Collaboration is Needed for Responsible Renewable Energy Development

“It seems there is no dearth of negative articles about insensitive solar developers and here is yet another one in in the LA times this week. The article says that, because of the impacts of very large solar projects on the desert environment and on Native American burial sites, solar developers, federal and state governments and Native American tribes are headed for a showdown of complicated and competing values.

These developers are giving all developers a bad name. We don’t need fast track permitting from the government to push gigantic solar developments in environmental and historic areas. And we actually don’t need Federal loan guarantees. What we do need is an understanding that we are tied together with the same goal of respecting the world we live in. And, we need to come up with policies that will support the generation of renewable energy where we need it: close to load centers, in or near urban areas, on roof tops, parking lots, landfills and brown fields. We need generation close to where the power is to be used, in areas that are already developed, which aren’t ecologically, culturally or historically sensitive.

The article raises a false dichotomy, a Hobson’s choice, framing the question as if we can have renewable energy or be sensitive to Native American concerns or environmental concerns. By developing solar and other renewables in urban and suburban areas, we can have our renewable energy without sacrificing other important needs and interests.

Government, tribes and developers can and should work together to come up with the best solution …distributed renewable energy generation done with the least possible negative impacts.”

Discovery of Indian Artifacts Complicates Genesis Solar Project by Louis Sahagun, Los Angeles Times

The Feb. 27 letter from the chairman of the Colorado River Indian Tribes was pleading and tough. It asked President Obama to slow the federal government’s “frantic pursuit” of massive solar energy projects in the Mojave Desert because of possible damage to Native American cultural resources.

The Obama administration didn’t respond. But four days after Chairman Eldred Enas sent the letter, the Indians say they found an answer, delivered by spirits of the desert.

Howling winds uncovered a human tooth and a handful of burned bone fragments the size of quarters on a sand dune in the shadow of new solar power transmission towers. Indians say the discovery is evidence of a Native American cremation site not detected in Southern California Edison’s archaeological survey before the towers were built.

  1. Cool. I spent a long time looking for relevant content and found that your article gave me new ideas, which is very helpful for my research. I think my thesis can be completed more smoothly. Thank you.

  2. I have read your article carefully and I agree with you very much. This has provided a great help for my thesis writing, and I will seriously improve it. However, I don’t know much about a certain place. Can you help me?

  4. Needless to say, fans of the San Francisco Giants started celebrating, but the news also reached an audience interested less for emotional reasons than for financial reasons. Undoubtedly, some sharp bettors perusing Twitter late at night jumped into the Giants’ futures markets, hoping to snag a quick advantage before the odds fell. The Los Angeles Dodgers have the best odds to win the 2022 World Series one day into the offseason at +500, according to our partner, PointsBet. Chris Archer (2-6, 4.02 ERA) starts for Minnesota but he’s been held to a 5.0 IP cap all season. The Twins have gotten just 4.0 and 5.0 IP from starters so far this series so they by far have the more taxed bullpen heading into the series finale. When Archer is in he’s been solid though, allowing 2 ER or less in three of his last four.

  8. Pentapeptide-3 is an anti-wrinkle ingredient that is very potent. It has been proven to reduce wrinkling by 49%. The primary use of Pentapeptide-3 was for the decrease in Crow’s feet wrinkles, but it has now been found to be effect on other facial wrinkles. Studies have found Pentapeptide-3 to be effective in anti-aging problems. It is been tested in creams and has similar results to Botox in partially paralyzing the muscles and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.Pentapeptide-3 stimulates the “matrix” layers in the skin — primarily collagen and fibronectin. When stimulated, the skin produces more collagen. Loss of collagen is what leads to thinning skin and the wrinkling of newly inelastic skin.
