    Feinstein, whose proudest achievement is the 1994 Mojave Desert Protection Act, wants to continue protecting the home of the desert tortoise.  

    Feinstein is not my idea of a perfect Democrat -- her opposition to undamming Hetch Hetchy shows that she's an inconsistent enviro protector -- but this isn't a "war on solar."

      It is shocking in a way that she made this move exactly at the same time California is struggling to meet its renewable portfolio standard and setting even higher goals.  California is also studying renewable energy paths for transmission; which have environmental criteria attached.  There are already many areas in this region protected, why go and close even more?
