    The whole carbon tax is a mess. It would necessitate following the money and in PA that is not easy to do. One of the most politically corrupt states in the nation. Even school board members are in on it for different things. For whatever reason Wolf wants to kill the coal industry which, in my opinion, is stupid (see osama obama). The arabs can crush PA's natural gas industry in a heartbeat. Nobody can provide petroleum at the price that the arabs do except the arabs themselves. They are even kicking the Russians backsides. As for the use of additional revenues see that bottomless vacuum in the south east corner of the state. No need to name it. NY has one also.

All too often Energy companies come into an area, drill, take our resources, and leave us with the mess. So it IS a problem. They leave Gas/oil drilling equipment on PADS in the State Forest, so its not something that is invisible.

    Then we have PA Governor Wolf, who recently signed an Executive Order and put a CARBON TAX on electric power companies. That Tax money is being used for OTHER purposes, NOT the environment. The Two-Face Liberal Politicians are not fooling anyone. Climate Change is another vehicle to take more of our money.

No luck, but going to give it a go again this winter. Wife and I have seen sow and three cubs climbing trees. Little devils are all over the place.

    I keep thinking of the last bear season here in Pa. I live in a laurel and hemlock swamp, so bears are common around the house. had a hard time making up my mind on the opening day, ended up not going. so now, not sure about what I wanted to do, got up at daylight, sitting drinking my coffee, looking out the window, like I do every morning. wonder why that tree is black this morning, so I go to a different window, well a bear is standing up tearing up a dead hemlock. went outside with the marlin 44, tree is 46 yards from the porch. bear lays down, looking at me. so how close will he let me get. well 20 yards or so, no moving. could have dropped him right in his tracks, decided well, its not hunting, only killing. neighbors came out of the woods, they did not want to shoot him either so we chased him into the swamp. he is still around, seen him about a week ago. So it is true, you get soft in your old age I guess. any opinions on my decision?
