According to jetcat4445, the individual kind enough to post this little ditty to youtube, the gentleman speaking is John Calaway from Ecogen, an LLC involved in industrial wind. I saw his name connected with Babcock and Brown, but hey with his charm he could be working anywhere.
Anyway, it seems Mr. Calaway is tired of dealing with the local flunkies who actually have the most to lose when his taxpayer subsidized tinker toys are plopped in their midst. The following youtube clip shows him addressing the New York State PSC in an effort to remove these locals, who are obviously in over their heads and should just clam up, from the decision making process on issues that will impact their lives for decades to come. He seems to think that it’s a burden on the locals to have to decide what’s best for them. Yeah … me too! I want my state government telling me what’s best for me.
I came away from watching this with a new definition for arrogance – John Calaway. But then, I kinda like participating in my life. How about you?
Enjoy the clip. My favorite part starts about 2:40 in. Send a comment if you care to, and let us know your favorite part.
