The media has ignored a plan by the Biden administration to confiscate public lands to erect massive solar farms.
Last Sept., Interior Secretary Deb Haaland announced plans to dedicate tens of thousands of untouched public lands to erect massive new solar farms, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
“The Biden administration’s plan would expand on an Obama-era agreement that spurred solar developments in six southwestern states, some of which piqued the ire of locals and environmentalists. The Bureau of Land Management now wants to relax the initial deal’s development restrictions and expand solar developments into five additional states,” the Beacon reported.
Conservationists, though are not happy with thee plans to use undeveloped lands for useless solar farms.
A Nevada conservationist who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon on condition of anonymity said that a planned 26,000 acre solar farm in the state’s desert has residents worried. “It’s armageddon for those of us who live out here,” he said, noting that the massive solar farms are an eyesore for nearby residents and also emit heat and blinding glares.
Solar power is practically useless for greater use, of course. Currently less than 3 percent of U.S. power is generated by solar.
California, which derives more power from solar than any other state, still hasn’t been able to stop its rolling blackouts and its soaring energy costs.
