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. The government has lower-impact options, such as putting solar developments on already degraded public and private land. It could also pursue the more efficient and far less damaging tactic of deploying solar panels across vast acreages of rooftops and parking lots.
