    I'm a long term thinker. This is why I love Solar, so good on this. How anyone can dislike an investment that will pay off in a scant decade is beyond me.

    But debt is not the way to finance this, because then it doesn't payoff. You're buying your energy from the bank instead of the oil company.

    It is a good question. It's actually coal companies for electricity.

    My distrust of banks is larger than my distrust of energy producers, but not by large amounts.

    He gambled on solar and was anti-fossil fuel for three years. He really had no energy policy beyond "green energy"

    He failed on both getting any actual energy and even more at getting any jobs out of it at tremendous cost to taxpayers. Now he is stuck and this new "all of the above" stance is supposed make up for the failed energy policy he had for years?

    Idiot.

    It is not the advancing of technology that failed, but rather the way it was executed under Obama. Investing and subsidizing technology research is one thing. Investing in crony capitalism with cash to businesses (that backed your campaign too) under the guise of "green jerbs' was a complete failure.


    Anyway you slice it... Obama's energy policy sucked.

    The crony capitalism is wrong. The jobs produced per dollar spent is a fiasco and it was poorly executed. Combined with the reduction in permits and a fiscal policy that has harmed the value of the dollar and poof.... shitty energy policy and a huge increase in fuel prices.

    Also, there will more than just Solyndra in the failure list. Fisker Karma and Chevy Volt are all Green Jerbs bullshit. Solazyme (look up that crony capitalist mess)

    I assume you are complaining about Solyndra? They sure did have a bunch of cronies...they were so popular they had "cronies" in the Bush administration AND the Obama administration. Talk about reaching across the aisle.

    I also wonder if the new tariff to offset years of Chinese protectionism for solar companies would have helped keep Solyndra in the black...

    Obama had no energy policy.

    Actual energy policies deal with reality such as pipelines.

    Obama's No Energy Policy involves fantasy and pipe dreams.

    In a curious way, part of the genius of America has been a collective forgetfulness, a talent for somehow outdistancing problems in a headlong race toward something new. It is a form of heedlessness, perhaps, blithe and profligate, but also an exuberant forward spin that may spare people the exhausting obligations of revenge. —Lance Morrow

    wasn't it established that the "pipeline" wouldn't do anything for the price of oil in the US, but really just give us some jobs during construction?

    kinda like saying Bush's energy policy was to let our economy almost destroy itself, thus causing a spike in oil, a massive loss of jobs, then people stopped driving allowing the consumption to relax thus bringing the price down

    that's a sweet policy

    Amusing story about the same type of thing. I was in 5th grade and the teacher told us to come up with an invention. I came up with a solar powered sidewalk because even back then I was a lazyass. He shook my hand and congratulated me for thinking of that. It was probably the late 70s. Even then I thought why not use the sunlight since it's free and doesn't smell bad. My reasons are still essentially the same 30+ years later.

    I am tonight setting a clear goal for the energy policy of the United States. Beginning this moment, this nation will never use more foreign oil than we did in 1977 -- never. From now on, every new addition to our demand for energy will be met from our own production and our own conservation…

    I will soon submit legislation to Congress calling for the creation of this nation's first solar bank, which will help us achieve the crucial goal of 20% of our energy coming from solar power by the year 2000…

    To give us energy security, I am asking for the most massive peacetime commitment of funds and resources in our nation's history to develop America's own alternative sources of fuel -- from coal, from oil shale, from plant products for gasohol, from unconventional gas, from the sun…


    Sounds good - he even installed Solar panels on the WH, what a progressive!! Thank god the WH is green!!!

    Oh...

    Didn't happen. Carter was out after one term. Reagan brought back the good old days. He took down those stupid solar panels on the White House roof.
