    WASHINGTON -- California's Mojave Desert may seem ideally suited for solar energy production, but concern over what several proposed projects might do to the aesthetics of the region and its tortoise population is setting up a potential clash between conservationists and companies seeking to develop renewable energy.

    Nineteen companies have submitted applications to build solar or wind facilities on a parcel of 500,000 desert acres, but Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Friday such development would violate the spirit of what conservationists had intended when they donated much of the land to the public.

    Feinstein said Friday she intends to push legislation that would turn the land into a national monument, which would allow for existing uses to continue while preventing future development.

    Bit of a broad brush there Willow. I love the idea of Nuclear and have supported it for most my life (since I learned about it) and I know many Democrat supporters who do.

    So then we can say all Republicans are christofreaks intent on putting us back into the Dark Ages.

    Or we can live in reality where our CURRENT President is against Nuclear energy, and the democrats in Congress are against nuclear. A President that plans to bankrupt the coal fired power plants and gas fired plants as well as natural gas. Is against Nuclear and insists GREEN is the wave of the future.

    And then we get his own party ensuring no green gets built in any meaningful manner anywhere at all.

    Great attempt at deflections though.

    And yet your previous post was nothing more than a blatant attempt to run interference for this administration. Once again you stupid shit, OBAMA and the Democrats are opposed to Nuclear, and you and your couple friends do not change that. He has STATED he is against Nuclear as has the leadership of the Congress. He has STATED in plans to bankrupt Coal plants and that he intends to rape gas and natural gas plants as well.

    And what do we get? We get HIS party, you know, the DEMOCRATS, opposing all efforts to create GREEN energy. No wind and no solar.

    And we have you claiming otherwise.

    This is hilarious.

    You know Obama's wind farms will be blocked because those blades will chop butterflies and birds to bits

    Wait a minute.

    They're talking about land that was bought and paid for to be set aside as conservation lands, right?

    What?

    Don't you guys BELIEVE in the sanctity of contracts?

    The government doesn't believe in the sanctity of contracts so why should we?
