Let's face it. Building solar facilities on public land in the middle of the desert is not "green". Bulldozers destroying shrubs and trees that have lived for hundreds of years, crushing the burrows of desert tortoises, and shattering once-beautiful vistas is unnecessary. There are plenty of opportunities to build solar in our cities -- they are more efficient, create truly green jobs, and save public land for future generations. If you want to see local solar in action, check out this 90 second video of workers installing solar panels over the parking lot of a football stadium in Washington DC.
