, Coal – Commercial & Industrial usage was not available. </li></ul><ul><li>Gasoline & Diesel for Transportation – US Census, Registry of Motor Vehicles, and US DOE </li></ul>
    21. 21. Community-wide Audit… Most Startling Observation - $$ <ul><li>In FY2001 we spent </li></ul><ul><li>$48.1 million on energy </li></ul><ul><li>With 7,905 households that is $6,142 / household </li></ul><ul><li>With 18,666 people that is $2,601 / person </li></ul>
    22. 22. Most Startling Observation - $$$$$ In FY2008 we spent $85.8 million on energy Assuming the same number of people $10,951 / household $4,638 / person
    23. 23. Most Startling Observation - $$$$$ of the $85.8 million we spent on energy in FY2008 $67,144,850 left our community! 78% of the total
    24. 24. Community Energy Use….. 1/3 rd each sector
    25. 25. Transportation….. How Far do we Travel? What does it cost? How Get there? Miles traveled by vehicle type In 2008 we spent $32.5 mil. to travel 152 mil. miles Cost has doubled since 2001 08-SUV’s used more than 50% of the gas, only 37% of miles
    26. 26. Understanding fuel cost & CO2 emissions – by fuel type Today, electricity is the biggest CO2 emitter and the most expensive
    27. 27. Total Energy Used… by fuel type and sector Transportation used the most followed by electricity and oil
    28. 28. Air Pollution … Health Care Costs Health Care Without Harm calculates that emissions from our electrical use alone causes direct expenses of over ½ $mil each year, and an additional $5.4 mil per year in societal costs due to respiratory diseases, hospital visits, lost work, premature deaths.
    29. 29. Greenfield’s Commitment Mayor Forgey’s Announcement, January 15, 2009 By 2050 80% reduction in climate change emissions ZERO Greenfield energy $$$ leaving the region
    30. 30. Cities for Climate Protection SOFTWARE –does / does not do <ul><li>WHAT WORKS: </li></ul><ul><li>Spreadsheets to gather data </li></ul><ul><li>Converts data to common unit of your choice (MMBtu) </li></ul><ul><li>Calculates climate change emissions (lbs, tons) </li></ul><ul><li>Cost of gov’t energy use </li></ul><ul><li>WHAT’S MISSING: </li></ul><ul><li>COST not included in community-wide audit section </li></ul><ul><li>Data you enter is NOT visible in report – hard to ck data entry </li></ul><ul><li>?USE EPA Portfolio Manager for buildings? </li></ul><ul><li>Does NOT look at TYPES of use - elec, heat, transp fuels </li></ul>NEW Software Soon
