Feinstein Kills Solar and Wind Farms

Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-CA, who chairs the Senate subcommittee that oversees the Interior Department, has killed plans to build 13 multi-million dollar solar plants and wind farms on a million acres in California’s Mojave Desert.

Feinstein’s move will severely complicate California’s impracticable effort to obtain a third of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020.

The desert land was bought for nearly $45 million in private funds and $18 million in federal funds by an environmental group, which then donated it to the federal government for the purpose of conservation. (You have to give them credit here. Instead of demanding that taxpayers buy the land, these Greenies raised the money privately and purchased the land. That is honorable.)

In 2005, President Bush (the anti-green President) ordered that renewal energy production be fast-tracked on all public lands including the Mojave, which is among the sunniest in the nation.

“This is arguably the best solar land in the world, and Senator Feinstein shouldn’t be allowed to take this land off the table without a proper and scientific environmental review,” said Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Union officials who were joyfully contemplating the creation of thousands of “green” construction jobs aren’t too happy with Feinstein, either.

  1. Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-CA is an Idiot!

    I do hope her home is the first to suffer from brown outs and black outs when demand exceeds supply!
