Was BLM head, Neil Kornze groomed by Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, to handle the Chinese Solar Farm deal? Here’s the facts. You draw your own conclusions.
From the U.S. Dept. of Interior web site: http://www.doi.gov/whoweare/blm-dir.cfm
Kornze got his degree in politics from Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington. (NOT land management)
Kornze got a master’s degree in international relations (NOT land management)
Kornze was Senator Harry Reid’s aide for eight years until 2011.
Kornze was a key player in the development of the Western Solar Plan.
Kornze was under Senator Harry Reid’s thumb and tutelage for eight years.
Kornze’s master’s degree in international relations would be helpful in dealing with China to build their proposed solar panel deal in Nevada (ENN).
Kornze was only thirty-five years old when appointed director of the Bureau of Land Management.
Some Senators were concerned that Kornze was too young and too inexperienced to head the BLM.
From the Review Journal online posted August 3, 2012: http://www.reviewjournal.com/steve-sebelius/costs-conflicts-arise-reid-push-green-power
Reid is pushing for a Chinese company he played a key role in recruiting to Nevada, ENN Mojave Energy LLC.
The company plans a billion-dollar solar energy manufacturing and generating plant near Laughlin.
Ambitious development schedule is being threatened by a lack of green power customers.
Author Steve Sebelius quoted Sen. Harry Reid as saying, “the project “would start tomorrow if NV Energy would purchase the power”.
Reid has beat up NV Energy pretty good in recent years. (would be competitor to ENN Solar energy company)
Reid blocked plans to build coal-fired power plants in Nevada. (would be competitor to ENN solar energy company)
Senator Harry Reid’s son, Rory Reid, is one of the attorneys for the ENN Mojave Energy project.
