Quotes

But they said that on balance California had more to gain from the project than it had to lose
"When new technology arises, manufacturers tend to focus on the development of their product's unique features as well as amazing user-friendly interfaces. However, product safety and performance concerns should also be addressed during the production stage" said Barry Yu, General Manager for Greater China, Consumer Technology Division, UL

"PSEGS, even in a modified form, will irrevocably harm Joshua Tree National Park's sweeping scenic vistas, as well as migrating and protected bird species like the golden eagles that travel through the park."
