New York Renewable Power Plan is a pipe dream

 Robert Howarth, a Cornell ecology professor, suggested last month the state could get half its power from wind and enough from solar, tidal and other forms of clean energy to replace fossil fuels by 2030.
New York would need about $382 billion and wind turbines covering an area equivalent to 13 percent of the state’s land mass if it followed a Cornell University plan to derive all of its power from renewables.[Bloomberg]

It may well be a pipe dream, but sadly there is political support for working towards this goal. It seems we have evolved to a point where all of our elected State officials and agency heads are either stupid, or on drugs.

What other explanation could justify creating a permitting process that robs local municipalities of the power to enforce their own land use laws,for the sake of such an absurd scam that is the NYState Renewable Power Plan.

Hell, this whole paper was a numbers crunching spreadsheet. It never considered people.

If you want to really get looney, lets start thinking about saving the planet by traveling less, eating less, being less active, turning the heat down, turning the AC off, using a bike, screwing less, having fewer kids, stopping welfare assistance and aid, waging more war, instituting the death penalty for minor offenses, using drone strikes to clear traffic jams, cut off cooling to nukie plants, use agent orange on the Amazon, force everyone to live in Utah, ban clothing, replace circumcision with linguectomy, and give everyone a pet goat.

Now that's progress Professor Howarth.

"Linguectomy" ? You got me there, had to look that one up.

Your nifty little comedic list of suggestions comes close, but I have to say after reading it a few times, even it makes more sense than the NEW York State Renewable Power Plan.
