From the Adam Smith Institute:
Protesters in California are blocking transmission lines between solar and geothermal fields in the Imperial Valley and Los Angeles and green lobbyists are obstructing a 150-mile link from solar panels to serve San Diego. Former Hummer addict and hastily baptized eco-warrior Arnold Schwarzenegger pointed out the obvious:
It’s kind of schizophrenic behavior… They say that we want renewable energy, but we don’t want you to put it anywhere.
Similar melodramas are playing out in Oregon, Arizona, the Dakotas, the Carolinas, Tennessee, West Virginia, northern Maine, and even upstate New York. It’s a nice irony to learn that the only people able to crush this green energy scam are the environmentalists themselves.
NIMBY – BANANA (build absolutely nothing anywhere near anything)
But don’t drill for oil where we actually know some exists!
