It's all about . . .
The California Desert Coalition (CDC) was formed to defeat the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power's Green Path North transmission project. With the support of our communities, we realized a tremendous success in stopping this ill-conceived project.
Today, CDC continues its efforts to protect our California desert and our unique communities for future generations to enjoy.
Our focus, as before, is to ensure that the California Desert, including its communities and public lands, does not become a sacrifice zone in the rush to develop renewable energy.
We work for green solutions that benefit the planet, and don't believe we have to destroy the environment in order to save it. As such we have been working with government agencies in the development of California's state-mandated Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan (DRECP). We intend that the voices of desert residents be heard in this process.
We hope you will join with us to ensure that the special qualities of this desert, where we chose to make our homes, are not taken away from us. As we recognized in our effort to stop the transmission lines:

CDC's Most Important Project:
Please join with CDC and participate in the DRECP planning process.
What the California Desert will look like in the next half century will to a great extent be the result of the current planning process for the DRECP, and the plan has the potential to dramatically effect the communities of the Morongo Basin.
