    Liberalism = Socialism = Solar Power = FAILURE

    Fossil fuels will be around for some time to come but the transition off the dirty black stuff has already started. It won't happen overnight but eventually the taxes or fees to pollute with be more than the 'economical' advantage.

    The EPA has phase in regulations starting in 2013 and in full effect by 2016. It will be just too expensive to burn coal for electricity. Solar will look downright cheap by then.

    Add in the California 30% mandate, China mandates and the Japanese conversion and Solar has enough customers many years out. The current panic is typical of too many people reading too many headlines.

    • Technology has resulted in clean coal...

      The Left had to invent CO2 (our breath) as pollution to control power generation, because fossil fuels are so clean today.

      Solar did to Spain exactly what it will do to California and any other country that commits economic suicide, in order to appease the Left.

      • Clean Coal ? That is as much an oxymoron as Military Intelligence or Honest Politician.

        No matter which 'Clean' coal process you pick when the total cost is TRULY calculated is is more expensive than nearly all solar.

        Carbon Dioxide is the most minor of all issues relative to burning fossil fuels. It just happens to be the one aspect that is economically and technologically feasible to deal with at the moment.

      2013? There will be a new EPA before then!
