Badger Hollow Orders

April 19th, 2019

Yesterday all the Badger Hollow Orders were issued by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission. Here they are:

As of yesterday’s release, there are 20 days to file a Petition for Rehearing, soooooo, lots to do in the next 3 weeks!

YES! The City of New Richmond, WI, had received a zoning change request to allow an ICE detention facility in that town. WHAT?!?! After the one in Pine Island, MN, went south, this was most disturbing to see another pop up. Here’s the short version:

The full press release:

This is the best news today, well, there is that other report released… OK, it’s a toss-up, but THIS IS VERY GOOD NEWS!

Here’s the city analysis of the proposal, and note that after the project proposer read it, they withdrew the application. Scanning the review, the findings are that in each instance, for each section, it “does not meet Evaluation Criterion…” Well, that’s pretty clear.

Here is is, hot off the Federal Register:

The point of this is to push crude oil and natural gas production, to do what it takes to get it to market (regardless of risks); to revise (gut) the Clean Water Act; to renew leases on federal lands that are now on hold; whether there are “trends” in energy investments and whether proxy voting and regulations should be changed; and to determine whether states’ exercising of their rights is a “barrier” to the national energy market.

There’s a lot between the lines, but in essence, the plan is to put tRump energy policy over states’ and sovereign rights, to put market over safety and environmental concerns. The “market” has already decided, so how does he think this will operate, and what of the cost of these market manipulations?
