Cuomo: ‘No how, no way’ New York State will allow offshore drilling

At his announcement of the bill Friday afternoon in New York City, Cuomo said the federal plan “will devastate our coastal economies and cause irreparable harm to the environment.” He cited the noise and vibration that accompanies exploration, which he said is greater than a jet engine, as detrimental to all types of marine life. The construction of oil production platforms damages the environment. And the risk of an oil spill and its consequences are too great, he said. “One mistake can literally damage an ecosystem for decades,” Cuomo said. “It is just an unacceptable risk. It is that simple. And it defies common sense. Our belief is the only energy activity offshore should be wind turbines,” Cuomo said. >click to read<10:38

    Referring to oil: “‘A spill would cripple Long Island’s nearly $6 billion tourism industry and devastate New York’s fishing industry’, the governor said.”

    Of course ban drilling, but WTF does the Governor think pounding into the fishing grounds bottom the 100 foot tall “quadrapod bases” for the 650 foot tall wind farm turbines will do…?
