God gave us oil for a reason!

Sending so much heat back into the atmosphere it fries birds - and that doesn't create more "Goreble warming?"

and BTW this is a Harry Reid project...... that old crook who won't let them store nuclear waste in caves way north of Las Vegas....... is okay with solar farms to pollute our desert, kill our wildlife and use precious water supplies.

Putting five square miles of mirrors in one of the hottest deserts, concentrating reflection at a handful of specific spots and they are surprised this happened?

Archimedes figured this out about twenty-two hundred years ago.

Harry didn't care about any of this, all he saw was dollar signs in the form of filling his and his sons pockets.  The area they placed them is just off one of the Baker Grade between LA and Vegas.. one of the hottest spots in the nation every summer.

Do we really need to have these giant plants first, or is it better to generate solar power on people's roofs, the place it's going to be used?' Connor asked.

I have always argued for point of use wind turbines, solar, and passive.. It's more efficient and consistent with principles of free-market enterprise, independence and liberty.

I agree.  How many homes could they apply solar for the cost of one of these plants.
