Global heating is the greatest challenge of our time. While we know what is causing the global heating problem, and we know how to fix it, certain environmentalists pose a severe threat to the great hope of renewable energy that must be part of the solution to global heating. All across the United States those claiming to speak for the environment are filing legal actions against developers of solar and wind projects. They are using environmental laws, zoning laws, and anything else they can latch onto to fight renewable energy projects. This is the very definition of folly. We environmental lawyers have perfected the art of slowing down, burdening, and questioning to death developers. It was a great strategy for fighting the bad guys. But it is now presenting one of the biggest threats to the good guys, and to our environment. We now need to learn how to say “yes.”
