Solar energy spars with spiritual lands in California
March 3, 2011 New Scientist
NATIVE Americans in southern California do not see a bright side to the prospect of six new solar-energy projects crowding the Mohave, Sonoran and Colorado deserts they have called home for thousands of years.
A group called La Cuna de Aztlan Sacred Sites Protection Circle has united with activists to challenge the projects, which have been approved by the US government. The group claims that the facilities will threaten burial sites and ancient geoglyphs.
