This week's attack in Palm Beach resulted in some damage to the pilot's eyes:

Regina, Saskachewan, Canada. Pop: 179,000
2011- one attack, 2012- five attacks, 2013- 12 attacks

Most local laser incidents were reported over the northwest part of the city, he added.

All types of aircraft — from “the flying club to airliners” — have been targeted.

Hunter said that pointing a laser into the cockpit of an aircraft in flight could bring the offender a fine of up to $100,000 under the federal government’s Aeronautics Act or up to five years in jail.

The airport authority and the Regina Police Service ask that any such laser incidents be reported immediately to the Regina Police

Service at 306-777-6500.

There is more information on the issue and its potential dangers at www.tc.gc.ca/lasers

Said Hunter: “We don’t want anyone to go to jail or pay a fine — but just to stop.”

Are these shined into the cockpit as they are landing? It seems that the angle would be too steep otherwise.

Jury Convicts Couple For Shining Laser At Fresno Police Helicopter
By Newsroom America Staff at 22 Dec 10:39

(Newsroom America) -- After a three–day trial, a federal jury has found Sergio Patrick Rodriguez, 25, and Jennifer Lorraine Coleman, 23, residents of Clovis, California, guilty today of aiming a laser pointer at a Fresno Police helicopter, Air One, and, as to Rodriguez, attempting to interfere with the operation of Air One.

According to evidence presented at trial, Rodriguez and Coleman used a high-powered green laser pointer to repeatedly strike the cockpit of Air One during a clear summer night last year.

New warning over laser attacks on planes
A commercial airline pilot has issued a warning over “brainless” laser attacks after his plane was targeted during an approach to Newcastle Airport
The pilot – who asked not to be named – spoke out after the incident last Wednesday, which occurring during heavy rain and strong winds.

“The weather was atrocious, with strong turbulence and crosswinds outside of the legal limits for my first officer,” he told the Evening Chronicle. “The aircraft was being battered by the gales and the landing conditions at the airport… required total concentration from the flight crews, and in particular, myself as the captain landing the aircraft with a large number of passengers inbound from the Mediterranean."

He said he felt a searing pain in his left eye and turned to see a bright green last coming from the area around Kingston Park

... solar thermal facility ...
It may be of interest that there is a significant difference between the Ivanpah thermal facility that you refer to and conventional photo-voltaic facilities.

The former operates with mirrors (designed for maximum reflection), the latter uses panels that directly convert light into electric current. They are not optimized for reflection.

The important point is that PV panels are usually adjusted to face the sun, whereas the thermal mirrors are adjusted to reflect the light to a central point on the ground.

So once the thermal facility is operational, it's mirrors will reflect the sunlight away from the sky.
It is very likely that the reported glare was caused by misadjusted / nonoperational mirrors.

In comparison, PV panels are much more prone to cause reflection glare (directed to the sun's position), though with less intensity than mirrors.

Regarding the public funding: the project received a loan through the Department of Energy which is to be paid back with interest.

This is what the Ivanpah Array looked like from our plane at 8:45 am on March 20, 2014.

When there are numerous hits across the country in a short period of time as covered in the news recently it begs the question whether these are totally random or are there people that encourage this kind of idiocy.

Here is the news article about the recent spate of laser strikes:

Doing a quick search I found one chemtrail conspiracy advocate who encourages that very action and it leaves me wondering about others who also incite that activity.
