One Response to Offshore Wind Litigation: Court Declines to Halt Vineyard Wind Construction

  1. Susan says:

    BOEM does not represent the citizens but the administration and are complicit in the killing of sea life and the destruction of the East Coast. They have blood on their hands. The Federal and State government does not have the right to lease the ocean to Europe. It’s pollution and Global Warming is made by humans concreting the world with no feelings for wildlife. Europe has no wildlife it’s all buildings and perfect farm land. It’s a perfect world for people only. Go visit the concrete.
