I question WHY the County Board of Supervisors is so quick to approve industrial projects that degrade rural neighborhoods [you can count on the housing prices going DOWN near this solar project, a primary reason to fight it] and that will DESTROY THE HEALTH of the area. Yes, I said, HEALTH problems will result, cancers and more, as the type of electromagnetic pollution (called electrosmog) that comes from solar arrays and power lines (above or below ground) is dangerous to health. Solar farms produce this, even solar panels on the roof do. But this will be magnified by many thousands of times with a solar project of this size in a neighborhood. The people fighting this project likely have no idea on the health risks. It also is very disturbing that SDG&E has a dozen projects that citizens have had to fight, if I am reading the article correctly. The County Board of Supervisors has been very quick to support projects like cell towers, wind, and solar that sound beneficial but are a health menace, in reality. Their irresponsible behavior has caused the county to have sharply increased levels of electrosmog pollution, which is a menace to pregnant women and their unborn children, to babies, for children of all ages, seniors, and those with medical conditions and disabilities. More cancers, more learning disabilities and school failure, more autism, more people with Altzheimers may result, according to a team of international scientists that recently issued the BioInitiative 2012 report (www.bioinitiative.org). The County Board of Supervisors have been stone-faced when being presented with the evidence that smart "utility" meters, placed on every home by SDG&E in the past 3 years, are a menace to health, in addition to seriously degrading privacy, security, and low energy bills. Why are they stone-faced? I'd like to know. I have heard a lot of noisy criticism of SDG&E from Diane Jacobs, for instance, but her votes and support of community health by saying no to cell towers, to solar and wind projects where they will impact the environment and people are what count. I think the County Board of Supervisors make irresponsible decisions FOR industry and against the citizens and would like an audit of the contributions they receive, and an audit of the County itself, to see if MONEY is influencing the County's conduct in approving these industrial hazards that degrade San Diego County in so many ways. Lastly, remember, these people are elected. You can do something about that. www.electrosmogprevention.org for more info on the dangers of electrosmog and what to do about it. Fight these solar projects on the basis of health impacts now! http://sandiegoreader.com/users/photos/2013/jun...
