The Solar Boondoggle in Germany

From Der Spiegel, and account of how solar power has cost too much, and generated too little electricity.

That’s what happens when you get a whole cult around “green,” and nobody asks the tough cost/benefit questions.

It’s not that solar never makes any sense. It’s that political correctness never makes any sense.

You want some costs and benefits? Cost: a lot. Benefits: even more given the alternative should we keep pumping greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere. The thing is, if the US was an early adopter, they'd have the ground-floor advantage. People like you do a double disservice; increasing the likelihood of environmental collapse, and decreasing the probability of US becoming a leader in avoiding such. But you go ahead and play that 3/97 split. History, and your grandchildren, will judge you harshly.
