Amid the agonizingly slooooow rollout of solar energy initiatives in the U.S., there's a fallacy embedded in the process: That you need huge swaths of land to site the panels. Not so, says one enviro skeptical of a proposal of a major solar array in the California Mojave. From the L.A. Times:
But such degradation isn't necessary. We can have solar energy while keeping the desert wild and public lands truly public.
