I continue to see news articles and commentaries about reforming the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) that do not mention labor unions as practitioners of “greenmail,” that is, objecting to proposed projects and activities on environmental grounds to achieve economic objectives unrelated to the environment (such as Project Labor Agreements).
My article today in www.FlashReport.org, Highlighting the Top Union Abuses of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), reports that journalists, political columnists, and opinion writers are more frequently referring to union CEQA abuse. In addition, I provide extensive documentation (with hyperlinks to primary source documents) for the top union CEQA objections in 2012 and 2013.
My top pick for the worst CEQA abuse of 2012 was against the San Diego Convention Center Expansion Phase 3 – see www.SanDiegoConventionCenterScam.com for more information.
My top pick for the worst CEQA abuse of 2013 (so far) is against two proposed geothermal power plants in Mono County – see www.PhonyUnionTreeHuggers.com for more information.
