California Coastal Commission needs a reality check

Sunday, January 24th, 2010

No Wind Turbine on the Coast? IDIOTS!

By an 8-to-3 vote, the California Coastal Commission denied a request by a Santa Cruz County couple to install a wind turbine.

Commissioners said the windmill’s blades might hurt birds and the structure could visually mar the area. [The Santa Cruz Sentinel]. 

Visually maring the area?  Gimme a break!

The commission is tossing any flimsy excuse they can into the wind. Wild lions might be attracted. Swarms of locusts could descend upon us…get the picture? It’s also possible it might improve things. Truth is - they don’t know. 

Wind turbines, also known as wind mills, have been part of the American landscape for hundreds of years. They’re part of our heritage. They worked then…and will work now.

Aren’t we as a nation being encouraged to seek alternative energy sources? Wind power is such a source. What is going on with the California Coastal Commission?

Wind turbines along the coast makse sense. Harness the offshore and onshore breezes?  Sounds like a real good natural solution and win-win for the people of California - which is why it rattles the CCC’s cage.

The notion of American self-sufficiency is a huge part of our heritage. It is etched in our DNA…and it’s part of who we are. To be self-sufficient from big oil - the same big oil that paid off, er, I mean, contribuited to environental group EDC last week is in everyone’s interest. Do you think this why many Californians still feel things are going to hell in a handbasket?

Unnecessarily hurting wild birds or any wild animals is truly a sad state of affairs - but what about hurting people?  From the California Coastal Commission’s perspective, based on 30+ year’s of Civil Rights Abuse, hurting Californians isn’t a problem - and that is an even sadder state of affairs

The California Coastal Commission lost its grip on reality a long time ago and needs some mighty serious reform - term limits immediately comes to mind - but that reform is absolutely 100% guaranteed not going to come from within a broken system. 

Until the day things change, nothing will change on the California Coast. Californians will continue to leave the state in droves while the infrastructure continues to crash - which I believe is the ultimate goal of the CCC.

Coastal Turkeys - the real problem with California.
