Governor: New York State to Invest $3 Billion for Offshore wind
#NewYork State's Governor Andrew Cuomo admitted at his state of the state address that New York State is facing a $4.4 BILLION dollar budget deficit, as Cuomo simultaneously is literally throwing $4.4 BILLION into the wind. See: 1.) Governor: #NewYork State to Invest $3 Billion for #OffshoreWind: http://ift.tt/2G3F8oA 2.) Governor Also Announces $1.4 Billion in Awards for 26 Large-Scale #RenewableEnergy Projects, the Largest Single Commitment to Renewable Energy by a State in U.S. History: http://ift.tt/2HLPkzw http://ift.tt/2G3F8oA The first step would be to issue an RFP for 800 MW of offshore wind off the coast of Long Island.http://ift.tt/2zdPuzM

MAILBAG: Siting of industrial wind turbines poses unacceptable risk to migrating birds
While I applaud the American Bird Conservancy (ABC) for speaking out against Apex's proposed 'Lighthouse Wind' project, it is really quite sad that supposed "#environmental" groups like this continue to give undue credibility to the massive environmentally-destructive CONSUMER FRAUD that is industrial wind by saying such things as, "Renewable energy, including #windenergy, is an important way to cut our dependence on #fossilfuels and address global #climatechange." There is absolutely NO PROOF that industrial wind has significantly mitigated #CO2 emissions that alarmists blame as a cause of climate change - NONE. By making it a siting issue - claiming the project along the shores of Lake Ontario is just in the wrong place - ABC gives industrial wind energy undue credibility, and just kicks the can down the road to the next poor community who is going to have to fight off these Big Wind bullies, making ABC the worst of the #NIMBYs (It's OK in somebody else's backyard, just not here.) Industrial Wind is A NET LOSER - Economically, Environmentally, Technically, and Civilly.

Drew Johnson on how Russian elites benefit from restrictions on U.S. gas pipelines. This harms Americans (who pay more than necessary for energy). It harms the environment (because shipping gas from Russia consumes more resources and emits more pollution than piping it). And, there is evidence that Russia sponsored the environmental groups who pushed for those restrictions - http://ift.tt/2tViYym Why is Russian Gas in Boston Harbor?

Once turbines arrive, say goodbye to peace, quiet | News, Sports, Jobs - Observer Today
Same sad story, different Town. WHEN are New York State elected officials going to WAKE UP and call for an END to the industrial wind CONSUMER FRAUD and its' resulting, needless destruction of New York State countrysides, communities and personal health, safety, & property rights of ALL New York State residents?!? Most infuriating is the sad fact that Mr. SIgourney, and countless others like him - now stuck living in the footprints of these noisy, land-intensive, sprawling messes - have been ASSAULTED with the use of their own taxpayer and ratepayer dollars by our energy-illiterate, greed-driven crony officials (the very people who took an oath to serve & PROTECT us from such egregious assaults). The wind scam began in 2000 in New York State. 18 years later, there are 20 installed wind factories blighting once-beautiful New York State countrysides, which are averaging a pathetic annual Capacity Factor (actual output) of approximately 25% - many days providing absolutely NOTHING at all. 18 years and $BILLIONS of tax & ratepayer dollars later, wind energy - designated together with ALL 'Other Renewables' (ie: wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, etc) are now providing a measly 3% of New York State's electricity generation. If wind turbines were cars, they would have been relegated to the junk yard immediately. Who among us would buy a car that operated only 25% of the time? You wouldn't. You couldn't afford to. It's just that simple.

Ya think?!? Since the first wind factories were installed in New York State in 2000, New York State now has 20 installed wind factories, which - combined with ALL other renewables (ie: solar, geothermal, biomass, wood, etc) - are still generating only a combined 3% of total electricity generation in the state. "A recent NYISO study says we'll have adequate replacement power for Indian Point if no fewer than three natural gas plants go on line by 2021: the Bayonne Energy Center, transmitting from New Jersey; the CVP Valley Energy Center, under construction in Orange County; and the Cricket Valley Energy Center, under construction in Dutchess County. As of now, neither Valley Energy Center nor Cricket Valley has received all the permits needed to become operational; the state has mysteriously blocked these approvals, as well as the approvals for the pipelines needed to supply them with natural gas...." - http://ift.tt/2FRiFbM via @timesunion http://ift.tt/2Fduatb Anyone who's ever viewed the magnificent New York City skyline at night - glittering, vibrant, and reaching ever higher by the year - has seen the proof of how reliable power sources are to our economy and our quality of life in this state.
