Petition to Stop Ivanpah

BrightSource Energy LLC's plans to bulldoze 5.6 square miles of pristine desert habitat on public land is expected to displace or kill 140 desert tortoises.  The number of tortoises thriving on this land is a testament to the habitat quality and biodiversity on the site, but the environmental costs were ignored by the Department of Interior, headed by Secretary Ken Salazar, during a faulty approval process for the BrightSource's Ivanpah Solar Energy Generating System.

Sign the petition now to tell Secretary Salazar to hault construction at Ivanpah and keep solar panels on rooftops, and off of tortoise habitat!
