Radical Enviromentalism Prevents Infrastructure Modernization


Recommended Posts

America has hundreds of infrastructure upgrades planned and even funded but no work has started yet many of these projects have partial stimulus funding that American Recovery and Reinvestment act of 2009 thr 787 billion thats well over a trillion and still counting.

 

When Obama was touting his jobs bill he constantly mentioned that most of Americas bridges are structurally deficient or unsafe yet hundreds of projects are proposed anf funded sitting in legal limbo.

 

In America some time ago we tied our hands federally and made it almost impossible to build anything in America through the process of enviromental impact studies and we left the meaning so open ended that legal challenges are allowed for the most insignificant reasons and must languish years even decades in the court system.

Do you have (even one) real example of this?

I have several the most notable is a wind farm off Cape Cod Massachusettes apparently green energy is not allowed in the backyards of Elite Liberals despite telling us what kind of energy is acceptable.

 

 

Another standout example is the Bayonne Bridge nearly 100 years old the bridge is a major route across New w York and New Jersey yet the bridge is not only congested but too low to handle modern freighter ships. After many legal challenges the New York New Jersey Port Authority cancelled plans to build a new bridge and consulted an enginierring fir to refurbish the same exact bridge just raising the height about 5 feet needed to accomodate the bigger ships but abunch of communities filed sui over increased traffic and emissions over the improved bridge and a native american tribe who hasnt lived in the area for centuries has filed suit over an ancient buriel ground despite the bridge already existing.

A wind farm? This is infrastructure to you?

Because our law allows for meaningless arguments to be adressed currently several New Jersey communities are citing increased diesel soot from the ships, railroads, and traffic associated with increased shipping activities might hurt asthmatic children yet we are talking New York City area where a perpetual haze constantly hangs over the sky.

Yes. How DARE people fight to prevent their children from being poisoned.

We should pave the entire country so you can get to work five minutes faster. Call your congress-persons today.

 

It would create lots of jobs but unfortunateley if we passed a law and funded it tomorrow it would be held up in the courts for decades thanks to enviromental assessments.

Really the few extra ships and trains are going to make a difference have you ever been to New York City or are you even familiar with New Jersey's Chemical Coast that lies directly down river yeah some extra diesel exhaust makes all the difference here?

They're finally building the world's largest solar thermal plant in California after a decade of environazis fighting it because it might harm a tortoise that's endangered because it's primary defense mechanism is to piss all over itself and commit suicide every time a predator comes near it.

That's the WHOLE point of the thread.

Exactly while the majority support these projects our federal government allows these obscenely meaningless challenges to languish in the courts and by the time these pprojects finally get off the ground the prices has doubled or tripled.

 

Where'd she go?

I am still waiting for you to address these the offshore windfarm off Cape Cod aren't you greenies all about green energy and reducing carbon emissions?

The construction of offshore windfarms has nothing to do with the OP.

It's pretty amazing. I'm not a con or a lib, share ideas from both camps, but, most of all, there's right and wrong. The same people who cheerlead to allow business to do whatever they want are champions for oil and gas companies, that care absolutely nothing for them, and cheerlead fracking: they're own water supplies are in danger of a number of carcinogenic chemicals being introduced.

 

Wonder how conservative or liberal they'll feel when their neighborhood and family start experiencing an epidemic of nosebleeds, cancers and other serious diseases? Who is so stupid to let their politics poison the air they breathe with such as benzene or the water they drink, with this and a number of very dangerous chemicals? Who waves a flag, while they pump poisons into the air and water table? If this or is this not cutting off one's own nose, and for what? Some oil or gas executive, who'll sell their product to Japan? Where is the basic morality of anybody who would poison his countrymen for a buck, and anybody who would shill for such people? Is that just dumb and blind or what?

Like in my state. The Republican gubmint thinks it's not patriotic to object to hog feces and urine:

 

N.C. Hog Farm Neighbors File Nuisance Complaints
By Will Michaels

 

Hundreds of people in eastern North Carolina have filed nuisance complaints against Smithfield Foods about the way hog farmers dispose of their waste.

 

A Wake County court received nearly 600 complaints last week. They claim Smithfield and its independent contractors are polluting creeks. They also say the stench from hog waste is a detriment to nearby homes.

 

"They can pump their feces in the ground and spray it in the air. They don't keep that odor and the toxic gases there. They let them float onto my land and other people's land," said Don Webb, one of the complainants and a former hog farmer who now lives near a hog farm in Wilson County. "A good American would never stink up another American's home with feces and urine."

 

A spokeswoman for Smithfield Foods says the company is evaluating the complaints. North Carolina law calls for both sides to participate in a mediation process. State lawmakers are considering bills that would ban residents who are new to hog farm areas to file nuisance lawsuits.

 

Hog crap and urine, fracked-up drinking water and air, coming soon to your neighborhood. Poison, death and decay: it's the American way! Yeehaw!

They're talking about a developer coming in, buying cheap land, building homes, selling those homes, and then the residents complaining about how the house they just bought right next to a hog farmer smells like pig shit.

 

It's the same as someone buying a home next to a freeway complaining about the noise.

Do not forget that Smithfield will soon be owned by the Chinese - if the gummint approves of the acquisition.

 

I wonder if the new law will apply to US-owned companies, or all of 'em.

I don't know, but, for sure, them Chinese commies will be allowed to spread hog feces from one end of the countryside to the other, and will get a limo in the 4th of July parade, as long as they obey that highest law of the land, the payment of the bribe, oops, I mean, the campaign contribution.

Is that why Bush and the RepubliCONS allowed the infrastructure to crumble?

Yeah, developers are lined up around the block here, to get permits to build a new development next to Smithfield. Why not? Surely, those homes will sell out, before they even break ground, one whiff of the air, and people just fall in love... also read that on the Americans for Bacon website... LOL!

Now you sir are just a liar or completely ignorant I mean seriously electricity production and the grid is not infrastructure. I'm about to say something really bad but I as am not going to lower myself to that level so I'll leave it at that but please think about what you just said.
