Respect to the Quechan tribe for fighting to keep their land free from these useless monstrosities.
Here on the East coast of England we are over run with them just off the coast, half the time they do not move or generate any power and when they do manage to generate power 90% of it is wasted because it can not be stored - a complete waste of tax payers money, other more effective choices are available eg; tidal, it is guaranteed to go in and out.

I am an environmentalist who loves wind energy. But I think that religious sensitivity is very important, and that Native American's have been denied it too many times. It should only be in extreme circumstances that we take actions such as this, and this does not meet the criteria...

Stay off the land that belongs to the Native American Indians. This is sacred ground and it needs to be respected. Leave the Native American Indians alone. They have had enough taken from them. Stick your wind mills somewhere else!!!!

Read and noted. Thanks Cal for posting the article. I'm all for green energy but on this I'm standing with the tribes. Surely the energy company can find another site. hope the injunction stands and the ROD revoked.

Boy there would be no end to it if Arlington Cemetary was a future site for windmills, would there? Can't use the excuse that "no one lives there" either.

Did they speak with the tribe before going ahead with plans? We need windmills, but not when it is another obnoxious action by arrogant people.

The writer asked how I'd feel if something's built on top of my ancestors' graves. Innumerable things have been built over my ancestors' graves. Innumerable things have been built over everyone's ancestors' graves. No building on graves or anyone's sacred grounds means no building at all, anywhere, anytime.

By the by, this wind farm's not on reservation land. It's on public land.
