    He was one of the scum who oversaw their election stealing.

    Ottawa Impact is so incompetent, the Kallman group is asking the state Supreme Court to intervene on Adrienne Hambley's termination.

    i, for one, should be more careful with that. The two are often confused, usually to the detriment of us Daks.

    In Michigan, Gov. Whitmer is poised to sign a bill which would commit the state to 100% clean energy by 2040, 60% of which must come from renewable sources. The bill would also give Lansing the ability to overrule local land use/zoning rules via an appeals process in cases of disputes over renewable energy development. Some aging farmers want to bank their retirements on leasing their land for further wind & solar farm development. Their more...*ahem* provincially-minded neighbors have been successfully NIMBYing (with outside help) to get local governments to fiddle with zoning ordinances to put a freeze these projects and ultimately shut them down. There's a pretty good Detroit Free Press article on all of this, but of course it's for subscribers only so I won't bother linking it.

    The bill contains provisions for a wind or solar developer to first negotiate with the local government for up to 120 days to try to reach a mutual agreement. The two sides can mutually agree to extend that period for another 120 days. Only if or when an agreement doesn't happen would the state get involved, unless a township wants to defer to the state process by default. Township-imposed restrictions on a renewable energy project for things such as setbacks can be no more restrictive than the state's rules, unless both the township and the developer agree to it.

    I can understand the desire not to have an 800-acre farm full of 600-ft tall wind turbines next door to you. However given its importance to national security and the overall economy, I think energy policy matters are a bigger issue and renewables development should be considered critical energy infrastructure, just like powerlines and utilities pipelines. A handful of pissy local yokels with "Let's Go Brandon" plastered on the back of their F-150s shouldn't be able to completely shut down clean energy developments in their area without any discussion or compromise. The Free Press article even cited a conservative renewables advocacy group who sidesteps the environmental aspects to advance the same arguments about national security and economic opportunity. This group also scolded the outside agitators who have banded the yokels together to bully and intimidate local governments, planning commissions, and even business owners who support these projects.
    I want to build nuclear plants along with the wind turbines. But y'know not going to happen...
