I Told You So
A few years ago, I predicted that eventually environmentalists would turn against solar:
There is a strong possibility that solar energy may render other forms of nuclear energy unnecessary. In that case we anti-environmentalist wackos should advocate nuclear energy anyway. When we advocate nukes, the Greens talk about solar. When we advocate solar, the Greens advocate abandoning industrial civilization.For some reason, an environmentalist objected to that:
Spoken like a true anti-environmental loonie. There is no logic to your vitriol, you are driven strictly by hate.More recently, environmentalists have sued to stop solar projects:
A solar project could turn the desert into a desert!
A U.S. conversation group has sued the federal government over its approval of a major solar power plant in the California desert, the latest in a string of challenges to the nation's renewable energy goals from the environmental community.
According to court papers, the non-profit Western Watersheds Project alleged U.S. regulators approved Brightsource Energy's 370-megawatt Ivanpah solar energy plant without conducting adequate environmental reviews, and asked the court to order the defendants to withdraw their approvals.
As for environmentalists claiming we must abandon industrial civilization, they are not hard to find.
