This would be funny were it not so pathetic and duplicitous.
Yesterday, the Connecticut Siting Council blocked the construction of a wind farm proposed by BNE Energy.
The Connecticut Siting Council, which is responsible for ruling on sites for power facilities, transmission lines and hazardous waste facilities, rejected a proposal Thursday to build a wind turbine in Prospect. In a 6-2 vote, the council cited the project’s visual impact.
Hopefully, you remember a post we did last month about a law suit brought by the State of Connecticut against the five largest power companies in the country. The post was prompted by the fact that Connecticut was about to argue its case before the United States Supreme Court.
The heart of the state’s claim was that ,
the companies’ additions to world-wide carbon dioxide levels have “contributed” to the process of global climate change. [emphasis supplied]
So, Connecticut, just how do you propose to meet the power demands of your citizens?
