Somebody please tell me that Time magazine screwed the pooch when they
"The poster child for the frustrations that power companies face is the
proposed 600 Megawatt Coyote Valley generator that Calpine Corp. wants to
build in San Jose, in the heart of Silicon Valley. The facility would light
600,000 homes in a region that experienced blackouts last week, but the San
Jose City Council vetoed the project in November, even though groups ranging
from the Sierra Club to the NAACP supported it. But the plant faced
opposition from Cisco Systems, the leading producer of high-speed
fiber-optic networks, which happens to be San Jose's largest employer.
Cisco argued that the power plant would be an eyesore next to an industrial
park that the company plans to build for 20,000 employees."
I have difficulty believing that Cisco would fight against something that
would be so beneficial for not only them, but their entire community, just
because it would be "an eyesore."
