This should really make you mad. Remember all those green promises for solar energy made by our current leader? Well, in another example of the incompetent people in power under the current ” Community Organizer” , Acres and acres of prime solar energy land has been swallowed up by big companies which are effectively squatting there.
How did this happen? It’s simple. Poor management and supervision.
The BLM allowed companies to come willy nilly with applications sucking up land and promising to put solar plants there.
Have they done it? Not yet. Five years later, no solar plants and no plans.
Granted this is something which started under the Bush administration but somehow in the transition the powers that be let it slide under the table.
The BLM had a staff of two people to supervise all of this mess and guess what, they flunked big time.
So now we have companies which will most likely never do what they are asked to do. And watch how they will try to sell the land back to the federal government is a few years. Wanna bet they won’t try that?
Meanwhile, there are thousands of horses which have been gathered up and slaughtered while the few remaining running free on public land will most likely be killed for what?
CORPORATE GREED. That’s what.
I urge you to write and call the White House to insist they build those plants soon or use eminent domain laws to take back these lands for the animals.
