  •  revoking a clearance already granted! (3+ / 0-)

    I wish that would happen here.
    I can see that there could be issues around the whole idea of revoking something, but considering how much of the time approval is granted on the basis of behind the scenes corrupt deal-making, revocation for "non-application of mind" sounds wonderful!
    It could somewhat level the playing field in terms of constant effort. When we do manage to keep some potential environmental disaster from getting approved, they just come back the next cycle and try again. When they get approval, they only have to get it once. It would be much harder to plan and fund these things if there were a danger of permission being revoked in cases that it shouldn't have been granted in the first place. It might make genuinely sustainable projects more attractive even to those who only care about making money.
