illegal dumping, and trespass
livestock grazing; wildfire; and weed
infestation. Existing burned areas,
unauthorized roads and trails, and
areas disturbed by other activities
await funding for rehabilitation.
Neutralizing these threats and
restoring altered ecological systems
are the focus of the regional
mitigation proposed for this area. ............
No one is going to like what I say here.
I make no defense of Reid... we all know people who seek power and money suck.
But... what are we actually supposed to do? I'm listening to Alex scream... "The Chi Coms" and it's honestly this derogatory racist rant. China is gigantic and has 1.5 Billion people, the only way America will compete with them is if we each work as hard a 5 Chinese, they are going to own a lot of stuff...
Then we sit here and scream about Fukusima and the environment and here is a power line and a solar plant... but to do it they have to run through Methane producing land wasting cattle... so the govt is being heavy handed.
we can't have our cake and eat it too... technology comes and changes things, I am reading a lot about families with "hundreds of years of holdings" to their freakin cow space today... and lol, how the hell is that good for the rest of us? it's just as bad as the fed holding and taking land (almost, maybe I dunno) I think it's a great thing IF you can keep something in the family for generations, but do I actually want solar held back, regardless of who owns it... for a guys ranch?
I think... living where I do in AZ, I'd prefer if San Onofrio followed by Palo Verde Nuclear plants closed because, well... radioactive Cattle sucks and we have a Nuke plant in Cali right on a fault line just like Fuku
Give this guy some cash and send him on his way... sometimes some things need to be done.
Harry Reid is a typical, political dirt sack. A Chinese Corp gets a $5 Billion contract? Lame. Aren't there any American solar companies?
I'm a bit confused how this solar farm area has any thing to do with the Bundy Ranch. They look to be 30 miles or more away from each other. I brought a map.
* The open circle for the location of the cattle is small. I just put it over the old Bunkerville Allotment and gently spilling into the Gold Butte Area--who knows how far they are truly spread about.edit on 4/12/2014 by Olivine because: clarify, like butter
