April 15. The BLM lists over 50 separate solar, wind and other alternative energy plants being planned in Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon and Wyoming. These plants, if constructed, will literally blanket the West and Southwest with solar panels and windmills. The environmental impact will be devastating to the entire area. The magnitude of this project clarifies exactly why the BLM has been chasing ranchers and just about everyone else out of these rural areas. California has a mandate to achieve up to 33 percent of its energy from “renewable” energy sources by 2020, so a disproportionate number of these new plans target California. But there are dozens in other states. The Moapa Southern Paiute Solar Project described later in this article covers 2,153 acres near the Bundy ranch. According to the BLM, “The project supports president Obama’s New Energy for America plan, which sets a target of 10 percent of U.S. energy be met with renewable energy by 2012 and 25% by 2025.” Did you know that our president has mandated we pay to have 10 to 25 percent of our energy converted to “green” sources?
