Separating Fact From Fiction

Limousine Liberals Strike Again!

Below I have pasted an amazing quote from this article in The Times about a wind farm receiving resistance from a couple of bad apples in the name of some pretty amazing and disingenuous concerns. I have included it as my comments were #1 among all reader comments and I think capture a couple of angles that pervade the Limousine Liberal community and are eating away at the environmental movement from the inside and from the top down. Why in God’s name or anyone else for that matter would Red States and ultra-conservatives take us seriously or work with us as liberals/environmentalists if we aren’t willing to put our money and sacrifice where our mouth is?

“I remember the sound of silence so palpable, so merciless in its depths, that you could almost feel your heart stop in sympathy,” she said. “Now we are prisoners of sonic effluence. I grieve for the past.”
Seriously shut up and be thankful that your bills are so low and your energy footprint has been cut in half!
You live on an island that requires a ferry to haul you, your guests, grandchildren, food, supplies, etc. which in and of itself is luxurious beyond anything the turbines will do AND yet you complain about 48 decibels? Please this is another case of New England Elites not willing to sacrifice anything FOR anything and having no concept of what being “green” really entails. I find it amazing given the Gulf BP disaster, the countless mine accidents in Appalachia, the slurry spill in Tennessee 2 years ago, and countless other disasters that these people could be so petty about such a crucial demonstration of self-sufficiency. Move off the island if you don’t like the turbines AS your footprint on that island has caused immeasurable ecological damage. Do we truly believe that Lauri David and Al Gore’s quixotic approach to climate change will solve the problem? True sacrifice and cooperation is the only way. Shut up and be grateful!
