U.S. fishing industry teams up with oil lobby to fight offshore wind

Members of the U.S. commercial fishing industry are teaming up with an oil industry-backed lobbying group to fight offshore wind energy development on the East Coast, according to documents reviewed by Reuters and interviews with people involved.

GLEN – Residents say they were not fully aware of plans and the impacts of a wind turbine proposed in the town before a public hearing on the project this week, while raising objections over the developer’s failure to prepare renderings depicting what the over 600 foot tall device would look like from nearby homes as requested.

It’s a step toward the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s plan for offering up to 10 additional wind leases in the waters from Delaware Bay to Long Island. “BOEM is focused on ensuring that any development in the New York Bight is done responsibly and in a way . . .

Solar, wind not enough for state’s energy needs

If building a reliable, affordable grid was a public relations stunt, New Yorkers wouldn’t need to worry. In “N.Y.’s energy for change,” Nov. 28, Basil Seggos, state Department of Environmental Conservation commissioner, and Doreen Harris, state Energy Research and Development Authority president and CEO, play a game of smoke and mirrors. In their commentary, they lay out fairy-tale plans – colossal solar and wind buildout – to satisfy New York’s growing electricity demand with sources that generate nothing most of the time. . . .

Group continues push against lake turbines

Residents along the Lake Erie shoreline have been fighting against wind turbines in and around Lake Erie for the last 13 years.

Before the Diamond Wind project was announced in 2019, two other companies also considered placing turbines in the Great Lakes waters. In Ohio, the Lake . . . Complete story »

Assemblyman Andrew Goodell wasn’t sure exactly what he was seeing off the side of Interstate 86 near Bath. Intrigued, the Jamestown Republican turned his car around to investigate. What he saw was a pile of discarded wind turbine blades more than 50 feet high strewn more than length of a football field. Earlier this year, Goodell and state Sen. George Borrello, R-Sunset Bay, proposed legislation to create a state requirement that wind and solar companies provide the state Office of . . . Complete story »

Unrealistic beliefs in climate law

New Yorkers should be on high alert in the wake of a new study issued last month concerning the ambitious climate law signed by then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo in July 2019 that mandates goals and timetables for the state’s transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. The study reveals the unrealistic assumptions entailed in the law, the extraordinary cost of trying to achieve them and the inability or unwillingness of the law’s authors or implementers to say how much of that . . .
