Governor Moonbeam heroically presses on:
Gov. Jerry Brown has vowed to "crush" opponents of solar projects. At the launch of a solar farm near Sacramento, the governor pledged: "It's not easy. There are gonna be screw-ups. There are gonna be bankruptcies. There'll be indictments and there'll be deaths. But we're gonna keep going and nothing's gonna stop me."

They left out the part about the utilities being forced to buy their unreliable power at three times the price of other power. All ratepayers get stuck with that bill. My local power company fights a hidden and never-ending battle to avoid buying unreliable power at retail rates or 3x wholesale rates. But Obama and his energy department are going to make it harder and harder to avoid.

Solar is cost-effective only with subsidies, which means that it’s not cost-effective.
California Liberal creed in action:
Replace what works (Coal-Nuclear-Gas) with something that sounds good (Wind-Solar).

This dynamics reassembles third world complaints where a huge corporation come in and develop natural resources to make a cheap product. Few of the residents benefit with jobs and are left with less of the natural resources for themselves.

No one thinks anymore!
More infrastructure is always needed.
Any construction project will come with a pot of gold.
Pro sports enrich the towns they play in.
Alternative energy works just as good as the real stuff.
The list goes on and on.

(Workers and consumers are, of course, identical.)
“Since the 19th century the sparsely populated county has worked to attract industries shunned by others, including gold, tungsten and salt mining.”
That blatant anti-mining bias taints the rest of the article.
(BTW, it’s a lot easier to “shun” gold, tungsten and salt mines; if you don’t happen to have any gold, tungsten or salt to mine.)

DiFi and the Sierra Club blocked a 500MW solar plant in the Mojave Desert.
The truth is, they don’t want energy solutions, they want people to go away, as though earth “thriving without man” were some utopia to be sought after.
