Welcome to our dedicated platform, a collective voice of concerned individuals passionate about protecting the Mojave and Great Basin deserts’ rich biodiversity. Our mission is to conserve these crucial habitats, home to a wide variety of plant and animal species, against large-scale industrial encroachments, particularly renewable energy projects.
Our platform seeks to raise awareness about the potential ecological impacts of the proposed GreenLink transmission system and similar projects. These projects, despite their green energy objectives, pose significant threats to the biodiversity that keeps our planet thriving.
We focus on the pivotal balance between tackling climate change and preserving biodiversity. With the world’s wildlife having been wiped out on average by 2/3rds, in the last 50 years and the extinction rate being estimated at 1,000 times the natural background rate, it has never been more critical to prioritize biodiversity preservation.
This website serves as a beacon for those who stand against the large-scale construction of solar and other renewable energy projects within our cherished habitats in the Mojave and Great Basin. We invite you to join us as we urge political leaders and government agencies to adopt a ‘do-no-harm’ policy approach towards the natural world, and halt projects that jeopardize these precious habitats.
Explore our site to learn more about the issues, join the growing list of undersigned supporters, and discover how you can help make a difference in preserving our planet’s irreplaceable biodiversity.
DOCUMENTARY FILM SERIES
Desert Apocalypse (2021) is a compelling four-part documentary series that delves into the controversial GreenLink transmission system, and renewable energy development on Nevada’s public lands. This project, while promising a renewable future, threatens to industrialize approximately 9 million acres of public lands, much of it dedicated to solar energy development. Our series intimately explores the potential ecological impact of this plan on the Mojave and Great Basin’s delicate, yet abundant, ecosystems.
Filmed on location in the captivating landscapes of Nevada, “Desert Apocalypse” combines stunning cinematography with in-depth investigative journalism. It aims to unveil the consequences of such extensive industrial energy development, emphasizing the unintended fallout of our transition to green energy.
Throughout the series, viewers are taken on a revealing journey that uncovers the paradox of progress: the conflict between our push for renewable energy sources and the preservation of our planet’s biodiversity. Each episode raises pertinent questions about environmental stewardship, policy decisions, and the future of our natural world, making “Desert Apocalypse” a must-watch for environmental enthusiasts, policy makers, and advocates of renewable energy.
Through its intimate narrative, “Desert Apocalypse” serves not only as a visual exposé of the imminent threat facing our deserts but also as a poignant reminder of the delicate balance between advancement and preservation in our continuous pursuit of sustainability.
