Brenda Konkel has analyzed some of them in 4 blog posts – but note that the full final EIS had not yet been published at the time, so there may be more information coming. And the EIS doesn’t mention the enormous cost to taxpayers with profits going to defense contractors, the impact of more military jets on climate change, and the global instability precipitated by an out-of-control arms race. Or the lack of affordable housing in Madison.

How Did the Air National Guard Respond to Madison’s Comments on F-35s? – summary of some responses to comments

What’s New in the Final EIS for siting F-35s in Madison? – Differences I could find between the draft and Final EIS in the Madison section of the document
