Google Being Evil?

About: the $2.2 billion bird-scorching solar project - wsj.com

Environmental mixed emotions, eh? Of course Google in in the hands of current administration so this will be celebrated today in the midst of the icy weather.

A giant solar-power project officially opening this week in the California desert is the first of its kind, and may be among the last, in part because of growing evidence that the technology it uses is killing birds.

U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz is scheduled to speak Thursday at an opening ceremony for the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating Station, which received a $1.6 billion federal loan guarantee.

The $2.2 billion solar farm, which spans over five square miles of federal land southwest of Las Vegas, includes three towers as tall as 40-story buildings. Nearly 350,000 mirrors, each the size of a garage door, reflect sunlight onto boilers atop the towers, creating steam that drives power generators.

...
Fuck the birds unless they are eagles or peregrine falcons!
