In “Coal-Backed Anti-Wind Guru Barrels into Ohio’s Seneca County to Attack Wind Energy,” Scott Peterson, executive director of Checks and Balances Project, “an investigative blog that seeks to hold government officials, lobbyists and corporate management accountable to the public,” goes after one regular citizen, Kevon Martis.
Citizen Martis is very well respected here at MasterResource, as evidenced by these posts:
- Enough! Martis Responds to Sinclair re Industrial Wind (March 5, 2018)
- Wind Siting Rules: Kevon Martis Testimony to the Ohio Power Siting Board (June 9, 2016)
- Citizen Martis to Ohio Lawmakers: Repeal the Renewable-Energy Mandate (January 27, 2014)
- Testimony Against Industrial Wind Power: Martis before the Ohio Senate and House PUCs (January 8, 2014)
And recall his 2013 post “Dear Michigan: Why Wind?” where he quoted James Hansen: “Suggesting that renewables will let us phase rapidly off fossil fuels in the United States, China, India, or the world as a whole is almost the equivalent of believing in the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy.”…
