How's this for Hypocrisy? Wind farms are not prosecuted for killing protected birds of prey but oil and coal companies are. http://www.businessinsider.com/obama-eagle-death-wind-farm-oil-energy-epa-2013-5While that may be true that they aren't protesting at the races, I've seen plenty of them giving plenty of dirty looks armed with cameras.
The hypocracy is overwhelming. For example, just today the California head of the Ku Klux Clan came out and endorsed Hillary, I'm hearing pins drop. Remember just a few weeks David Duke Endorsed Trump? It was a media fire storm...
You probably shouldn't be the voice of land use. Here was a great opportunity to educate people but instead you insult the guy who started the thread. I appreciate your efforts but please understand that it doesn't HAVE to be a thankless job unless you make it that way.MM: It may be a shock but this and other concerns have been major discussions for a long time; yet a lot of the elite in the community seem to have ignored the issues... I enjoy the endless spam I receive, and hope that in the future maybe a little of that energy might focus on important issues that affect the sport & community.
Well, according to many of 'them' man is modifying the weather, right? Besides that, many places where of roading is banned due to things like dust or erossion are actually affected by teh weather much more than off roading would affect, and the cumulative impact is what the Gov't uses to modify or eliminate the activities of man. Pismo Beach Dunes is a perfect example of this. Even when off roading has been stopped temporarily due to something that has happened in the area, the dust collectors down wind still pick up high particulates and the environmentalists still use that data to try and stop off roading in the dunes. So while weather may not be 'man made', they sure do use it to stop our sport.You claiming weather is man made?
Otherwise, I fail to see the point of your post.
Well said, Herding cats. Off road racers want to be individuals. They think they come up with Top secret ideas that allow them to be a winner against a very few , WOW look how bad arse i am haha. Classes cant even organize to get a bigger payback from a promoter to cover some of the big money they spend for a hobby. (Rednecks that race Monster Trucks figured it out) If off roaders do not unite we will never have a say of what happens in or to our playgrounds. Back to MM solar farms are a total scam by politicians period. We only need rooftop solar.My humble opinion, this is partly symbolic of how "they" win. We sit around and complain on the internet to each other, argue with each other about who, why, etc, then go back to our garages to work on and play with our toys.
They mobolize, spend their money on their causes, write their elected officials in droves, join and support groups that actively fight for their cause, etc.
In my personal opinion, we lose in part because we don't all pull in the same direction. They do. It's been this way for decades. The collective "we" is upset, outraged, and interested but we don't translate any of that in to meaningful and tangible actions designed to affect change.

True the state of Nevada did the same thing and has forced a coal fired power plant to shut down in 2 years. I hear over and over that a large majority want clean power and we need to stop using coal . But it is a fact that solar and wind power cost 3 times more than coal, and no one told these people that their power bill will more almost triple when we lose coal as a power generator. Well we will breath easier when we can't afford to run the AC when it hits 110"This is the only solar that we need, on our roof tops"
But that isn't what the Gov't or environmentalists have created as an alternative. Those solar farms live because the Gov't, through pushes by the enviro crowds, mandates that existing power companies MUST BUY alternative energy from clean sources. In California, that amount is up to 25% of power supplied. With that being a mandate and fines and penalties for not complying, rooftop falls way short of that goal. The Gov't is basically mandating that these farms be built to meet those goals, and the fact that in the winter time, when power demand eclipses even the hot summer months, and solar produces at it lowest capacities, How are they going to offset that demand with 25% alternative when:
-It doesn't work at night.
-It doesn't work sell when cloudy.
-It doesn't work well when covered with snow.
-It doesn't work well in rain.
See the problem? Gov't in cahoots with the enviro lobby has created a scenario where solar, which could have been a good thing, will now become a financial disaster because Gov't got involved.
