Environmentalists merely push Luddite socialism. The latest example comes from an effort to stop a solar power plant in, where else, California.
From Investors Business Daily:
This week, leading environmental groups cheered when the city of Los Angeles refused to buy electricity from a proposed new power plant.
"The Sierra Club is delighted to see the city do the right thing and choose not to sign a power purchase agreement with this harmful project," Sarah Friedman, a senior campaign representative with the organization, told the Los Angeles Times.
The Natural Resources Defense Council said it had "significant concerns" about the project.
So what are we talking about here? A new CO2-spewing coal plant? Something that runs on "extraordinarily dirty" oil from the Canadian tar sands?
Nope. These environmentalist groups are celebrating the likely demise of a solar power plant slated to be built in the Mojave Desert.
The article went on to say these socialists are fighting on behalf of 100 sheep.
They want a nation of sheep.
