They are dirty, environmentally and geopolitically. Just look at Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Russia.
I have solar panels on my roof. So far no wars to take over my roof.
You idiot natural gas users don't realize that natural gas will run out too. It puts carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide in the air. Obama and the EPA have great plans to start limiting 'methane' in the air. I can see it now EPA mandating a methane meter implanted in every one's butt to measure the methane output.
Liberals, uneducated and educated idiots are the ruination of the country.
I'm glad you have solar panels on your house. Of course, I hope you get enough sun to keep it working. You do realize that there are a lot of places in the nation, where you don't. Just like those electric cars have a hard time taking the cold winters in much of the nation. Oil, Gas and Coal are the fuels of today and tomorrow. It The green tech will not be the future, till they bring the costs for the energy they produce down to the level that people can afford. Remember all that wind power is the most expensive way to produce power, and requires massive subsidies. So if you get the government out of picking companies to endow with taxpayer cash. You might achieve that long term end. The way Obama and the Democrats are doing it now, only delays the development of economically produced green energy.
one problematic aspect of this for conservatives is that the States have been more guilty of providing subsidies to renewables vis renewable portfolio standards, and net metering policies, than the Feds. So as you go on the predictable rant against big gov't, the primary culprits are in the State legislatures.
I appreciate the sentiment, but as long as you're still connected to the power system your solar panels are backed up with fossil fuels. Moreover, you're still left with the environmental impacts associated with the production of the panels themselves. Nothing's perfect, everyone should be aware of the trade offs.
THAT'S THE SAME IDIOT LOGIC THAT ALLOWED TIMBER COMPANIES TO CLEAR CUT.
in addition.....SOLAR SYSTEMS CAN BE ON OR OFF GRID. try educate yourself. see the facts. MUCH DIFF. THAN WHAT YOU SUGGEST. !!! nothing perfect. DOING NOTHING IS DOOMED. we had 30 years of that with NIXON, REAGAN, FORD, 2 BUSHES. nothing has been tried. It didn't work. PERIOD.
YOU ARE WELCOME. My community has a great tiny bus system. Run on nat. gas. It runs all over my little coastal community. SO 7 YEARS AGO, I GAVE AWAY MY CHRYSLER VAN. so you are correct. I no loger buy gas. or oil. thanks. if we all attempt to cut back. demand craters and the price collapses. fact.
HEY CHECKER, Imagine instead of whining about a pipeline... obsolete in 10 years... only 45k temp jobs.
cry cry cry... but that group of PUsiieeeez GOP, not a word about fitting ALL PUBLIC BLDG'S WITH ROOF SOLAR....IMAGINE.
