NIMBY alert. Renewable energy is wonderful as long as it’s invisible


Upper class NIMBY twits in Marin County, where they have a simply wonderful plan buying renewable energy produced elsewhere, voted down a solar project in their own county because someone might have to look at those icky photovoltaic panels. Oh the horror. An entire one acre plot would have been filled with the ghastly things.

“This is a visual blight on the area. Don’t get me wrong, I’m for green energy, but I don’t want a windmill in my front yard and I don’t want a solar farm in my back yard,” said an especially vocal upper class twit.
