The Corruption of the Government?

This is a setback for solar power proponents and companies. Considering that the BLM lets mining companies pollute ( and they are among the worst polluters ) and oil and gas companies lease public land for drilling, this seems like it's not in the public interest. I wonder who stands to gain from this, electric utilities, perhaps? The weakening of these startups so that they'll be cheaper to buy appears to be the goal here. We are talking desert locations. The limiting environmental factor here is lack of water due to lack of rain. These plants will likely have to drill water wells which won't be cheap. Plenty of Sun for solar array and mirrors. Who really runs BLM?

Sanity prevails over corruption?
