NIMBY Rich Beach Community Stupidity

Agelbert NOTE: The article, accidentally on purpose, I suspect, attempts to invert reality by falsely equating action against fossil fuel industry planet polluting mayhem with action by the rich against offshore wind power renewable energy infrastructure. It is disingenuous to claim these rich bastards are just "worried about the view", while "forgetting"   to mention the (SEE: TRUE MOTIVATION for legal action against Renewable Energy Infrastructure) FACT that the rich have a GIANT conflict of interest against renewable energy BECAUSE they ALL OWN a HUGE amount stock in 🦕 fossil fuel 😈 corporations.
 
Other than that, the article is important reading for people who still don't realize what a danger to human society the greedy rich, who continue to defend the 🦕 fossil fuel based biosphere degrading status quo, are.

New Jersey Amps Up Fight Against 🎩😈🦕 Beachside Towns Opposed to Offshore Wind

SNIPPETS:

“We’re not going to let NIMBYism shut this down,” said state Senator Stephen Sweeney, a sponsor of the legislation and New Jersey’s highest-ranking lawmaker. He added that some 🦕 residents of Ocean City, a hotbed of opposition in the state, told him they could kill offshore wind. “Ocean City doesn’t get to make the decision for the entire state of New Jersey on a policy initiative. 🎩🦕 They just don’t.”
 
Orsted, the world’s biggest developer of offshore wind power, plans to build the Ocean Wind 1 project between 15 and 27 miles off Atlantic City and connect it to the electrical grid through buried power lines in both Ocean City and Island Beach State Park.

“The majority of the people are against the wind mills," said Ocean City councilman Keith Hartzell. “Everybody thought it would be up to us to decide whether the transmission lines came through Ocean City. " ... ...

Local  residents in the 🎩😈🦖 well-off  Hamptons town of Wainscott, New York, have targeted another Orsted development called South Fork Wind, filing a lawsuit in February against the project and the town board over a high-voltage cable that would land at the town beach and then run underneath town streets to a new substation. And the Block Island Wind Farm off the coast of Rhode Island, developed by General Electric Co. and Alstom SA, also faced opposition because of power cables running through the town of Narragansett.
