The solar guy wins and the tree guy looses which is good for both but raises a moral question of who has preference over who? Both have legal environmental issues that they have tried to address and they have both done their parts in being as environmentally friendly. The courts were baffled with the said law which is now sure to get an upgrade for trees are more important in our efforts to improve air quality. Solar panels on the other hand are secondary band aid solutions and are assets which could be moved to new locations whilst the trees can be only moved by cutting them down. The solar guy wins and the tree guy has to cut down some of his trees to give way to solar guy’s need of ray’s but who’s right? This highlights the need for review of outdated laws which may or may not impact the environment as a whole and gives credence to outrageous defense by corporate lawyers in the event of environmental disasters. Many of them could have been avoided if only people have listened and done their part.
Why me, is a question many of us ask, well, you want to live and continue living? Do you want to eat, see your children grow up and many other questions to which we all know the answer to. It is time to pay attention and take part and to take a stand for something.” You have to believe in something for without it, you are nothing”.
You decide nature or man’s band-aid efforts to correct years of neglect?
