Sustainable Alternatives

Published: November 9, 2010, Author: JayTaber

The plan by Chevron and other investors to raze a quarter million acres of the Mojave for solar development illustrates the challenge of renewable energy within an unsustainable culture. Tidal, wind and solar projects elsewhere take into account environmental and indigenous resources, thereby maintaining a balance between consumption and conservation, but when market economics are the driving force behind government decisions, these human concerns are often dozed along with the landscape. As the makers of this documentary note, there are more sustainable alternatives.
