To address these threats, developers considering offshore and onshore renewable resources should proactively participate in the NEPA process with the competent authority. Active participation is essential to maintaining a reasonable record if the Agency`s action is challenged in court. DISCLAIMER: Due to the generality of this update, the information contained in this document may not be applicable in all situations and should not be implemented without specific legal advice based on specific situations. Since the near introduction of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Endangered Species Act and a number of related environmental legislation, competition for federal funding has been played out in part in the courts. Stakeholders, from environmental groups to ranchers, have raised legal challenges to the development of federal energy resources. In this article, we provide historical context for the current focus on wind energy, examine taxpayer dollars that support the wind energy industry, and describe the legal issues surrounding wind power generation and landowner contracts. How could this happen? Do you remember the song Razzle Dazzle from the movie Chicago.Did you have a “splendid” show, dazzled by glitter of flattery, dizzy and dizzy by the “Big Bambooz-a-ler”? It is such a beautiful county that is historically proudly maintained by people who love the rural community and are united by the love of natural beauty. That you allow corporate agitators to pollute your nest and exploit your desire to improve the environment while obtaining your consent to destroy it should not be a random thing. You should not confuse the badge of science – for example, the technical size of a huge wind turbine – with real scientific work, which would insist with skepticism to check the performance of the machine. The politicization of electricity production that is taking place here corrupts any reasonable sense of enlightened public policy, motivated by propagated slogans and a press that, most of the time, could not hit the water with a specific story if it fell off a boat.
New York State`s Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the politically correct renewable energy watchdog within the state`s PSC, has become one of those grotesque bureaucracies that exist to justify its existence, creating baseless inaccuracies about the potential of wind power in the same way that Cinderella`s half-sisters adapted that damn slipper to their oversized feet. NYSERDA`s collection of a renewable energy subsidy is nothing more than a legalized bunko system to deceive consumers. Thank you, Mark. That`s right, 15 years of production. And a few short years to destroy lives. Unreasonable financial interest of municipal officials. Corruption is sinking deep and spreading. We need lawyers. Yes, they will attend, but who else can break the stench of collusion and behind-the-scenes deals. There are so many lawyers there, it`s now at a high level, and I say, raise it.
Flood the courts, because sooner or later, the judiciary will take note. She added that the decision should serve as a warning to companies building wind farms to think carefully about their impact on the local population. Farmers have been using the wind for a long time. Beginning in the 1800s, farmers in the United States installed several million wind turbines in the Midwest and Plains to pump water and (later) generate electricity for lights and radios. These windmills blended well into the existing landscape and generally did not cause problems for others. Today, however, the wind energy industry uses wind in other ways through large wind turbines, which have a huge impact on the visual landscape and rural culture. In some communities, wind energy development has raised issues between neighbours, between private landowners and wind energy development companies, and between local officials and development companies. In 2021, there was new but familiar competition among stakeholders for the use and enjoyment of the outer continental shelf. Last year, interested parties filed five lawsuits against the first state-approved offshore wind farm, Vineyard Wind I (off the coast of Nantucket). And 2022 has so far continued the trend with a new challenge for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management`s (BOEM) designation of wind farms in New York Bay at the end of January.
These legal challenges mirror arguments gathered in numerous lawsuits across the country to delay or prevent oil and gas development on public lands. Developers interested in participating in the energy transition can learn from the experience of oil and gas production on federal lands. They would see the issue of liability for cumulative and irreversible damage become the legal liability of all those responsible for these turbines placed too close to homes. God bless the people of Arkwright, Cassadaga, Fredonia, Forestville for forming legal resistance and suing their local developers and industrial wind turbine facilitators. The filter of a legal “statement of claim” sheds light and clarifies the horrific problems caused by industrial wind turbines. “We already consider environmental and biodiversity issues, and sometimes the impact on landscapes, but not enough human health issues. This could create jurisprudence and, above all, change the rules,” he said. Christel and Luc Fockaert received €110,000 after health problems they claim were caused by wind farms. My opposition to this technology is a thoughtful response to the fact that it doesn`t work very well, even as an occasional substitute for fuel, certainly not appropriate for the damage it causes and the money it deducts from the tax rate and the taxpayer.
Like many spin-born celebrities, he is famous for being famous, not for his actual achievement. Chautauqua County could accommodate 500 wind turbines, each more than 400 feet high and spread over 100 miles, with blades rotating at 175 miles per hour at their ends. Together, they could inject about 250 MW of very sporadic energy per year into the state`s 37,000 MW power grid, but they are unable to replace conventional power, including coal, because they have virtually no effective capacity and would not save carbon emissions across the grid system without hard evidence. Their massive footprint will change the landscape, transforming their appearance from nature scenes to one dominated by industrial machinery.
