A different kind of fire was applied to Terra-Gen corporation 12.17.19 by the Board of Supervisors of tiny (140,000 people) Humboldt County.
Four to One against a project offering forty-seven 600 foot high monsters on top of seismically active ridges in the Cape Mendocino Bird Flyway - truly what's "not to like" about that - and a company which drops money left and right to change people's minds and even offered the Wiyot people one million dollars (1/10th of the total tax revenue for a 30 year project) to sell out. Cheryl Seidner - speaking for the Wiyot - told them "We do not sell our Mother."
