Is Green Energy Good for the Environment?

This article talks about the recent opening of Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, the world’s largest solar energy plant in the world. It covers about 5 square miles in the Mojave Desert of California. It has plans to power around 140,000 homes with 400 megawatts of power. This sounds like great news. On the other hand, we are finding out this plant is actually damaging the environment. The plant is responsible for mass killings of birds and the relocation of thousands of desert tortoises. The question now is whether green energy is actually going to be good for the environment.
