LOS ANGELES – On a strip of California's Mojave Desert, two dozen rare tortoises could stand in the way of a sprawling solar-energy complex in a case that highlights mounting tensions between wilderness conservation and the nation's quest for cleaner power.
The site has virtually unbroken sunshine most of the year, and is near transmission lines that can carry the power to consumers.
Who should win this battle? What environmental impact should we be concerned about?

Well, in Al Gore's book, Earth in the Balance which he wrote many years ago, he concluded that the earth would be ok if there were no humans. So, we save the tortuses at the expense of human need, save the 2 in. long fish but let the humans starve. Yeah, they read the book.

I never understood the "hate humans" ideology. We are also part of nature too. The earth will go on, with us or despite us.
