Bush: Solar Plants Threaten Precious Desert Lands

Faced with a surge in the number of proposed solar power plants, the federal government has placed a moratorium on new solar projects on public land until it studies their environmental impact, which is expected to take about two years.

Seriously? Wow.

It’s astonishing how distorted a sense of timing it seems possible to have.

I’m sure that the desert environment shouldn’t be treated differently from any other, but the time to have done these studies was a few years ago, not just when these renewable energy projects are now imminent and are going to prove incredibly valuable. Contrast this with Bush’s keenness to protect oil areas in Alaska or offshore or his record on global warming. An incredibly mischievous, but typical, decision from the worst Presidency the US has ever had to suffer, he is protecting his paymasters, the oil and gas industry. .

Wow! This is an unbelievably blatant attempt to scuttle plans to replace carbon based energy sources. I’m starting to lose the ability to differentiate the oil industry from the mafia. And we seem to have Fredo as the president of the US.
