    I’m hoping that the guy who chiseled the calendar died and nobody else cared enough to continue!

    Wind and solar energy are only viable because taxpayers are stuck with the bill. Neither source of energy can compete financially with hydro, coal, natural gas or nuclear energy.

    Only in the short run. Long term, the costs of hydro, coal, natural gas and nuclear, or at least the clean up after them if that is even possible, will be astronomical. Not to mention the costs in health issues to date. Wait till one of your nuclear power stations blows up like the one here in Japan, and you will understand the cost.

    Then burn the termites – they’re full of wood, should go up a treat!

    Very well said. It sounds a lot like the unfunded financial liabilities that conservatives worry so much about burdening their children and grandchildren with. Why aren’t they demanding action on this issue?

    Wind and solar are all around us and it is nuts not to use them. Why is oil and coal getting any subsidies when they are over 100 years established and making money hand over fist? Subsidies only for new industries. Even Alexander Hamilton agreed with that idea.

    Ditto. The nonrenewable energy industries have been heavily subsidized in the past and most continue to be. Even if you took away the direct subsidies (tax breaks included), they’d still be indirectly subsidized, at least until such time that they are required to fully mitigate any negative externalities (such as pollution).

    Not ever. I was told we would have solar and wind, along with viable electric cars when I was in high school. Nixon was president then.

    what health issues we are living better and longer then any one this side of Noah and Methusala. And by the way it didn’t blow and NO ONE has died from it. And they are still going with nukes for power, and the germans are regreting giving theirs up and wind and solar FAIL to provide enough power.

    Talk to the green weenies, their the ones who are blocking nukes, and trying to stop fracking which has dropped the cost of nat gas though the floor and made the US one of the only countries to REDUCE it’s carbon footprint.

    @Night-Gaunt49

    First what the environut call subsidies are tax breaks available to any good sized company, second they actually can produce power on demand which wind and solar cant.
    And so far the goverment has spent almost a trillion dollars, of poor peoples money, on donor companies that have gone bust because they can’t make a vialable product.

    I lived in California in the late sixities and have vistied since. back then we had serious problems most have been solved by freemarket solutions only a few by goverment dictate.
    Pollution in todays world is a minor, but not inexpensive issue, see gulf coast. it is largely over and done with
