The US Department of the Interior gave approval to the construction of a 186 MW Tule Wind Power Project owned by Iberdrola Renewables. The project is the first one approved for public lands among the other five wind projects agreed on by Secretary Ken Salazar and then by the governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2009. The wind project will be built in the In-Ko-Pah Mountains of San Diego County, California (USA).

According to the Director of Permitting and Environmental of Iberdrola Renewables, the company worked closely with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in order to minimize the impact of this wind project in particular- on golden eagles. The Tule Wind Power Project will bring annually 3.5 million dollars revenue to San Diego budget and 2 million dollars annually to the total economic production after becoming the project operational, creating 915 jobs and generating green power for 65,000 U.S. homes. It will be connected to the proposed Boulevard Substation restored part of San Diego Gas & electric’s East County Substation Project.

The crucial finding from the analysis is that 20 oil, gas and coal companies can be directly linked to over one third of all energy industry greenhouse gases in modern history. Despite knowing the destruction and dangers their activities pose to our planet and people, fossil fuel companies have been driving climate change and hold the key to avoiding impending disaster. What this points to is the urgent need for divestment, in spite of skepticism amongst some leaders.
