The green movement can't decide if they want deserts or wind power. Someone needs to tell them that choices have costs and that they do not live in the Garden of Eden.
John Fund in the Wall Street Journal says placing wind power in the Mohave Desert is being stopped by environmentalists who are afraid of hurting the desert turtle.
There are "130 pending applications for solar power projects on federal land administered by the Bureau of Land Management . . . environmentalists are blocking such plants by demanding time-consuming environmental-impact studies. . . applications are still being clogged up in a bureaucratic pipeline and no new permits have been issued to date."
