Interior Secretary Gale Norton appoints ombudsman for renewables

Read about it here.

This was my favorite part:
"If the agencies don't work together the process can be endless," said Karl Gawell, executive director of the Geothermal Energy Association. "The idea of having someone at that level that can make something happen is exciting."

But environmentalists issued caution. Katherine Morrison, an attorney for U.S. PIRG, an advocate group, said renewable energy may not be appropriate on all public lands.

"It's still development, and any development should be sited carefully and go through the environmental review process," Morrison said.
Really. There has to be a way to stop development in case it obstructs someone's view off Nantucket.
