Dear Friends and Fellow Concerned Citizens,
We (a group of concerned citizens) have organized a PRIVATE brainstorming session on January 6th, 2010, 2:00 p.m. till 5:00 p.m. in the big room at the Kingman Public Library located at 3269 N. Burbank Street, Kingman, AZ.
The intent is to review and produce credible OPPOSITION presentations to the Arizona Corporation Commission's (ACC) Line Siting Committees Hearing concerning the "proposed " Hualapai Valley Solar "WET-COOLED" parabolic trough solar power plant. The hearing is being held at The Hampton Inn and Suites, 1791 Sycamore Avenue, Kingman AZ. and shall begin on Tuesday, January 12, 2010, at 9:30 a.m. and continue on Wednesday, January 13, 2010, at 9:30 a.m., and, if necessary, Thursday, January 14, 2010, at 9:30 a.m.. The hearing will adjourn at approximately 5:OO p.m. on each day. Additional hearings, if necessary, will be noticed on the Project and Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) websites. https://edocket.azcc.gov/ plug in docket # 09-0541-00151 to view documents.
So far no big deal as far as I can see. I even sort of admire the water worry warts here because they realize they need to appeal to the majority of local folks either not on their side to begin with, or haven't been paying much attention in the first place. I believe it is the latter the water worry warts are hoping to deceive... I mean reach out to. More...
Organizing a structured and thorough OPPOSITION to the proposed "wet-cooled" Hualapai Valley Solar Plant's ACC application is imperative to the future of Mohave County. If we collectively assimilate organized and factual science into our presentations we can be assured of positive results.
And here is where it all falls apart for these darlings. They have no factual science to use in their presentations, never have -- never will.
But I do love the 'collectively assimilate' usage... I figured all along that the water worry warts were part of the Borg all along... and sadly if locals do not wake up to their tactics, resistance will be futile.
I hope someone on the good guys side attends this meeting... just for the laughs mostly. I'd love to see the lies... errr... I mean factual science they intend to use to dupe the ACC.
Through joint efforts we can also assist others (citizens, neighbors, friends, families, associates etc.) in assuring their comments are recorded appropriately and given the attention that it deserves which will make a positive impact on these very important decisions being made by ACC.
Now, in all seriousness, I can admire the effort the water worry warts are taking to 'teach' the folks how to lie... errr... make a case that there is no water left in Mohave County. And in Arizona, if they tug at the right heart strings of the sitting ACC members just right, they will get their wish to further erode private property rights and see to it that less positive economic activity is ushered in to the area.
Property rights and free enterprise -- more threatened in Mohave County than the supply of water. That's a fact.
We are sending you this "personal invitation" but please feel free to invite like minded friends and associates as well. This is an OPPOSITION effort to the project so only those OPPOSING the "wet-cooled" solar project will be welcomed to participate.
The citizens invited to participate in this session are some of the brightest and most independent minds in Mohave County! Thank you in advance for caring about your community enough to speak out in defense of the same!
Obviously I did not get a 'personal invitation' to this event, chances are if you are reading about this community organizing event here on this site for the first time -- you didn't get personally invited either. But... that doesn't mean you can't attend, right??
I honestly wish I could attend this meeting on January 6th from 2:00pm to 5:00pm at the Kingman library on Burbank (I'm guessing either the room a the library wasn't available after normal working hours or could it really be that all the 'brightest and independent minds in Mohave County' are retired or unemployed).
If you are concerned with private property rights and free enterprise and now plan to attend, I ask that you be nice and respectful in any interactions you might have with the water worry warts. If anything ask easy questions (like 'when??') and listen to their answers. But mostly, I urge everyone to be courteous and respectful (even though you would not get the same in return if the tables were turned).
