Feinstein: Don’t Spoil Our Desert With Solar Panels

California’s Mojave Desert may seem ideally suited for solar energy production, but concern over what several proposed projects might do to the aesthetics of the region and its tortoise population is setting up a potential clash between conservationists and companies seeking to develop renewable energy.

Nineteen companies have submitted applications to build solar or wind facilities on a parcel of 500,000 desert acres, but Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Friday such development would violate the spirit of what conservationists had intended when they donated much of the land to the public.

Feinstein said Friday she intends to push legislation that would turn the land into a national monument, which would allow for existing uses to continue while preventing future development.

So, we’re going to bankrupt the coal industry. . .

And we can’t drill for our own oil . . .

And Obama’s sitting on Yucca Mountain, running out the clock on nuclear power . . .

And now no Democrat wants solar panels or wind turbines in their backyard. What’s left, spitballs?

See a trend here? What good is the mythical ‘smart’ power grid if there’s no power generation source to connect it to?
