'It’s Armageddon': Media Silent on Biden
Admin Plan to Snatch Public Land For Solar Farms

Original Article

Posted By: GustoGrabber, 1/21/2023 6:12:42 AM

In December 2022, Interior Secretary Deb Haaland announced that her department would expedite plans to build solar energy farms on up to 100 million acres of untouched public land in five Western states, in a bid to "tackle climate change." The announcement has garnered little to no national attention, save for the occasional report that the Biden administration is expanding renewable energy production. National outlets took a far more critical approach to Trump-era land use proposals. "

Solar eats up vast areas of land. Maybe we should follow the science and do some studies on the climate effects of changing the desert's albedo and the destruction of kangaroo rat, burrowing owl and desert tortoise habitat? Oh, yeah - research money only goes to approved projects that support the grantor's intentions.

People should not use the term "renewable" energy. Energy is not renewable. When it is used it's gone. It is like saying rain is renewable water.

When President Trump wanted to use a little bit of BLM land for oil drilling, the media was outraged. Crickets on this, tho.

Solar systems in hot desert areas require water cooling systems- is there enough water? Also after 20 years, these panels stop producing and need replaced. Right now California is overrun with expired panels that are caustic to landfills and they have no way to dispose of them. The elites will become billionaires on these systems and kick the can down the road for someone else to cleanup their mess after they are all dead and gone!

These vast, open areas have No infrastructure. They will have to build roads, utility stations, and maintenance facilities to service that many solar panels. And the employees will have to live somewhere. Who wants a job in the middle of a desert where its 120 degrees in summer?

The Greenies really don't care about the planet, wildlife, plants, etc and certainly not humans. They care only about money and power. You saw how quick they were to destroy the US lobster industry while wind farms are going up all over the NE and mid-Atlantic coasts at the expense of right whales and other marine life and birds.

What could possibly go wrong? Well, in this case, there should be no “unintended consequences excuse.” The activists and politicians supporting this should be required to post a massive indemnity bond to clean up those consequences when the occur. No excuses.

100,000,000 sq acres is 156,200 square miles. The entire state of California is 155,973 square miles. I don't think there are that many solar panels in the world. But China appreciates the effort. Oh.....btw..... solar panels drop in efficiency when they get over 90 degrees. So something that needs sunlight to work, stops working if it gets too much sunlight.

According to the Department of the Interior’s website the number of states is six. California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico. All of these states have huge acreages belonging to the federal government. Needs to be nipped in the bud.

Won't these vast solar farms interfere with the movement of wild animals and threaten their existence? The solar farms will be fenced in, preventing anyone or anything from passing through. Where's PETA? Sierra Club? Any other group that can be found on a bumper sticker attached to your local lefty's Prius, Volvo or SmartCar.

Anyone else get the feeling the whole green energy thing is being shoved down our throats whether we want it or not? The jerks seem to be OK with their plans killing millions of people. Guess that means it's up to the rest of us to make sure it doesn't. If this were about growing pains of getting new energy technology online, I wouldn't have a problem with it, but that is not what's happening. Humanity is using more energy, not less. We are replacing our current energy resources with something that will produce less energy. That's not going to work folks.

Poor example, #4. Water is recycled by nature endlessly. We have the same amount of water on earth now that we had when it stopped pulling together methane-water ice comets and rocky asteroids. The methane is trapped deep in the us far, far, FAR more natural gas that we will use in the next few centuries, and the water made the oceans...which evaporates to clouds, moves over land, and falls and then runs to the oceans again. Same water, endlessly recycled in our closed system.

President Joe Biden has awarded EcoHealth Alliance – a controversial non-profit that partnered with the Wuhan Institute of Virology on manipulating viruses similar to COVID-19 – with new multi-million dollar grants for pandemic-related research. Run by notorious COVID-19 “natural origins” propagandist and Chinese Communist Party-funded researcher Peter Daszak, EcoHealth Alliance received millions of dollars from Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Health (NIH) agency for work on “killer” viruses. Summaries of their joint research – recently wiped from the Chinese lab’s website – reveal scientists creating “chimeric” viruses that spread in humans at rates “equivalent to epidemic strains of SARS-CoV.”

The Department of Defense estimates the total value of the gear Biden left behind at a whopping $7.12 billion, and now Putin is reportedly offering to buy whatever he and the battered Russian Army need.

In 2016, his last year as vice-president, “middle class Joe” reported between $291,000 and about $1 million in assets and income outside his vice-presidential salary of $230,700.
