Well, I have to admit, you made me laugh with your graffiti comment.<quoted text>
Locate solar generators in cities where the power demand exists, reducing the need for transmission corridors.
How about covering the Empire State Building with solar panels, with virtually no impact to the environment/
Of course, Galt sees an immediate problem with urban solar problems...difficult for the sunshine to penetrate the graffiti.
But, yes, NIMBY, that's why you people want to destroy the desert instead of your urban paradises.
Remember the wind power facilities off Hyannisport killed by the Kennedys?
That being said, NIMBY is a two way street. Those of us on the coast have had off-shore oil rigs forced upon us. Seems only fitting that those living in the desert learn to live with Solar Energy plants.
