An Unbelievable but Apparently True Story
A $400 milion wind generation facility is about to go on line in eastern
except Republican legislators in that state want
to stop it. Really.
legislators want the incoming Trump administration to shut down
a nearly complete, $400 million wind farm they believe poses a national
security threat because it’s too close to a long-distance surveillance radar
Yes, ten legislators who are totally and completely ignorant on the subject want to over-rule DOD just because they hate non-polluting wind energy and want the pollution that comes with coal burning. Of course all safeguards are in place.
“A 2014 agreement between Avangrid and the Navy said that although there is potential for conflict between the wind farm and the radar array, the Pentagon also sought to enhance the country’s renewable energy resources. The agreement specified placement of the project’s wind turbines and an understanding that the company would curtail operations “for a national security or defense purpose.”
Of course the Neanderthal legislators explain how the project got military approval.
But the lawmakers’ letter said the Pentagon dropped opposition to the wind farm because of the “political correctness” of outgoing President Barack Obama’s administration.
Somebody needs to tells these people that clean air is not political correctness, it is necessary for life. And the rest of us want everyone to live pollution free, even these idiots.
