Now that they got the desert tortoises on the run, they want to use them for advertising! Anyone else got a problem with this?

I don’t know why but after viewing this at a solar blog, this is the first thing that came
to my mind from the exchange between the Army’s attorney, Mr. Welch, and Senator McCarthy, at the Army hearings, an exchange that directly led to McCarthy’s downfall and
the end of a horrible time for our country. I am in no way equating current events with
those, the quote just seems so appropriate in response to this travesty.

“Let us not assassinate this lad further, Senator. You have done enough. Have you no sense of decency sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?”- Mr. Welch at the McCarthy Hearings 1954

I believe this quote fits this photo and the efforts to make money off the desert tortoise’s current situation to the “T.”

Using the man-made disaster affecting the tortoise due to concentrated solar development, to sell rooftop solar, not only is beyond the pale, but about the dumbest advertising move that I
have ever heard of. Outrageous and utterly stupid and unnecessary.
