Fractivist hypocrisy is blowing in the wind on Planet Ithaca as fracking opponents determined to force us all into renewables fight them in their back yard.
Three years ago, Tony Ingraffea, chief fractivist on Planet Ithaca, co-authored a report. It suggested New York could derive all its all-purpose energy from renewables by 2030. It was premised on 4,250 windmills providing 10% of that energy. That assumption is, as I’ve noted from my own experience with wind projects, incredibly naive. The same people who fight fracking can be counted to also oppose wind when it’s in their back yard. There’s now concrete proof of this fractivist hypocrisy from Planet Ithaca itself.
