Janine has an article in the latest edition of the Desert Report, an excellent periodical put out by the California-Nevada Desert Committee.
In it, she explains the myth of the congressional "mandate" that is driving industrial-scale solar development of our desert public lands, and provides an overview of the policies and politics at work. It is an instructive example of how rhetoric, corporate power, and our often facile approach to problems can have vast consequences.
Janine's article starts on page 12. Please check out the other content, too. The writings add to our understanding of and concern about our rich and enigmatic desert ecosystems.
