The new “green math” on display in the Ivanpah Valley.

To a mathematician or a big solar operator, the math on display is elegant,
precise, and simple. As well as breathtaking in its’ audacity and decisive in
its’ application. And as easy as “one, two, three-----“

Here is the formula. Note that there are wildcard operands that I will list at
the end of the equation, which can be inserted as needed. From your high
school algebra, just think imaginary numbers.

take lots and lots of other people’s
money
, for example 1.6 billion taxpayer
loan guarantees

Wildcard operands:

an apathetic, indifferent public

government officials and agencies in the pockets of big renewable energy promoters

carbonmentalist(no neologisms allowed)certain environmental group higher ups in the
pockets of the big renewable energy promoters

well meaning desert activists being marginalized by #2 and #3 above and ignored by #1 above

rumors of our coming economic demise not being heard by #2 and #3 above, as in financial zombies
walking, tottering along but still capable of inflicting huge damage to anything that gets in the way

An alternative to the above equation is another way to say the same, just
minus the high level math:

ivanpah032410hike 032

                                     with the help of this
021311mnptrip 094

      turns into this which may become the new definition
021311mnptrip 009

                  of desert “beauty”, unless the average person becomes
           alarmed at what may become a dangerous trend- to maximize
          the revenue stream from “unproductive” wilderness use- and
          rises up and demands that unused rooftops and unproductive 
          degraded land and “brownfields” get utilized first for local power
          generation.

It is a true statement and should be obvious to all by now, that We the People will have to be the ones to stop this raping of our environment now before it goes any further and the wilderness of our country is destroyed by means of this very simple equation.

So far, I am not sanguine about the prospects of that happening.
