    THIS kind of Solar Placement IS AN offensive move AGAINST BEAUTIFUL NATURE BECAUSE MILLIONS OF ACRES OF UGLY ABANDONED URBAN SPRAWL, FACTORIES, SHOPPING MALL ROOFS ETC. ARE AVAILABLE FOR SOLAR. The site remediation costs of decontaminating heavy metals will be enourmous and the poor people of the Adirondacks will have to pay.

    STOP ADDING MORE HUMAN BABIES TO EARTH TO MAKE THE DESPERATE, INCREASING DEMAND FOR ENERGY GO AWAY.

    Shame on a nearby college for setting a bad precedent by adding a 10 acre solar farm to rural land instead of placing a solar array on a nearby shopping center.

    There’s no creating thinking in putting solar in rural, wild areas.

    I love how many people spew the NIMBY ideology: “I’m for solar/renewable energy, just Not In My Backyard”. How very progressive of you. (enter eye roll here) Get over yourselves. However, I also think that solar should be developed in urban areas that are already vacated by factories, malls, buildings for many years. NYSERDA/NY Govt policies are forcing farmers to vacate their businesses, just so they can push through their enviro-colonialism in rural areas. It will only get worse with the Prop 1 on Nov ballot. You think Prop 1 is only about putting money aside for Enviro projects? You are being led down the wrong path. Of course everyone wants clean water and air. But are you willing to give NYSERDA unlimited power, b/c that’s what it will do.
