Should Clean Energy Alternatives Be Fast Tracked?

     Not surpringly, clean energy generation is being held up, in many cases, for years, by lawsuits filed by special interests. These are aimed at protecting environment, endangered species, or "not in my backyard" zoning reasons (particularly wind energy and solar.)

Recently, the government fast tracked the southern border fence, by giving it priority over zoning and environmental protection laws and the like. The question is, should a similar fast-tracking approach be taken to speed up the development of alternative clean energy solutions, since these will decrease the use of fossil fuels and the resultant pollutants and environmental damages caused by fossil fuel usage.

Yes. Fast track.
No maintain protections
Not sure

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
