Desert tortoises & industrial solar

via Coyote Crossing.

Industrial solar developments are being fast-tracked by the California Energy Commission (CEC). These huge developments are planned for construction on public lands in Mohave Desert wild lands. Projects in the Ivanpah Valley and other areas of the Mojave desert threaten endangered desert tortoises, rare plants, and tax scarce local water supplies. There’s nothing remotely “green,” “sustainable,” or “renewable” about these projects.
