Assalto eolico, il Tar salva la “Stonehenge sarda”

Bocciato il ricorso della Green Sardegna 2 che voleva conficcare le pale eoliche a Goni, tra Menhir e necropoli. [The appeal of Green Sardegna 2, who wanted to stick the wind turbines in Goni, between the menhir and the necropolis, was rejected: Renewable energies cannot in any way prevail or, worse, be all-encompassing over other constitutional values, such as the landscape, the environment, the culture, and the identity of a people.] Volevano assaltare a colpi di pale eoliche il proscenio . . .

«Un referendum per dire NO alle pale eoliche in Calabria: Occhiuto tuteli i Calabresi»

Un referendum per dire NO a nuovi impianti eolici in Calabria. Per dire basta al proliferare della pale che stanno devastando il territorio calabrese senza portare nulla all’economia calabrese. E gli impianti realizzati dovranno essere smontati e smaltiti in tempi brevi (massimo 20 anni). Questa la nostra proposta contro una situazione che, in tutta Italia, sta creando un movimento di pensiero contrario a questo scempio ambientale in atto. A tal proposito chiediamo al Governatore Occhiuto di tutelare il territorio calabrese . . . Complete story »

Developers pitch new offshore wind projects off Vineyard coast

Four offshore wind energy developers eyeing the water south of the Vineyard submitted new proposals to Massachusetts and other neighboring states last week in an effort to get new wind farms in the ocean within the next several years.

Can ‘clean energy’ schemes get any crazier?

The US Interior Department’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management recently designated two Wind Energy Areas in deepwater areas off the Oregon coast. BOEM is also reviewing offshore wind energy development options for the Gulf of Maine, Central Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, and maybe Great Lakes. They’re part of Team Biden’s plan to deploy 30,000 megawatts of offshore wind energy capacity by 2030 and 15,000 MW of floating offshore wind energy capacity by 2035. Capacity is what the turbines could generate, when . . . Complete story »
