Environmentalists suing the Interior Department over… solar zones. Looks like the oxymorons are acting like oxymorons again. The thought process must go like this: We want green energy! No, we don’t want green energy! Yes, we want green energy! No we don’t! Yes we don’t!

the environmentalist mind…”Not in my back yard… I want everyone to be forced into the green energy racket, even though it can’t make it on it’s own in the free market, cuz I said so, but I don’t wanna see it, stick it in somebody else’s backyard so they have to deal with it, and it’s no-so-green effects on the environment cuz I said so.”

Pure progressivism. The state knows best.

Sounds like Ted Kennedy when they wanted to put windmills off Cape Cod.

Solar power only makes sense if done on an individual basis, home owner, by home owner, business by business. Big utility solar complexes like this will be too expensive to build and maintain and I’m betting the greenies are right about the environmental impact not being good. In fact, I would bet that the impact would be worse than anything a pipeline would cause.

The biggest problem with that is the panels need to be replaced by the time they pay for themselves.

Or sooner. Some aren’t lasting nearly that long.

Well, due to weathering and sun damage, the panels degrade, and produce less and less electric as time goes on.

Follow the money has always been a safe idea when one needs to take a closer look on a certain matter . I’m sure somewhere in green-land there is someone(s) that is peeved that they did not hit the lottery of “free” money ( you never have to pay it back ) .

Just think about it . Let’s say someone like Crowley( or like minded troll group ) realizes you have to kiss the royal sphincter to be considered for the big payout . One of the other losers ( by our standards ) kisses up a little better and wins , while Crowley( or one of the like minded troll groups ) is left with a bad taste in their mouth . TIME TO SUE !!!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again now -

This goes to show that what these people are really against is the future. They are luddites. They are against everything. It’s irrational (that’s a euphemism for “insane”). Some are sllightly insane (sierra clubbers, nature conservancy types), and others are stark raving nuts (earth liberation front, PETA).

Listening to their opinions is about as useful as listening to the opinions of a babbling drunk hobo waking up on a NYC subway grate.

I mean exactly that. It is not hyperbole. It is not an exaggeration to make a point.

Never mind, Yankee friends – carbon tax on the horizon, but do you really want it? Viscount Brenchley thinks you’d be far better off without it.

WHY did you vote OBummer back in?
