    I don't really feel like a jerk, I did solar because I want to live cheap not save the world but it is a shame the technology is so polluting.

    ROTFLOL... talk about absurd.

    In Europe they're way ahead of the game. they've stolen taxpayer money for this idiocy, and have wind turbines (that nobody would build except for the subsidies).

    They have thrown money at Bio Gas stations for farms; and the farmers scooped up the cash and built, built, built until the subsidies ran out; now places like Germany are largely monocultures of corn to feed these idiotic stations. Really environmentally sensitive... ROTFLOL... farmers used to rotate corn into their firlds every 3 to 4 years. Now they plant it every year, and to manage these field they pump in nitrates and in the autumn give it a nice shot of atrazine!

    And as one critic noted, they're building hydro stations in every little piss trough. Like that's the solution. Doh.

    Let the market figure it out. They'll do it without taxpayer money... if there is money to be made in it.

    And in Europe... electricity prices are skyrocketing!

    Idiots.

    Really... let's see... Obama has created how much debt? He has generated how many jobs? His foreign policy has made a lot of allies?

    Romney a greed monger? ROTFLOL... you really have been poisoned by class warfare rhetoric.

    Romney has done more good for people than Obama could dream of doing. Obama should have at least tried to run something in the private sector before running the world's largest economy. The Olympics perhaps. Or, like McGovern... at least something small like a bed & breakfast so he would learn, like McGovern, the huge problems and burdens government creates.

    I'll be darned. You mean Europe is concerned about Global Warming and you are not. True about biofuel that it is a waste of money and not truly renewable, just a big subsidized kiss for the Corporate Chemical groups. Nothing is free, especially fighting global warming, or you can stick your head in a hole and pretend it's not happening. All the Corporate that profits handsomely from the causes of global warming will be your cheerleaders and mental peers. I think the Flat Earth society may be able to save you some seats.

    Some truth there. He's nearly as bad as the famous president G. W. Bush, the first moron. Still, he has a few years left and may be able to surpass the feats of the "First Torturer." The memorial from George, "The GW Bush Great Recession/Depression" continues. Perhaps you hadn't noticed?

It certainly isn't in the American marketplace, but it does exist and it is in use as we speak to provide power for 53 different nations. To illustrate the point, I put the Enercon E-126 wind turbine on the table. The E-126 is a 7.6MW turbine; just one of which can power more than 1,700 American homes. Europe was deploying these babies while the United States was tinkering with turbines only capable of a fraction of the output. Why weren't they sold here? Because the United States International Trade Commission prohibited them from entering the US market.

    I never said the technology doesn't exist.

    What said was, "the technology isn't there yet", meaning that solar and wind energy are't technologicakly advanced enough to replace petro-fuels.
