Ocotillo Express Wind Farm

13,000 acres going. Wind farming will be the next big open space threat. This one has a bit for everyone. Loss of wheeling, Loss of areas to target shoot and this one:

May 19, 2012 (Ocotillo) -- In a precedent that has horrified wildlife experts, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has authorized the “take” (meaning harassment, displacement or even death) of 10 endangered Peninsular Bighorn Sheep – five ewes and five lambs.

Big money being played here. More info on link below along with petition to stop construction. This could move into your wheeling area.

Cant drive 55..........
