  •  I have one. But I wasn't aware (0+ / 0-)

    that you are so thin-skinned.  Sorry to have pushed your buttons.  

    Like I said, where I live environmental groups have been leading the charge to develop more renewables, but I do think that in some cases they don't make sense.  

    Location matters and there are competing values that should be considered, some of those are aesthetic, and some are environmental (like species that will be impacted).  As you point out, fossil fuels are a really problem, so on balance wind and solar are generally less impactful and a better choice, but not necessarily appropriate everywhere someone wants to build a large array or wind farm.  That has been my point all along.  

    I am glad that you have weighed the costs and benefits.  The initial post to which I was responding was framed in the broadest of terms, and I think misleading.  Maybe I read it wrong, maybe you meant "and against the objections of [a few] environmentlists [like Rebert Kennedy] that oppose them..."  You'll notice in my initial post I didn't defend Robert Kennedy writing

    Environmentalists are not a monolithic block, and wealthy landowners in big homes on Cape Cod might not really be 'environmentalists.'

    Have a nice day. Over. Lefty "asshat" Wingnut

      Define few how you want, but the Sierra Club has hundreds of thousands of members - that is a fact.  RFK Jr opposed and Teddy blocked Cape Wind (and many enviro's support Cape Wind).  My original one sentence posting could've went in more detail, but the point is that it's our side blocking these projects.  It is the work of liberals that is helping to feed Big Oil and the Climate Crisis by blocking these projects, not this ridiculous offshore drilling chatter.

      Your argument has finally boiled down to putting out vague statements (not necessarily appropriate everywhere? - is it possible to make that more vague?) - and having no opinion whatsoever on anything specific (that's how problems get solved!).
