LEEDCo Challenged & Exposed

The legal challenges by John Stock on behalf of the Bratenahl residents, and ABC and BSBO, will take a serious bite out of Great Lakes industrialization. As I noted previously:

The exaggerations and misrepresentations of this application to construct are many.  These include: no biologically significant harm to wildlife; birds do not fly over the lake; and super-luminous lures of jobs and power supply. Of course, the proposal is layered in the meme that the climate (really weather) can be mitigated by this and other such projects given less reliance on coal or fossil fuels.

Read key elements of lawyer Bill Eubanks’ Memo here. One can see that LEEDCo is in deep eco-trouble.

Dear friends,

Please circulate as you see fit, and also we appreciate your comments, which keeps a good conversation of the ten year plus story to the fore. Often, there is more information and perspective in the comments than in the post!

Please also note that this Thursday, the 17th, the OPSB will address Case 16 1871 EL BGN, LEEDCo/Icebreaker, again, possibly to renew its commitment to “feather” eight months of the year and other conditions, (or other). We obviously are hoping for and anticipating a HOLD in its first list of conditions.

Important to note as mentioned in this post, that greedy multinational wind developers are eyeing the LEEDCo decisions carefully, with respect to Governor Cuomo’s aspirations, we might add, unreasonable and frankly ridiculous, aspirations.

Please also see /hear below the radio ads in play this week in Cleveland.  One example below attached. Paid for by Boat Ohio Foundation. Go to DEFEND LAKE ERIE DOT COM to continue to express your dismay/objection to this project. 

It is our belief that the green devotees, simply do not have the facts. Let’s give them facts, again and again, because we know that doubling down on fictions is the only way.  

THE REALITY: BILLIONS OF FLYING CREATURES PASS OVER THE LAKE TWICE A YEAR.

The Great Lakes as is known, are a blend of richness of natural habitat, food, and restoration at the other side, as creatures  make their way across, in the tens of millions, some say in the hundreds of millions, twice a year. Brad Steinberg of Ontario Canada, counts it as “billions” on the migration super highways. For an overview of the high octane migration action, seasonally portrayed, see Bird Watchers Digest, fall.  As many as 20,000 Broad Wing Hawks in one day, September 2002.
