The future is solar and wind power. America needs to move away from fossil fuels.

The future is NOT solar and wind power. That is supplemental energy. Had first hand view of solar and it works in certain regions of this country. wind is very inconsistent and not going to ever run large commercial power needs or extensive large cities.

Hopefully, they will gather up all of the stupid and foolish posts you and BCF put in the local yokel newspaper and burn them. That should keep the lights on for quite a while.

study the European experience with wind and solar. Look at the costs, subsidy required, and the ultimate need for consist and stable flow of electricity. Let us truly be realistic About where And how wind and solar fit into our energy strategy. Please lay aside politics and emotion and let reason and intellect prevail..

The main reason we don't have more solar power is that oil companies don't own the sun.

Regressives have said "no" to every idea for boosting jobs over the last five years because they like high unemployment. (1) It keeps wages down, because workers who are worried about losing their jobs settle for whatever they can get -- which is why the median wage is 4% lower than it was at the start of the recovery. This in turn helps boost corporate profits, thereby keeping regressives' corporate patrons happy. (2) It keeps stock prices up, because the Fed is committed to buying long-term bonds as long as unemployment remains high -- which pushes investors into equities rather than bonds. This in turn helps boosts executive pay and Wall Street commissions, thereby keeping regressives' financial patrons happy.

(3) It keeps most average people economically fearful and financially insecure -- which sets them up to believe regressive lies that their biggest enemy is "big government" that will tax away the little they have and give it to "undeserving" minorities; that they should support low taxes on corporations and wealthy "job creators;" and that new immigrants threaten their jobs.

Progressives need to hammer home that (1) the real job creators are consumers, and that if average people don't have jobs or good wages this economy can't have a vigorous recovery; (2) the rich would do better with a smaller share of a rapidly-growing economy than their current big share of an economy that's hardly moving; and therefore everyone would benefit from (3) higher taxes on the wealthy to finance public investments in roads, bridges, public transit, better schools, affordable higher education, and healthcare -- all of which will help the middle class and the poor, and generate more and better jobs. (We also need a living wage, a small military, and less casino-capitalism on Wall Street.) - Robert Reich

Robt Reich was a miserable treasury secy and his opinion hasnt changed. Good luck with that strategy. Just admit what you like most is punishing the wealthy at any cost.
