|How's this for a daunting issue?|
We just ran across a disturbing article from Fortune
Magazine on CNNMoney.com on the rush to
build solar power projects that could cover hundreds
of thousands of acres of public land.
The land rush is mainly in the Mojave Desert, "where the federal government controls immense stretches of some of the world's best solar real estate right next to the nation's biggest electricity markets."
For those of us who have simply been thinking solar
is a good thing, it's no fun at all to contemplate the
impact these projects could have one some of the
wildest, most ecologically sensitive, most beautiful
lands remaining in this country.
Thanks, members and supporters, for your
