Maybe we should be asking "what does NRG get for the $8.2 million that they pay in local taxes each year" and why do we do so little to reduce spending?

Perhaps that is part of the problem. NRG being the largest taxpayer in the city. Since NRG is the largest taxpayer means that less money is left over for NRG. Greed people. Why doesn't the city start looking at ways to reduce spending instead of increasing spending and then whining because the money is drying up. The mayor needs to get serious about cutting costs but he won't. It's always somebody elses fault the bank is short. Hey Mr. Mayor why not use the dirt cleaner your predessor bought and sell the clean dirt to people you can make a few bucks that way and then when the union contracts come up you will have the money to pay them.

And if all the hot air exuding out from a certain mouth could be canned we would have yet another alternate energy source and global warming discussions would not be a issue right Dcroaknig?

Steinerdzzz...if NRG could ever convert all the copious methane you produce into electricity, this discussion would be moot.

Mr editor, this is NY. Our leaders are saving the planet. where emotions are high facts are not wanted. Reliabily an issue ? Not for the libs, conservation will do it. even if no sun or wind. You have to enter the deluded mind of a liberal. Why I know for a fact they spied on steel plants and even coal plant stacks hoping to catch some emission thing. Then they go home and turn on lights and TV. Fracking caused the huge increase in natural gas, so we cant have that . Take away fracking and obamas war on coal might do it, but i doubt it. even libs have to gobble up huge amounts of juice, like Al gore does(10X average). They fly private jets too. This to tell us to reduce our Carbon footprint. blackouts our now a real possibilty. Is the High voltage line(along the 90 ) running in this hot weather ? This will give us a clue.
