Good morning. My name is Steve Milloy.
Xcel management is lying to its shareholders and the public.
And this lying is going to cost everyone a lot of money unless it’s stopped.
First, management says my report is not needed because it already does it.
That is a lie.
In denying management’s request to exclude my proposal from this meeting, the government lawyers at the US Securities and Exchange Commission told Xcel that it does not already do what I requested.
Why did I file my proposal?
Management has been lying to shareholders and the public about climate change.
What’s the lie?
The lie is that management is addressing climate change by switching out of fossil fuels and into pointlessly expensive wind and solar junk.
The truth is that Xcel could stop emitting carbon dioxide today and forever, and it would make no difference to the climate.
