Earlier this year, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo found an effective way to diminish residents’ concerns over renewable energy projects.

He sided with developers to reduce the input of communities hosting wind and solar farms. In the name of expediency, he altered the Article 10 process for approving these projects. With the help of an obedient state Legislature, this was done by eliminating the two local ad hoc representatives who sit on the New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment.

NIMBYism by race and income! Years ago, Robert Moses would bulldoze any poor or black neighborhood for the "good of the commumity". Now that infrastructure is more tuned to the upper income brackets, water views and open land, people object, with laws. Fairness is needed, not draconian tactics used earlier.
