Sacrificing the desert to save the Earth
Environmentalists are torn over the high cost of breaking reliance on fossil fuels. Public comment has been sought, but insiders are calling the shots.
The three page piece found at LA Times was a very interesting read. It offers the reader,any reader of any political stripe imo, a chance to view the myriad of hot points wrapped up in the climate change,greenie,political scandal hosing of taxpayers landscape.
Seriously the article takes an honest look and lays it out there in a rather surprising nonjudgmental fashion.
Jobs? Not really.The cornerstone solar project found in the article ponies up 1000 construction/ancillary jobs but the functioning plant scores 86.
Rush to build and save America? Not really.Pretty clearly stated that there was indeed a rush to get permits but more so to hold as tradable assets down the road. Also very telling how skewed the tax and rates picture is very gray.
National environmental groups honest? Not really. The nats have scolded the locals who care about the local environment in a Big Brother knows best green fascist kind of way,no surprise there but…
A grand solution? Not really.The cost,and I don’t necessarily mean $$’s here, the environment is potentially paying for green projects is one that I’m unsure is being truly analyzed. That’s just as sad for a green project as it would be for a fossil project,the hypocrisy is insane.
