Opposition to, complaints about, and lawsuits filed against "green energy" projects – hydrogen, solar, and wind developments as well as "conflict minerals" mining – continues to increase throughout the U.S. including by environmental groups. Legislation as well as lawsuits are stopping some development. In fact, last month a lawsuit led to two turbines being demolished in Massachusetts. Additionally, leaders overseas are warning against the Biden Administration's rush to eliminate fossil fuels in favor of green energy sources. That alone should worry more Americans.
Green energy projects face stark environmental, local opposition nationwide
International Climate Science Coalition Executive Director Tom Harris discusses how he was once a climate alarmist but now sees it as a scam on 'The Ingraham Angle.'
Green energy development is facing increasing grassroots opposition nationwide over concerns regarding projects' impact on the environment and local communities.
In recent years, proponents have aggressively pushed clean energy alternatives as part of their broader goal to reach net-zero emissions and transition away from fossil fuel energy in the U.S. and abroad. But wind turbines, solar farms, hydropower projects and critical mineral production – all key parts of the clean energy push – have all faced resistance in the form of environmental lawsuits, legal petitions and local movements.
