I am so thankful for groups like this stepping forward to try to stop further destructive practices on fragile and beautiful lands. We need to restore areas already abused, not add new ones to them.

This is B$. So-called conservationists are working to restrict every source of efficient clean energy available. Nuclear power is the cheapest available, followed by natural gas and coal. Nuclear power, like gas, has zero emissions. Even coal now has very low emissions.
Wind and solar power are both very expensive and unreliable. Solar generation is only good during non-cloudy days and is useless at night. Wind generation, likewise, requires a breezes of constant velocity. Insufficient wind produces little or nothing, while excessive or gusting winds require extra safety mechanisms lest the blades and or turbine are damaged. Both require power storage capacity (batteries) for when production is decreased. This storage capacity is of limited lifetime and uses much in the way of hazardous material. Even when all is working well, there is a lack of transmission capacity from ideal production locations to population centers.
As for the land that mill would be sited and its immediate surroundings, there is a surfeit of laws to guarantee cleanliness and safety.
The "conservationists" seem determined to make energy production as expensive and dirty as possible.
